Ford rolled out the 45th anniversary of the Mustang in style at Barber Motorsports Park in Birmingham this weekend. 38,000 enthusiasts showed up and they were rewarded with over 2,000 pony cars from all over the world. From factory-original Eleanors to 2009 550 KRs, there was virtually every iteration of Mustang ever produced on hand to represent the blue oval. Mustang maverick Steve Saleen made an appearance, no doubt signing more dashboards than anything else. Track and road racing ran throughout the event, and despite the ‘Stang’s reputation for high horsepower and quick runs through the quarter, just as many owners were comfrotable parking their cars and putting their gleaming metal proudly on display. The Mustang is an iconic muscle car that has been a mainstay of the automotive industry for generations, and despite all that is going on with the American carmakers at the present time, the significance of celebrations like these cannot be overlooked.
