We Drive the New Mustang and Come Away Impressed
Step By StepView Photo Gallery
What an invitation to receive from Ford Motor Company. Come join us in beautiful northern Michigan for a '99 Mustang ride and drive--more than 300 miles of twisty roads and hairpin turns, interstate highway, through the woods, along the coast of Lake Michigan, stop-and-go traffic, heavy rain--every driving condition possible in northern Michigan in October.
Our French-built, high-wing American Eagle ATR-72 twin turboprop barked the main landing gear tires on touchdown at Traverse City, Michigan, trumpeting our arrival after a bumpy ride from Chicago aboard a 767. Just outside baggage claim in the rain was a lineup of '99 Mustangs in every color imaginable. It was a good-looking crop of early production fillies: hardtops, convertibles, V-6s, and V-8s.
