Remember the Mustang family? The one that bought their dad’s classic Mustang back for him years after he let it go so he could be a good family man? This has turned out to be the gift that keeps on giving, because we decided to honor the family by bringing them to the Mustang Club of America’s Mustang 50th Celebration in Las Vegas!
Rick Lookebill is the dad whose great family rallied to track down and buy his Mustang back for him. We invited Rick and his wife, Judy, and daughters, Laura and Sarah Misner, to attend the massive Mustang event in Las Vegas as our guests, and arranged for VIP access so they could really enjoy the festivities!
Things kicked off with a party Thursday evening at the New York – New York Las Vegas Hotel and Casino on the Strip. It was here that Mark Fields, Ford Motor Company Chief Operating Officer, unveiled the 2015 Mustang 50 Year Limited Edition, and the Lookebills were able to talk to Mark and members of the Mustang team afterwards.
Over of the next days, the family was treated to even more exclusive experiences, including a hot lap with Vaughn Gittin Jr. at Las Vegas Motor Speedway and a tour of the Shelby American facility. Of course, they also got to see the hundreds of Mustangs that fans brought to show off at the event, as well as talk to experts and spend a little extra time learning about the all-new 2015 Mustang.
