In preparation for the launch of its 2010 Mustang GT
--tenuous market be damned--Ford is encouraging Mustang enthusiasts to visit www.the2010Mustang.com and vote for their favorite photo story, of which there are 25 in the final running. The analysts claim Ford is sick
, and the company's financials seem to bolster their point, but a visit to www.the2010Mustang.com
gives a great audio sample of a plenty healthy V-8 wailing through the Mustang GT's bellowing factory-tuned exhaust.
Site visitors may click on one picture in a cool levitating patchwork of 25, at which point the selected image enlarges and the story behind the picture may be read. Ford wants your vote on the most compelling of these photo stories, and the lucky winner will win a 2010 Mustang
plus an all-expenses-paid trip to the L.A. Auto Show next month where the new 'Stang will be officially unveiled.
We've kept you abreast
as Ford has trickled photo teases of its new Mustang...from dashboard to billet pool-ball shifter to the new front end. And we'll be reporting from L.A. when the unveil goes down.
Long live the ponycar, hang in there Ford, and cheers to the car that launched the segment in 1964 at the New York World's Fair.--Colin Mathews
