DETAILED PROGRAM EUROPATOUR 2014

A little bit of History:

The first production Mustang rolled off the assembly line in Dearborn, Michigan on March 9, 1964, and was introduced to the public at the New York World’s Fair on April 17, 1964 via all three American television networks on April 19. It made an appearance in the James Bond film Goldfinger in September of 1964. It was one of the most successful product launches in automotive history. The Mustang sold over one million units in its first 18 months on the market. The Mustang remains in production today after many decades and numerous revisions.

In 1990 a handful of Mustang enthusiasts had the great idea to honor the story and life of this mystical car by the foundation of the VINTAGE MUSTANG CLUB OF LUXEMBOURG.

Since day one the club found a lot of interest and the number of members kept on growing on a regular basis.

In 1994, as the celebration of the 30th Anniversary of the Ford Mustang, the club organized the EUROPEAN MUSTANG ANNIVERSARY CONVENTION on the race track in Colmar Berg (Luxembourg) by gathering no less than 225 cars coming from all over Europe to celebrate this event.

In 2004, as the celebration of the 40th Anniversary, a meeting was organized with the Ford Dealership in Grevenmacher (Luxembourg)

with a target of 40 cars only from Luxembourg.

The event was successful and many Mustang aficionados had the possibility of a ride in

the cars on display, this for the benefit of TELEVIE Luxembourg.

All over these many years the VINTAGE MUSTANG CLUB OF LUXEMBOURG attended

meetings all over Europe and shared experiences with members from other country local clubs.

In 2010 the club celebrated its 20th Anniversary with a very well visited and successful 1

week car exhibition in the Mall of the BELLE ETOILE SHOPPING CENTER in Bertrange (Luxembourg).

Today the Luxembourg community of Mustang owners (vintage and modern) has grown to

quite a significant number and the VMCL currently accounts for a nice 60 members.

The event: As in 2014 a very unique Anniversary (50 years of a Legend) lays ahead of us the

VINTAGE MUSTANG CLUB OF LUXEMBOURG has decided to organize an EUROPEAN

MUSTANG ANNIVERSARY AND CHARITY TOUR.

The event will take place from June 7 until June 15, 2014

and tour the participants from Luxembourg, through Belgium, the

Netherlands, Germany, Switzerland, France and will end with a Concours d’Elegance back

again in Luxembourg at NOON ON JUNE 15, 2014 (Casino 2000 in Mondorf-les-Bains).

As the tour will be placed under the wings of charity any benefits generated during the

tour, from car exhibits and other events in the various country locations or any donations,

will be sponsored in favor of Make-A-Wish® Luxembourg, thus allowing them to support

any projects in fulfilling wishes of children with life-threatening medical conditions.

ETTELBRÜCK (L) TO HEUSDEN-ZOLDER (B) 190

SATURDAY 6/7/2014 ETTELBRÜCK (L) TO HEUSDEN-ZOLDER (B) 190

50 Jahre Ford Mustang

Am 9. März 1964 rollte der erste Ford Mustang in Dearborn, Michigan vom Band. Am 17. April 1964 wurde er dem Publikum vorgestellt, am 19. April auf den drei amerikanischen Fernsehkanälen. Das Marketing war so erfolgreich, dass über eine Million Mustangs in den ersten 18 Monaten verkauft wurden. Fünf Jahrzehnte und einige „face-lifts“ später wird der Mustang immer noch produziert.

Im Jahr 1990 gründeten einige Mustang-Fans den „Vintage Mustang Club of Luxembourg“. Zum 50. Geburtstag organisiert der Club eine „European Mustang Anniversary and Charity Tour“. Die Reise startet am 07. Juni 2014 vom Garage Paul Wengler in Ettelbrück aus und führt nach Belgien, Holland, Deutschland, der Schweiz und Frankreich mit Ankunft am 15. Juni 2014 um 12.00 Uhr beim Casino 2000 in Mondorf-les-Bains. Alle Mustang-Besitzer und Fans sind herzlich eingeladen mit uns zu feiern bei live Musik und einem Barbecue. Der Club hofft an diesem Tag möglichst viele Mustangs begrüssen zu können und mit einem Teil vom Erlös der Organisation Make-A-Wish® Luxembourg zu helfen todkranken Kinder einen Wunsch zu erfüllen.
