At the SEMA Show in Las Vegas, Scott Drake and his crew were dressed in 1960s hippy regalia as they unveiled their 50th Anniversary Tribute, a '64 1/2 Mustang convertible that was restored by Mustangs of East Texas. The car will tour the country in 2014 before being auctioned off in January 2015 with all proceeds going to the National Down Syndrome Society, an organization that has assisted Drake's son Troy, who was born with Down's Syndrome.
Drake provided the car and all parts needed for the restoration. Club members from Mustangs of East Texas, a Mustang Club of America regional group, handled the complete concours-style restoration with body and paint work by Eddie Siler.
In a press release, the NDSS said, "We're thrilled to be selected as the charity partner for Drake's 50th Anniversary Tribute and commend the Drake family on their thoughtful and creative fundraising idea."
