Mustangs Invade East Texas

Many of you may have seen them today, East Texas was invaded by a herd of mustangs. Of course, they were Ford Mustangs; 280 of them to be exact. It was part of The Great American Pony Drive, a seven-week tour of the United States by Mustang enthusiasts from around the world. The group made a stop for lunch this afternoon at the Rose Garden in Tyler.

"I've never experienced anything like this before and I probably won't again," said Barry Featherston, a Mustang owner who came all the way from New Zealand. "And, by the time I end the trip, I'm going right through to Washington D.C., and I think by the time I finish there, I'll go with memories that I'll never, ever forget."

The group is caravanning to Dallas from Nashville, Tennessee, the site of the Mustang's 40th anniversary celebration.
