If you weren't aware, April 17 was the Ford Mustang's 48th Anniversary. That means we are just two years away from the 50th anniversary, which the Mustang Club of America announced yesterday is going to be an absolutely HUGE event!
They plan to hold not one, but two celebrations simultaneously from Wednesday, April 16 to Sunday, April 20, 2014. One event will be at the Las Vegas Motor Speedway in Las Vegas, NV, while the other will be held at the Charlotte Motor Speedway in Concord, NC.
Everyone is invited to the party--not just Mustang owners and MCA members!
The Mustang Club of America will also be organizing several "Pony Trails" rides from a variety of locations, which will allow Mustang owners to caravan together to the nearest event.
After a huge event in 2009 for the 45th anniversary, we had a few ideas of what the 50th might look like:
- Thousands of Mustangs! More than 2300 Mustangs attended in 2009, and we believe that many more will be coming out for this celebration.
- The 2015 Mustang: The latest rumors have the newly redesigned Pony Car being unveiled at the New York Auto Show, which will be running at the same time as the 50th Anniversary events. Would it surprise anyone to see a new 2015 Mustang at some point during the 50th anniversary celebration?
- Mustang enthusiasts from all over the world: More than 55,000 people attended or participated in 2009, and we're sure that even more will be coming out in 2014, from all over the world.
- Special concerts, big events, hundreds of vendors, and more! With it being the Mustang's 50th anniversary, we're pretty certain that anything is fair game for the 50th anniversary celebration, and we're very excited to see what the MCA and Ford has up their sleeves.
We encourage you to keep checking back. As more details and information gets released, we will pass it along so you can make your plans to attend one of the Mustang's 50th Anniversary Celebrations in April 2014!
