Geoffrey from the Mustangdrivers.be contributed a nice article on his last visit to the Silverstone 2014 event.
I wish I had time to go there as well, but there are too many events going on this year.
Geoffrey reports with very nice pictures about the highlights from a Mustangers perspective, amongst them the appearance of the Mustang VI, the rare finds, Henry Mann driving the gold/red RHD (replica) Alan Mann Racing Team notchback, David Redhead and his mates Bullitt pair, the MOCGB parade lap and the Shelbys and Bosses that popped up in th field of Mustangs.
Enjoy his photos here

Ford Media lists this Mustang Pegasus again as a car that just made it into a clay model ..ignoring its appearance at the Ford Custom Car Caravan.
Though we all appreciate their huge archive, the media "taggers" seem to be always of another generation who do not know the Ford history.
Let's put them straight again that this car is still around and will appear very soon back on the show circuit like the DST 2 seater a while back.
Owner Ramon had the car painted meanwhile and we hope the assembly process is going faster than the dissassemble. Anyway this new pic is quite a treasure in any research.
Follow the restoration and its coming out exclusively on www.ponysite.de/pegasus.htm

You might have already heard about the Zombie 222 from the Bloodshed garage. Some may cringe about an electric drive in a Mustang, but at least this seems to fit the topic of a "Muscle Car" with an acceleration of around 3 seconds.
The guys need some help in making it happen for a first small series.
Although I hate to have another run of Fastbacks beeing molested for such kind of projects, the idea may need some support and pls. steer them towards the Dynacorn spare bodies for their exercises with some money out of your investors pocket. Thanks in advance

RIP James Garner
James Garner died at the age of 86.
He got worldwide famous with his roles in Grand Prix and with the Rockford files.
Revisit with us our special on him just for keeping him in good memories.

Bruce Thompson bought this nice 1968 T/A replica that once belonged to Russell Rosalez.
It is now in New Zealand and joining the racetrack events with Dale Mathers from Coastline Automotive.
Bruce ran the white famous Titus Godsall Firebird so far, but this outstanding Mustang may rather become his commuter...well not really, he shows it off at local street machine events and maybe at future historic events.

LE MANS CLASSIC 4.-6th July 2014
Ford France loaned a 65 Shelby 5S452 and prepared it for 3 journalistes under the banner of the Ecurie Ford France to celebrate 50 years Mustang at the famous french race track soutwest of Paris.
A huge Mustang parade was done with enthusiasts, the Mustang 2015 brought to Le Mans. Actually it went around the track with the Shelby 5S452, driven by Luc Depailler.
There were also a lot of Fiesta ST and the new Focus ST for a track circle racing experience.
Lots of thngs to enjoy for us Mustangers.
Sorry, I wasn't there, but you can see some videos here

Whenever a Mustang business is going out of business, a new one starts.
This is your opportunity to turn your work into a passion.
Mustang Corrall in Illinois advertises its running operation for sale.
Obvious many parts cars are around and the supply for sure never ending as long as Mustang parts wholesalers are around.
Give Sarah Hampton a call, if you want to change your job into an entrepreneur.

RIP Warren Veurink
With deep sorrow we have gotten notice of the death of this genuine Ford Concept car builder and customizer.
On June 7th, Warren died in his age of 83. Until last December he had been in touch with Ramon to help him on the restoration of the famous Mustang Pegasus which was a part of the Ford Custom Car Caravan in 1965.
His son will continue to share information with Ramon, now that we linked both again.
We will soon add updated pictures of the Mustang
Pegasus in its current status. The car has been prepared for paint and the
interior restoration is finished.
For more informaton on the Pegasus see this subpage

A thrilling new roadmovie has been realized last August and September in fantastic landscape sceneries of Norway with our mates up there. Most european Mustangers will recognize the yellow Fastback from norwegian main Mustang parts dealer Pony Parts although the one shown actually here on right is not their actual drag race car, but it is visible in the trailer.
The movie is done in typical Fast and Furious manner and will hit the cinemas on August 13th, 2014, hopefully in several languages.
Watch the trailer on youtube.
We will try to get an interview with the owners that played a vital role. Ah, and the movie name is Børning!

A very nice reward for the big effort our club made to gather 1000 Mustangs on Colonian ground at the Airport Butzweilerhof on June 6th through 8th.
Plus offering Ford Germany the opportunity to launch the new Mustang here after it disappeared in the mid 8oies from the official sales channels.
Each of our club board members got a nice artwork piece designed by Kemal Curic.
It will soon cover one of my free walls.

You may wonder where this 50th Anniversary took place, right?
My friend from the Mustang Club of Iran sent me the pic recently.
It is from their 50th Mustang anniversary meeting on 17th April 2014 in Teheran.
We will share soon more pics from him here. Stay tuned.
June 14th, 2014
Finally a private owned Alan Mann Mustang replica reenters the circle track in Sweden this weekend.
Though in 1964 Alan Mann cars never raced with a golden hardtop, the red-gold livery is linked to the Alan Mann Racing Team in most minds.
Anders Weiter finished his project for his customer Mr Christer Andreassen in Stockholm.
"He has slightly modified the color of the car to make it look like a famous Alan Mann Mustang. Mr. Andreassen will race it first time this weekend in Sweden. "
Our swedish colleagues up north may now enjoy it on the track.
Though we would still like to see a real Alan Mann car returning.

The 33th. European Mustang Convention of the First Mustang Club of Germany 1964-1973 e.V. was a blast. With over 760 Mustangs on Saturday and in total 902 registered plus special show cars and closeby parking for safety reasons rejected Mustangs we hit the mark of 1000 Mustangs. A first in Europe.
The share of classic Mustangs, which is our main domain was certainly another record.
Ford Germany cooperated in presenting its 2015 model with a red Ecoboost powered Fastback and a mineral grey Convertible. Both cars were presented by journalist and moderator Peter Kessler and Ford execs like Joerg Beyer (Design Director) and Wolfgang Gotschke (SVT Design Mgr.) including Event Team Leader Hubert von Zehmen and club representative Helga Mueller. We would like to thank them for the support including a factory tour for 150 participants. The new red Mustang FB was available there for individual photoshoots as well. Stay tuned for oncoming news. The FMCOG Board of Directors was awarded with 5 autographed designs by Kemal Curic of the new Mustang for its effort to make this show happen. President Ralf Wurm and Titus Dittmann presented the 6th Generation Mustang in detail.
See a short video of the 6.pm Ford presentation
Plus a scrap video of the outside area

A new german Mustang Book has been just launched. Street's Finest is actually the 4th American Car book of a series from the Streets Finest Publisher.
It contains several Mustangs of course and features a special about the First Mustang Club of Germany.
We will have a bigger number on sale at our oncoming 50th Anniversary Mustang Show in Cologne next weekend June 7/8th June at the Butzweilerhof.
There will be the biggest turnup of already registered Mustangs that we ever had in history and probably one of the biggest gatherings of classic Mustangs in Europe.
It will be on sale for 39,80 Euro.
Make sure you get one of the first ones next week on site or order online at Street's Fines website soon (not yet on there).

50th Anniversary - 50 stories at least from the big event in Charlotte
Meeting so many friends in Charlotte was a real big pleasure. My greetings go out to Holly, Gary, John and his group, Kevin, David, Greg, the many other Johns, Brian, Sven, Ed, the Steve's, Bill, Gale you name them and sorry, if I forgot anyone and ot the ones that I missed at the spots like Barry, Chris...again you name it, too many for such a short time. Great were the moments to run about Edsel on the parking lot, who got an "135" R-code owner speechless, when saying "Well, didn't know we built 'em".
One of my highlights was as well to drive over to Lee Holman and get a special tour through his race car shop and browsing the archive, seeing the many and only GT40 and 289 HiPo blueprints plus much more insider stuff. It was like going back in time. Discussing the Alan Mann connection, the surviving cars and TDF stuff was another good dialogue for further research.
Picture on left shows the winning TDF car, while in Skip Scotts hands.
Check out those 50 stories (25 published by now) here
April 11th - update 20th.
When was the last time you saw this Mustang I twice? Now its time again..
Back in 1962 actually 3 were made. The clay model, a show car and a running Mustang 1 concept car. All three carried the very first Mustang emblem from Phil Clark. Hand made and leaving no doubt, where the Mustang name and Pony came from despite all those narrations we still get presented. The badges of the Mustang I tell the true story. Look at them the next time you see it.
Which bring us to our newsbit. We all know there is one survivor - the car that was saved by the designers, which was at the 45th and now will be a star again at the 50th. But this one is completely new!
We don't know how it is actually displayed yet...and we had to learn ... changing strategy or just minds within Ford shortly before the event can make it a no-show. Do they read ponysite.de?
Thus was the case with the RETRO. We will keep you updated on those obscure and mysterious things in the background soon.
Watch out in the near future (summer 2014) for the MUSTANG I Retro. Still waiting, is it a doublette of the original and we just do not notice it when showed?
In memoriam of Phil Clark, the MAN who designed and handmade the FIRST EVER MUSTANG emblem and he put it on this car. The FIRST MUSTANG to bear that name was definitely the 1962 Mustang, whatever you read elsewhere.
50 years Mustang Memories.
Some things change.
Some things never end.
The famous gasstation Aurora near Andermatt in Switzerlandwill close down on April 23rd.
James Bond dropped Tilly Masterson off there in the movie Goldfinger. We remember that she later drove the white Mustang convertible that has never been located, though some traces indicate its whereabouts.
The owners of the Aurora gasstation would have to renew the gas tanks that were built in in the 60ies and the amount that would have to be spent is way too high.
Sorry - make sure you drive up there with your white convertibles until the 23rd to show your sympathy.
Our friend Reto Wigger brought this newsbit to our attention. A longtime Mustang enthusiast, whose 70 Shelby I photographed while being on holidays in the 80ies by coincidence, and whom I met in the late 90ies after some research to hand over the pictures and which initated a long time friendship.
Note - wherever you find a Shelby or Mustang,don't pass by, it could be another friend for the future. In contrary to Bond -we don't drop friends, we pick them up at gasstations and along our life road! Reto founded the swiss FNC with a mate in 1979.
50 Years Mustang
Man & Machine. Mustang. Adi.
Man comes first. Adi is the Man. The man of our First Mustang club of Germany.
Adi lives Mustang. I guess there is none in our club who did not have a chat with him about restoration details or his collection in the past 25 plus years, where he is a member. But Adi saw them comong already in 1964 and was hooked..
Adi worked hard his whole life and saved whatever he could for his passion. Along the way he had dozens and dozens of Mustangs, yet he kept to his first one as well. The collection today sees 8 cars including 2 Shelbys. Adi has another project ON - a 68 convertible, not his last one for sure.
Let's celebrate the MAN first. The owners and family members are the ones that made the Mustang an icon.
50 Years Mustang
Man & Machine. Mustang. Powered by Emotions.
Our new club magazine benefits again from our worldwide connections.
Featuring never published Concept Mustangs of all kind, background stories on one of the Fast and Furious survivor, exclusive sneak pics from the next month Playboy Mustang 2015 photo shooting, "backlash" Boss 302 restoration, Mustang journeys to Poland and visits of worldwide Mustangers in Germany and not to forget about the topic of Man & Machine. Live with the Mustang.
We classic Mustang drivers don't need SyncR, BluetoothR or USB-hubs.
We are already synchronised with our good old family members and one such is the Mustang for most of us.
A few early days Mustang maniacs are featured in our club mag.
Sorry, in german only.

Ford Club Services displayed 4 of our FMCOG club cars at their booth at the recent Techno Classica.
In a special 50th Mustang anniversary display 3 original T-5s from Kaethe Lowe, Hans Laschet and Andreas Dressen were shown plus one 1968 Convertible.
The 1971 Mach 1 belonged once to famous singer Howard Carpendale, the white Fastback is still a one-owner car since 1965.
Our own booth drew a lot of new members and a combined Ford Club dinner with the management of Ford and club officials turned out very interesting news for all parties involved.
And looking forward to see you in Charlotte,
