What could possibly "top" a world's fair intro? How about putting a new Mustang on top of the world's tallest building? Interesting, but how to do it? Have a helicopter drop it onto the observation deck? No, not enough room to manoeuvre and the winds would make it way too risky. What to do? Well, there are elevators.......
......sure that makes sense, if the Mustang were much smaller, like say, one third of its size. Idea!!! Let's cut it into three pieces and reassemble it again on the observation deck. Problem solved. But how do we cut
|Cut up Mustang in the Engineering Dept|
|Test fitting the sections|
......and just think of all the great publicity. Well, I'm an avid car guy and I don't remember Ford doing this (for what it's worth). But this sure makes for some great shots - wonder where the colour film was?
Now back to that wrapped 2015 Mustang at the beginning of this blog. Ford figures if this stunt worked once, 50 years later it can work again. So back to the engineers and have them once again strategically cut up a Mustang. Little bit harder this time, as the car is bigger, but time and money can solve any problem.
And maybe the pics will be in colour this time around.
Update: April 16th........
Yeaaaa! It is in colour and what a back drop.
Until next time.......
