Isn't today the 60th anniversary of the release of the Mustang?
"Low she sits on five spoke wheels
Small block eight so live she feels
There she's parked beside the curb
Engine revving to disturb
She's the princess from his past
Red paint gold stripes damned she's fast"

The Grand debut was a little early in Finland. This is from April 12, 1964. VIN# 100167. Yes, it is still around.
