California Highway Patrol San Francisco Area patrol units arrested one driver and cited another in connection with a sideshow on the Bay bridge Sunday afternoon, KTVU reports. CHP monitored a call of 3 vehicles with paper dealer plates; a black Ford Mustang, a white Ford Mustang and a black Chevy Camaro, traveling 80-90 mph westbound on the Bay Bridge. They were reported to be in and out of traffic nearly colliding with other vehicles. Several minutes later it was reported the Mustangs and Camaro had stopped all traffic on the Bay Bridge west of Yerba Buena Island and were doing "donuts" across all lanes. This information was being relayed to CHP dispatch by a private citizen caught in the traffic.
The fourth-generation Ford Mustang suffers a bit from middle-child syndrome. It debuted 23 years ago and spanned a full decade of model years (1994–2004), but it has yet to gain the same regard as other generations of America's pony car. Even so, Ford (and in-house skunkworks SVT) produced some memorable Mustangs over those years, and they offer V-8 power, rear-wheel drive, and muscle-car feel with relatively modern reliability--at a generally affordable price. Those low prices are ready to go up, however. For the most part, special versions of fourth-gen Mustangs seem to have stopped depreciating, and some are now seeing significant value growth.
An original Ford Mustang claimed to be the first hard-top example is coming up for auction. It will go under the hammer at Mecum's Indy 2017 auction in mid-May. This is a 1965 Mustang with VIN ending in 00002, meaning it comes after the 1965 Mustang convertible with VIN ending in 00001 currently sitting in The Henry Ford Museum in Dearborn, Michigan. Both of these were pre-production examples, hence the 1965 model year. The first production examples were famously sold as 1964½ models.

The folks at Hennessey Performance Engineering based in Sealy, Texas have been building fast cars since 1991. They've now unveiled their 10,000th build: the 2019 Hennessey Heritage Edition Ford Mustang. It features Hennessey's HPE800 upgrade designed for the current Mustang GT, but this special edition, limited to just 19 units, also comes with a number of special features. First and foremost, the car dons a unique livery inspired by the design of a 2018 Ford GT Heritage Edition supercar that Hennessey took delivery of earlier this year. Both cars even feature the same "1" racing number donning their flanks.
