The Ford Mustang Sets a World Record!
APR
17

To help celebrate 50 years of Mustang, fans all over the world were invited to sign an electronic card on the Ford website. And the number Ford had hoped to reach? Another 50…as in 50,000! That goal was eclipsed in just one week.

The top 10 participating countries were the United States, Canada, Germany, the United Kingdom, Spain, Australia, Brazil, France, Mexico and Italy. In fact, people from more than 160 countries visited the Ford website to help establish the first Guinness World Record® for the most signatures on an electronic birthday card.

“It is my honor to be the official Guinness World Records adjudicator for Ford Mustang 50th birthday and to award Ford the Guinness World Records title for the most contributions to an e-greeting card celebrating the momentous occasion,” said Johanna Hessling. “We wish Mustang many more milestone birthday’s in the future!”

Greetings included “Happy 50th birthday to one of the best cars in history, the Ford Mustang!” wrote Kevin. “You only get better with age. Here’s to 50 more.” Shayne wrote, “Happy birthday to the Mustang; you have been my favorite car as long as I can remember, and you single-handedly brought me to the Ford side.”

According to Guinness officials, the Ford record is a first.

Bob Dumas I was fortunate to be a part of the 50th birthday celebration in Charlotte NC. Our Yellow Mustang Registry left their stamp on the event and we met some members from Nova Scotia (Tom and Lois) who were very friendly and made the event even more special. Congratulations Ford and Mustang on a wonderful 50 years. Can't wait to buy my 8th Pony.

Dennis F Doran Jr Fifty years ago i ordered a red and white mustang when they first came out from the local dealer, payed my deposit and waited for it to arrive. It did arrive but i was notified be a friend at the dealership that he had sold my car to another person. To put it mildly i told the dealer where he could put his dealership got my deposit back and left. Never did i own a mustang but many years later my son bought one and i wish to this day i had swallowed my pride and just ordered another. way back then. True story.
