The birth of the Mustang, 17 April 1964.

Awesome image…and 50 years later designers have cycled back to those glasses and hairstyles haha

I wish they’d remake the Mustang I and put it into production.  With the 4C coming out and the new Miata, Alfa Spider, and Toyobaru twins, this is a great time for Ford to get into the sports car market.  Could you imagine a poor man’s 4C, built with proven Mustang parts?
