Ford Mustang is turning 50 next week and Mustang fans around the world are being invited to sign an electronic birthday card for the iconic American car. Ford's goal with the Ford Mustang Birthday E-Card is to break a world record for most contributions with more than 50,000 signatures and messages on an electronic card.
Over the course of five decades the Ford Mustang has become one of the most popular cars every sold with sales of more than 9 million units to date. Ford is hoping all the fans built up over the years for the Mustang will participate by signing the card, leaving a message, and then sharing the link on social media networks and bookmarking sites.
“The spirit of Mustang infuses everything we do at Ford,” said Steve Ling, car marketing manager for Ford. “Mustang inspires a feeling of freedom and independence for drivers and fans, and it helps to inspire everyone at Ford to create the best products we can for all of our customers in every segment.”
When April 17th, 2015 rolls around it will mark 50 years since Mustang officially went on sale and Ford is pulling out all the public relations stunts they can to honor the occasion. The new 2015 Ford Mustang convertible will be placed on the observation deck of the Empire State Building, dual celebrations organized by the Mustang Club of America will take place, and there will be a great American Pony Drive and an employee celebration at Ford Motor Company headquarters. Ford is definitely going to party for this occasion.
