You had two places to be this week if you are a diehard Mustang fan, owner, or enthusiast. Your options were Charlotte Motor Speedway or Las Vegas Motor Speedway as those were the locations of the biggest, baddest, and most vibrant Mustang 50th anniversary parties in the world. Hundreds upon hundreds of cars poured into each locations and we chose Las Vegas to hang out at because that’s how we roll. There were owners and enthusiasts from all over the world at the event, which had everything from a show to hot laps on the track and who knows what else. Shockingly, this wasn’t some automotive Star Trek Convention. The Mustang isn’t a niche car, it is an integral part of the high performance scene in America and has been for 50 years. These gatherings proved it.
The fact is that the Mustang deserves to be in the same discussion with the ’32 Ford, the ’55 Chevy, etc. In fact, it actually trumps all those cars because they were largely short term successes but the Mustang has endured for decades. Through the awesome years and the horrible ones. Through the throes of Ford’s struggles in the 1970s and 1980s, through the threat of being replaced by the effing PROBE!
