Yes, today is National Mustang Day, April 17. On this date back in 1964, the Mustang was introduced to the world at the New York World’s Fair.

And it’s such a nice coincidence when the Mustang’s “birthday” happens to fall on the day after you receive a RAOK from The Bell King. And not just any RAOK, but this:

That is a beautiful piece. It also happens to represent the first car I ever owned.

Unfortunately, I was t-boned in it and could not afford to put her back together. I dearly miss that car, but I will own another someday.

Thanks for looking and happy birthday, Mustang!
