PAST EVENT Community Fair 2013

065The Mustang crew showed up with some very sparkling cars, very easy on the eye. The Ford Mustang is about as popular a household automotive name as you’ll find.The Mustang is the longest surviving of the affordable breed of classic American muscle cars.Always found as a coupe and often in convertible and 2+2 fastback styles. Since its 1964 introduction, the Ford Mustang is the only one of the original pony cars to enjoy an uninterrupted production run. We found them and they are coming back in 2013 for our next community fair.
060On March 9, 1964, the first Mustang, a Wimbledon White convertible with a 260-cubic inch V-8 engine, rolled off the assembly line in Dearborn, Michigan. A month later on April 17th, 1964, the Ford Mustang made its world debut at the World’s Fair in Flushing Meadows, New York.
The first model Mustang, the early 65 (or as many refer to it, the 64 ½), was available as a coupe or convertible, and featured a base 170-cubic inch six-cylinder engine with a three-speed floor shift transmission.
An optional 260-cubic inch V-8 engine was available, in addition to a four-speed manual transmission or a three-speed automatic “Cruise-O-Matic” transmission.

Mustangs were not the only venue. Eartha the Ecological clown was there as well showing kids a fun time and painting faces to look like anything they wanted.031
