Mustangs parade into world record

North Coast auto enthusiasts will get a kick out of this one: The Mount Hood Mustang and Ford Club held a mammoth 50th Anniversary Mustang Parade back in April, trying to get into the Guinness Book of World Records. Two photos of the parade are shown.

“There were two records broken that day!” Ann Clack, the group’s secretary wrote. “The most Fords in a Parade numbered 829, and the Most Ford Mustangs in a Parade numbered 766. There were strict rules and criteria that had to be met by the Guinness committee, so every participant didn’t actually qualify to be counted in the official number.” 

“That being said,” she added, “there were well over 910 that were present, and participated to some degree. Truly a once in a lifetime experience.”
