Mustangs Across America Caravan To Stop in Dallas

MAA mapSince it’s introduction on April 17th, 1964, the Mustang has had an interesting history as it gained status as one of the most iconic cars in American history.

Mustang fanatics know this better than anyone, and many of them are teaming up to give the Mustang a proper birthday celebration. In fact, members of Mustangs Across America (MAA) are organizing a massive cross-country caravan to create one of the largest automotive celebrations that this country has ever seen.

Most importantly, they have included Dallas as one of their stops on April 13th/14th (see full schedule below). During the week leading up to the big birthday celebration, over 500 Mustangs will make the journey from Corona, California all the way to the Mustang Club’s 50th Birthday Celebration at Charlotte Motor Speedway in Charlotte, North Carolina.

The seven-day trip will begin at the home of famed car  builder Steve Saleen and will stop in several American cities before reaching it’s final destination. Here’s a brief look at the Drive Schedule:

Day 1: April 10, 2014: Los Angeles, CA to Phoenix, AZ via I-10, lunch stop in Blythe, CA

Day 2: April 11, 2014: Phoenix, AZ to Las Cruces, NM via I-10, lunch stop in Wilcox, AZ

Day 3: April 12, 2014: Las Cruces, NM to Midland, TX via I-10 and I-20, stops in Van Horn, TX and Pecos, TX

Day 4: April 13, 2014: Midland, TX to Dallas, TX via I-20, lunch stop in Abilene, TX

Day 5 – April 14, 2014: Dallas, TX to Jackson, MS via I-20, lunch top in Bossier City, LA

Day 6 – April 15, 2014: Jackson, MS to Atlanta, GA via I-20/Loop285, lunch stop in Tuscaloosa, AL

Day 7 – April 16, 2014:
 Atlanta, GA to Charlotte, NC via I-85, lunch stop in Greenville, SC

Take note of the event’s time in Texas. The caravan will be rolling into Dallas on April 13th, which could provide quite the site to see has over 500 Mustangs will be in attendance. Such an event holds historical significance for MAA, who has grown the event from about 200 participants to over 500 in just a mere 20 years. “Mustangs Across America has always been the ‘Drive Of A Lifetime’. We are proud to continue to carry that mantle”, says event coordinator Sam Haymart. “This event is the big one for the 50th and our plans will reflect the moment in history as we pull out all the stops.”

Prestige Ford Sponsors Box Truck Donations

truck giveaway2Today, Randall Reed, owner of Randall Reed’s Prestige Ford and Justin Wright, General Manager/Operating Partner, were proud to be part of an amazing community contribution presentation from SpringCreek Church in Garland. The church worked in tandem with the community and local businesses to raise funds for two much-needed 2013 Ford E-350 14-foot box trucks  for New Beginning Center and Good Samaritans of Garland.

The New Beginning Center, which helps victims of domestic violence and the Good Samaritans of Garland took place at Randall Reed’s Prestige Ford in Garland. This project began as an identified need within the local community for transportation needed by the two non-profit organization. So, Pastor Keith Stewart and Pastor Wes Helm and the Springcreek Church membership body led the way to begin raising funds.

At the same time, the organizations reached out to Katie Koberg, Community Relations at Randall Reed’s Prestige Ford (serving the greater Dallas area), who had sponsored past events for both charities. Prestige Ford was able to locate two new 14-foot box trucks for the project. A wrap and magnets were created for the box trucks to help spread the word about the organizations as they drove around town helping those in need.

“Serving in our community provides valuable networks for businesses, non-profits and individuals to connect,” said Mr. Reed. “If it is serving our non-profits, supporting our local police and fire departments, or working within our school districts, the American dream is accomplished by many more if we choose to work together. I am proud of our community, my staff, and loyalty of our customers.”

For the non-profits, the box trucks are more than a mode of transportation; the trucks serve is a lifeline for their charity and its clients.

truck giveaway1“Our ability to pick up food for the nearly 400 families each month we feed every week was a great struggle as we had a simple truck to make the pick ups from the local donation locations. With the new truck, we are better prepared, and more able to serve the hungry in our community,” said Jim Griffin, Executive Director of the Garland Good Samaritans.

“We serve families affected by domestic violence through education, prevention and intervention services and programs. With this truck we are able to do things more efficiently, it allows us to pick up food donations for our shelter and our food pantry, pick up large donations for our re-sale store, and also help our clients relocated to a safer place to live. This gift has a tremendous ripple effect across Garland and the DFW,” said Cindy Turek, CEO of the New Beginning Center.

Both organizations are always looking for additional support and donations so they can continue to help those in our community. “Everybody has gift,” said Mr. Griffin. “We want you to use those gift to help us and others in Garland who are in need.”If you would like to make a food donation to the Good Samaritans, Mr. Griffin says, “We invite you to bring your donations to 214 N. 12th Street at the big white painted sign.” Mr. Griffin points out the painted sign was thanks to the gifts of I am Second Garland High School Students.

Ford to Put 2015 Mustang on Empire State Building

Mustang Empire StateNext month, Ford is ecstatic to be celebrating half a century of Mustang manufacturing by once again bringing the famous American muscle icon to the top of another famed American Icon, The Empire State Building. After achieving the such a task 50 years ago, Ford is at it again with this unique stunt using their all-new 2015 Mustang.

Since it’s introduction and subsequent Empire State visit in 1964, the Mustang has been a world-wide representation of true American muscle. Ford revealed the original Mustang in New York City, and the company is thrilled to bring it back to the Big Apple for a nostalgic trip to one of the world’s famous buildings. “New York is one of the greatest cities in the world, and it’s the place where the Ford Mustang story began 50 years ago,” said Mark Fields, Ford chief operating officer. “We’re thrilled to be visiting the architectural landmark that has been the heart of the Manhattan skyline for 83 years with the newest generation of the car that is the soul of Ford Motor Company.”

Screen Shot 2014-03-26 at 12.59.55 PMDespite a ton of technological improvements, getting a enormous hunk of American muscle to the observatory deck of an 86-story building in the middle of a crowded city is not exactly simple. Ford staff will seek to complete their goal the same way they did 50 years ago by dismantling the car to pieces that will fit in the elevator, then putting it back together on the top deck.

If you have plans to visit NYC in the near future, you should check out the all-new 2015 Mustang atop the Empire State Building on April 16 and 17th from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. Be on the hunt for the 2015 Mustang at Prestige Ford in Garland (also serving Rockwall, Mesquite, Richardson, and Dallas) later in 2014. Feel free to check out our current selection anytime, anywhere by visiting www.PrestigeGarland.com!
