Just in time for the 40th anniversary of the Ford Mustang comes this first of its kind anthology of memoirs, stories, and reminiscences of one of Ford's most beloved models.
The Ford Mustang is a stylish, sporty car that anyone can dream of owning. Since its launch as a 1964½ model, the Mustang has remained in Fords model lineup, in versions from no-frills "pony cars" to true "muscle cars," such as the Boss, Cobra, Shelby, Saleen, and other hi-performance versions. The Mustang was launched by Lee Iacocca with a brilliant marketing twist that has become an essential part of modern automobile marketing everywhere: The base Mustang was affordable to everyone, but with a long, long list of options--from a variety of radios to a vast array of paint colors, high-performance engines to race-ready equipment packages--customers could have a specially built car of their own at a price they could afford. The authors of the pieces collected in this anthology come from a wide range of backgrounds: Some are Mustang celebrities and historians, automotive journalists, or authors; others are regular folk with a story to share about their special Mustang. The photography comes from a variety of well-known photographers and archives, and theres also a special selection of paintings and art. If youre still in awe of that first Mustang, still driving and tuning Mustangs, or still dreaming of Mustangs, then this book is for you.
