- Mustang Alley features more than 800 cars
Enthusiasts from around the world are celebrating the 50th consecutive year of Ford Mustang production, at the
intersection of 9 Mile Road and Woodward Avenue in Ferndale, just north of the Detroit city limits. This part of Michigan
(USA) will be known as Mustang Alley this week-end during the annual Woodward Dream Cruise.
Scheduled for Saturday, 17th August, this high-octane destination will highlight 49 years of the world’s favourite
pony car with more than 800 classic and modern Mustang models from 1964 through the present day.
The annual Woodward Dream Cruise is the world’s largest single day classic car event. Over 1 million, perhaps as many
as 1.5 million visitors and 40,000 antique and classic cars from all over North America are expected to visit the Dream
Cruise, which stretches from suburban Detroit north to Pontiac in a American celebration of all things automotive.
The full 2014 Mustang line-up will be on display, including the 662-horsepower Ford Shelby GT500 and the Mustang GT
and V6 coupe with Performance Package.
The SVT display will feature the latest 2014 Shelby GT500, along with the Focus ST and Fiesta ST.
The new 2014 Ford F-150 Tremor sport truck will also be on display. Tremor is the first sport truck powered by the
3.5-litre EcoBoost V6 engine.
Mustang Alley is the place to be for performance enthusiasts building Ford-powered street rods and race cars. Ford
Racing will have a large display of street and strip crate engines on display. A cadre of Ford Racing technicians and
engineers will be on hand to meet with the public and answer detailed technical questions about performance,
installation, tuning and other topics.
Numerous Ford partners have displays at Mustang Alley including:
2007 Ford Mustang GT
- HPI (remote control cars)

- Dembeste (Shelby engine company)
- Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation
- Mustang Club of America
