Ever since its initial release, just a little more than 50 years ago, the Ford Mustang has been inextricably linked to the image and meaning of the Ford name itself.
We can imagine few better venues, then, for the world premier of the Mustang documentary Demon on Wheels than the Carlisle Ford Nationals collector car show and swap meet in Pennsylvania.
Enthusiast site Mustang 360 recently shared the news that the film would be showing there on June 6th, 2015. The Mustang documentary follows the story of Mike Ondish, whose 1968 Ford Mustang dominated the streets in his home turf some decades ago. But gradually, as with so many historic cars, the Mustang saw less and less use, until it was retired to a garage for three decades.
After so long, Mr. Ondish decided to restore the classic pony car as his own, personal homage to his hero: the late Carroll Shelby. Interestingly, this Mustang documentary features an appearance from the luminary Mr. Shelby, as Mike Ondish meets him for the first time. From there, the film documents the long process of rebuilding an aged, historic piece of motoring Americana.
The Mustang documentary Demon on Wheels was directed by Christina Eliopoulos, who is excited for the premier. Said Eliopoulos: “Carlisle is the site of the largest gathering of Ford enthusiasts and Ford vehicles we’ve ever seen, and we can’t think of a better place to share Mike Ondish’s quest to rebuild his classic Mustang than among the thousands of Ford and Mustang owners in Carlisle for the big show!”
