Being my travels down those great two lane highways of this nation as well as news I learn about them from media sources. Since I'm also very interested in historic preservation, there will be a lot of that as well.

Ford Mustang's 50th Anniversary-- Part 3: "Mustang Sally," Thanks Wicked Pickett
TO THE TOP OF THE EMPIRE STATE BUILDING-- A Mustang convertible rode the elevator to the top of New York City's Empire State Building. But not in one piece. It was cut into four sections and reassembled for display on the 86th-floor observation deck in 1965. Wondering if they were able to put it back together after that? All the king's horses and all the king's men. //// JAY LENO-- The newly retired "Tonight Show" host owns several Mustangs, including a 1965 Shelby GT350. Must be nice to be rich. Now he has time to drive 'em. //// "MUSTANG SALLY"-- "All you wanna do is ride around, Sally," sanf the Wicked Wilson Pickett in his 1965 hit, "Mustang Sally." One of my all-time favorite songs. I also liked the Commitments version of it. //// 2014 MUSTANG-- A 2014 Mustand V6 premium convertible costs $31,610-- no extra charge for all-time favorite color red. //// "Ride, Sally, Ride." --RoadDog
