LITTLE ROCK, AR - More than 200 Ford Mustangs dating back to the 1964 model will roll into the capital city on Sunday.
They're passing through town as part of a tour celebrating the 50th Anniversary of the Mustang.
Here are more details from the Mustang Club of America:
The year is 1964, the month is February, the Beatles invade the USA and appear on the Ed Sullivan Show. Millions of people experience a life changing moment. In May of 1964, the first Rolling Stones LP is released in America. But somewhere in between February and May of 1964, an American life changing experience was introduced to the world.
It was called the Ford Mustang and on April 17, 1964 the automotive world was changed forever. Hard to believe, but those first owners of the 1964 Mustang were cruising the country listening to the Beatles and Stones on static filled AM radios and we are now cruising into the 50th Anniversary of the Mustang on April 17, 2014.
On Sunday, April 13, Little Rock will be part of the celebration with 200 plus Mustangs roaring into Little Rock for the night. The Mustang Club of America's National Pony Drive is cruising to both Charlotte and Las Vegas Speedways for a 5-day celebration with thousands of other Mustangs from all over the country and 17 other countries.
Little Rock has been chosen as one of the host cities for the eastern pony run and as the participants will celebrate with an old fashioned cruise in at Shackleford Crossing Sunday night starting around 6 p.m.
The best day to see Mustangs from every generation will be on Monday morning when ALL the Mustangs will gather at the new Crain Ford location in Little Rock (Colonel Glenn Plaza) beginning at 7 a.m.
Crain Ford will be the staging area for the 200 plus Mustangs before they pull out onto the Interstate and head to Memphis for lunch and then to Nashville for the night! What better way to see all generations of Mustangs than when a few hundred of them are all lined up like a herd of ponies just waiting to break free? Be a part of history and join the Mustangs at Crain Ford on April 14.
