Put Put the Pizza Hut

I just found this on the web, I didn’t even know these Mustang Junior cars existed.

“Put Put to the Pizza Hut” was the first national television commercial for Pizza Hut in 1965. It features a 1965 Mustang JR gas powered promotional car Made by the Powercar Company of Mystic CT. These were made with the cooperation of the Ford Motor Company for use in dealer promotions and other uses. Mustang JRs were made in 1965, 1966 and 1967 and changed each year to match the full size cars.”

Enjoy the ad – did people really go to Pizza Hut because of this?

King of the Road

At the end of March Ford announced an exciting teaser related to the 40th anniversary of the 1968 Shelby GT500 KR: a new “King of the Road” to be expected in 2008. You can hear Carroll Shelby talk about the KR, what Ford’s ask was at the time and how they to the name in this video:

It will be an exclusive run of only 1.000 units for the new Shelby Mustang, and I’ll leave it up to other sites to amuse you with the technical details, but here’s what you can expect. I still prefer the classic versions over any new one, but must say this looks very good.
