Goodguys “Mustang Madness” Will Be A Galloping Good Time

Ever since Lee Iacocca’s Mustang debuted at the 1964 New York Worlds Fair, Ford’s pony car has captured the unbridled imagination of car lovers around world. It mirrors everything great about our car hobby, freedom and good old American ingenuity. The Mustang was the originator too. There would be no F-Bodies or Challengers, not to mention Celicas, Velosters or A5 Coupes, without this brainchild from Ford.

Not only that, but Mustang will soon be sixty years old! With millions manufactured over the last five decades, they are ubiquitous on most every corner. Like the old adage, “a chicken in every pot,” the Mustang has been very successful fulfilling the notion that there should be a sporty steed in every driveway.

If all this reminiscing about Blue Oval beauties turns you on, grab your partner and do-si-do down to Columbus, Ohio, for the biggest Mustang corral in the country! “Mustang Madness” at Goodguys’ 24th Summit Racing Nationals presented by PPG, will feature an incredible round-up of Mustangs. From early cars and Foxbodies, all the way up to Coyote powered stallions. Whatever Mustang strikes your fancy, there will definitely be something there for every equestrian Ford fan.
