Although there is no corporate blog yet for the Ford Mustang, the car has since shortly an official corporate Twitter account. Don’t know what Twitter is? I won’t explain that to you, because these guys do that a lot better than I ever could.
Don’t expect a lot of updates though. Until today this is all you see, but I was promised more is about to come. I also tweeted @FordMustang already but no reply just yet.
Seeing all this I decided to set up my own account, namely @iblogmustang which will feature updates from this blog, and other Mustang related ramblings so I don’t have to bother my followers @crossthebreeze anymore ;) So if you’re on Twitter as well, you know where to follow me.
During a phone conversation with Scott Monty a few days ago, Scott talked about the FordCollection.com website, a site that sells … well Ford ‘stuff’. Scott is head of social media at Ford Motor Company and since we’re in the same business (although totally different regions and products) and we share some of the same Mustang passion (with the difference that I think he drives one and I definitely don’t) we had some extra good reasons to catch up.
Anyway – I was looking between the Mustang related items in the store and noticed this tin sign, which I had seen at classic car shows in the past as well. Only the price ($12) is much lower than what I have seen so far. Luckily I didn’t order right away because a few days later I came across the Steedshop.com that sold the same sign for $10.88 and had information about international shipments (something I couldn’’t find at FordCollection.com.
I will try to order something at both online shops and will let you know which comes out best (at least for international). One thing is clear from the start – if you want choice, Steedshop.com is the best option.
Thank god it’s Friday, you’re getting a double treat today – the 1970 ads for both the Boss and the Mach 1. First the ‘70 Boss 302 or Son of Trans-Am as they’re calling it, referring to the Boss Mustang winning Trans-Am races year after year.
Same year, same style of ad: the Mach 1 – pronounced Mach Won! Now that’s a nice way to say you’re a winner, this time referring to the 1969 Manufacturer’s Rally Championship.
Two more days of AdClassix, keep coming.
Do you agree with Carroll Shelby that good driving is fine are? Carroll Shelby presents the road cars… GT 350 and GT500 for 1967.
More AdClassix tomorrow on this blog ;)
Probably not an print ad like the others but I would guess part of a brochure or something: “Specifications and features”.
Join me tomorrow for more AdClassix.
Try total performance for a change. Mustang hits the starting line full bore!
See you tomorrow for more AdClassix.
To start of this week you’ll need to take the Mustang pledge first. They key message for me:
“You will not yawn when people talk about the performance of other cars”
See you tomorrow for more AdClassix.
The Mustang seems to have a thing with guitars, Fender guitars. Or Fender has a thing with the Mustang, not sure who’s taking the lead in this. One thing is sure though, there are plenty of people at both companies that believe there’s a good synergy between them.
Also the Shelby GT had one some time ago (which apparently did sell out fast) …
Funny enough, when you go the the Fender website, none of these guitars are mentioned but they do have this one: ‘65 Mustang.
“Small and fast—like a sports car! Fender is proud to reissue the ’65 Mustang guitar (1965 was the first full year of Mustang production). Originally designed as a “student model,” the Mustang was nonetheless destined for greatness, and has been seen slung over the shoulders of great players such as David Byrne, John Frusciante, Kurt Cobain, Todd Rundgren, Graham Coxon and Adrian Belew, to name but a few.”
Finally, there’s one that I could only find on Steedshop.com – the “45 Anniversary” Mustang Fender Accoustic Guitar.
So, looking at all this Mustang guitar goodness – which one would you prefer? I’m not talking about the most expensive or most exclusive necessarily but the one you think makes most sense or looks the coolest of all? Let me know in the poll below.
