National Ford Mustang Day
April 17th is observed every year as Ford Mustang Day. This is a holiday that celebrates one of the most successful sports cars to ever be created in the United States. This series of American automobiles have been in continuous production since 1965 and is currently one of Ford’s longest-produced car nameplates.
As of the time of writing this holiday, the Ford Mustang is in its 6th generation and is currently the 5th best-selling Ford car. After it went into production, it quickly became the choice of car for action heroes.
A 1968 Shelby Mustang GT500 was used for the Thomas Crown Affair, a 1971 Ford Mustang Mach 1 was used in Diamonds are Forever, and a 2007 Shelby Mustang GT500 was used by I Am Legend. And those are only a small sampling of the movies this car was used in.
The History Of Ford Mustang Day
This holiday was created sometime around 2007 by Ford Mustang enthusiasts. It was conceived as a holiday that celebrates this car and the experience of driving one of these cars.
It also honored the men and women who restore these iconic cars and transform Mustangs that are destined for the junkyard into beautiful, powerful street machines. Powerful and graceful street machines that need no introduction.
