Mustangs — hundreds of them — are galloping across America as their owners head to a pair of big roundups to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the introduction of the revolutionary American sporty car.
The largest group — more than 500 cars were pre-registered for the Mustangs Across America trip — left the Los Angeles area Thursday morning and drove to Phoenix, where the cars were corralled, fittingly enough, at the Rawhide Western Town and Steakhouse at Wild Horse Pass.
From Phoenix, the group heads east Friday morning, to Las Cruces, N.M., and then in subsequent days to Midland, Tex.; Dallas; Jackson, Miss.; and Atlanta before finally arriving in Charlotte, where one of the big Mustang rodeos will be staged. The other is at Las Vegas.
