We bring out Mustangs from all six generations. — Mark Schaller, Ford

For the past 19 years Ford has staked its claim amongst that crowd with a special display in Ferndale, Michigan, called Mustang Alley.

“We bring out Mustangs from all six generations,” Mark Schaller, Mustang Marketing Manager at Ford Motor Company, said.“We are really excited that we had over 800 cars pre-registered to show up.

Among the highlights of this year’s events was the presence of the 2018 Mustang, including one turned on its side to show off its underpinnings and a Shelby Snake Pit that gathered some of Carroll’s creations.

“This year we are celebrating the new 2018 Mustang…” Mark added. “But it’s not just about the ’18, you are going to see every single generation represented this year at Mustang Alley.

We couldn’t make it this year, but thankfully, Ford Performance put together some videos that capture the spirit of Mustang Alley.
