Director Tom McComas does a wonderful job of bringing back the past with so much life and energy. The way McComas tells the story is brilliant. I am not surprised people bought a Mustang after seeing this movie. My recommendation to anyone who owns a Ford or a Mustang buy this DVD.
Shows how the Mustang became an icon and does it with flair and showmanship. What a sweet ride down Memory Lane.
