Another 50th birthday celebration brings together the best of every generation.
Following the New York Auto Show and its widespread Mustang madness, we've all seen our fair share of the Mustang’s 50th anniversary celebrations. But with 50 years-worth of automotive awesomeness and so many examples still in top shape, there’s definitely room for one more. That’s why the Petersen Automotive Museum in Los Angeles is preparing an epic exhibit called “Mustangs Forever: 50 Years of a Legend,” which promises to bring together pony cars from every generation.
The exhibit opens to the public this weekend and showcases some 20 examples, each with a significant historic importance and a special tie to California. Highlights include a 1967 “MALCO Gasser;” a 1969 “Four-Engine” dragster; four Shelby Mustangs; a 1968 GT California Special; Ronald Reagan’s personal 1965 Mustang convertible; and of course, the 1971 Eleanor Mustang from ‘Gone in 60 Seconds’. Most of the participants will remain on display until October.
