See How I Celebrated Ford Mustang's 55th Anniversary


Last week, Mr. M and I headed out to Sandy Springs, GA, to attend my monthly auto group meeting to celebrate Ford Mustang's 55th anniversary.  The meet-up was at the fancy Ray's on the River restaurant, a place that Mr. M and I had one of our first dates when we moved to Georgia.

When we arrived in the parking lot, members of my group were crowded around the iconic Mustangs admiring the hard-hitting physique, colors, and sporty interior.

Did you know that the Ford Mustang is the world's best-selling sports coupe for the fourth consecutive year?  Also, the best-selling sports car in the United States?

Look around you; I bet you see several generations of Mustangs driving on the road today.  Mustangs fans run deep who enjoys adrenaline-charged rush everywhere they take their pony cars.


The Mustang is one of the most aggressive product rollouts in the industry, and in a little over two years, Ford 10 Millionth Mustang rolled off the line.

During the meet-up, we were introduced to Ford's Performance Pack 2 option to the Mustang, the 50th-anniversary edition Bullitt, a GT350, and a GT500, their most powerful production Ford ever!


These Mustangs are totally killin' it!  They're sturdy, good-looking, and a brand that never sleeps.

The Mustang GT500 was the one that captured me, especially with that Cobra icon grille and seeing that it comes in automatic.  There are people like myself that can't drive a manual but would love the opportunity to have a fast car.  So, it's a pleasure to see the automatic transmission option.

And, that 2020 Mustang GT500 Shelby going from 0-100 in a matter of seconds made my heart skip a beat knowing that (760 horsepower).  I don't know if I could handle a  mighty car like that.  Knowing me, I may lose control of the handling and immediately crash.  I will instead be the passenger and let the pros drive me around.


The starting price for the 2020 Mustang GT500 Shelby is $71k and added packaging options can make the price go as high as $100k!  WOW!

Fun times checking out cars with Mr. M.  Now, he is joining the auto group with me, so he can attend more often and help me with car questions and snap my photos.

By the way, are you looking for a beautiful date spot with your Hunny?  Rays on the River is a lovely place with Elevated Southern seafood dishes that are served in an intimate setting along the Chattahoochee River.
