Old Crow Mustang GT Build Marks 75th Anniversary of D-Day

Old Crow Mustang

Ford Performance and Mustang have paired up to mark the 75th anniversary of D-Day with the commemorative Old Crow Mustang GT. This one-of-a-kind Mustang pays tribute to the P-51 Mustang fighter plane that flew over the beaches of Normandy during the Allied Invasion in 1944 and the brave men who sacrificed for freedom.

The Old Crow was specifically inspired by Col. Bud Anderson, a flying ace in World War II. Serving on two different combat tours and 116 missions, Col. Bud Anderson flew behind the wheel of a P-51 airplane for it all. Anderson grew to call his P-51 “Old Crow,” so Ford and Roush aimed to design a Mustang that brought back the vibes of the classic airplane.

The badging and paint scheme on the Old Crow will resemble that of the P-51 Mustang that Anderson flew. And while the car might not be able to elicit the true power and thrill of a war plane, it delivers solid performance with a Roush/Ford Performance supercharger that helps deliver more than 700 horsepower.

The Old Crow is set to be auctioned off in Oshkosh, Wisconsin, at “The Gathering,” an auction that occurs every year at the Experimental Aircraft Association’s 2019 AirVenture. All proceeds from the auction will go directly to the Experimental Aircraft Association’s Aviation Foundation, which supports, educates, and encourages future pilots.

While you may not be able to get your hands on the one-of-one Old Crow Mustang GT, you can certainly get your own 2019 Ford Mustang at Robbie Roberson Ford.

How to Keep Your New Year’s Resolution

keep your New Year’s resolution

Every year, millions of American set New Year’s resolutions and then quickly abandon them. If 2019 is going to be your year for success, then you’ll want to follow a few handy tips to help you keep your New Year’s resolution.

Set Small Goals

Setting a goal that seems a million miles away can leave you feeling daunted. Instead, start small. If you want to buy a new car, make a goal to put $50 from each paycheck into a savings account. If you want to eat healthier, replace a sweet treat with a piece of fruit or cup of yogurt and build from there.

Take One Step at a Time

If you try overhauling all of your bad habits at once, you will easily become overwhelmed. Focus on one habit at a time and replace unhealthy behaviors with healthy ones.

Get Support

Talk to your friends and family about your goals. You might find someone with the same or similar goals. You can work together and check on each other’s progress to help you stay focused on your goal.

Forgive Yourself

Just because you make one mistake, that does not mean you have failed. It is normal to have backtracks and missteps while working towards your goal. Brush off your mistakes and focus yourself again.

If one of your resolutions is to get out of your old clunker and into a marvelous new Ford, the team at Robbie Roberson Ford is more than happy to help!
