OK, somaybe we really are car degenerates here at OnAllCylinders. We forget wedding anniversaries, neglect to send out cards for family birthdays--we can't even remember to put the garbage out for trash day!

Yet somehow we know it's the Ford Mustang's 48th birthday.

It doesn't make us bad people. After all, the Ford Mustang isn't just any car. It's the original pony car...a car that inspired a whole new breed of vehicle...a car that helped make high performance attainable for younger generations.
