Wild About Cars & No Limits Magazine Announces "Countdown to the 50th"

Celebrating Mustang's 50th Anniversary 

Wild About Cars is very pleased to announce that we have created a special series of articles chronicling the legendary Ford Mustang. These articles are being published in 24 issues of our No Limits Magazine, culminating with a special issue released on April 16th, 2014 - the 50th anniversary of the introduction of the Ford Mustang.

The series "Countdown to the 50th" will describe each of the major variants and models with special emphasis on significant vehicles. The articles will draw from Wild About Cars and the Auto History Preservation Society's vast library of Ford factory brochures, advertisements, photographs and magazine road tests. Subscriber Mustangs will be featured as examples of these great cars. This issue commemorates the kick-off with many examples of the type of material we will be showcasing.

We are also pleased to announce that Wild About Cars has the cooperation of Ford Motor Company and we have been granted access to their archives for many current and historical documents, brochures and photographs. Thanks to Ford for their help!

Additionally, Ford's Marketing Department will keep us informed of any special commemorative events and activities - which we will report to you through No Limits Magazine.

For the next 24 issues of No Limits Magazine we will have an article on a Mustang, beginning with this first issue. That issued contained lots of current Mustang material - the 2011-13 Mustang is exposed and there's also a Tech Section story on the "Coyote" 5.0 V8.

In the June 1 issue we covered the 2005-2009 "retro" look, and we  highlighted the Shelby variants, beginning in 2006. In each issue, we step back a little further until we reach next April, when we converge with the original 1964 Mustang released on April 16, 2014 - and when we cover Ford's commemorative 2015 Mustang.

Craig Sparkes, Director of Marketing for Wild About Cars adds, "Ford has a very enthusiastic and energetic plan to build excitement for the Mustang's 50th Anniversary. Wild About Cars and No Limits Magazine are excellent media partner for these plans. We are pleased to assist Ford Motor Company with our "Countdown to the 50th Series."
