Let's make some more magic....

The 1964 1/2 Ford Mustang went into production in
Dearborn, Michigan forty six years ago today. Unveiled to
the public at the New York Worlds Fair in mid-April,
the car created an immediate sensation and changed
the automotive world.

Growing up, our next door neighbor was a car guy.
In the late summer of 1964 he showed up with a rag-top
model. We felt very cool cruising with him.

Wouldn't it be great if Detroit could recapture a little of
Lee Iacocca's old magic?


  1. I think if any car company put out a few models that looked like they were designed by a human instead of a wind tunnel, they'd do very well.

    The new Mustang actually looks pretty good, but you're right, it needs a little "magic."

  2. I love my stang, but would trade it for a '64 in a heartbeat!
