The Ford Mustang officially turns 50 on April 17, 2014 and as you may have guessed the Blue Oval has a lineup of events planned to help celebrate the anniversary. These include a repeat of the 1964 stunt where a Mustang was taken to the roof of the Empire State Building in New York, as well as two week-long events starting April 16 and to be held simultaneously at Charlotte Motor Speedway and Las Vegas Motor Speedway.
If you can’t make it out to one of these events, you can still take part in the celebrations via the world wide web. Ford Motor Company [NYSE:F] has launched an electronic birthday card for the Mustang’s 50th, and it’s hoping to smash the world record for the most signatures on an e-card by recruiting more than 50,000 signees.
