Men and women came in groups from North America, South America, Europe, Australia, and New Zealand. They carried the flags of their countries to the Charlotte Motor Speedway in Concord, N.C., and made their way then to the Las Vegas Motor Speedway in Las Vegas, all to celebrate the 50th birthday of the Ford Mustang. Some of them even shipped their personal pony cars from their home countries to participate.
“Even though the Ford Mustang has not traditionally been offered globally, the passion for the first pony car is truly international,” said Ronald D. Bramlett, executive director of the Mustang Club of America.
If you ever once considered that the appeal of the Ford Mustang could never make it out of North America, think again.
