The 90s are back with a vengeance. From fashion trends to nostalgic sitcom reboots, the Gen Y crowd is seeing reminders of their childhood around every corner. So it’s no surprise that the automotive industry is jumping aboard the grunge-era resurgence. Ford announced today that they’re introducing a 1990s-style Ice White Mustang.
Back in 1993, Ford made 1,500 Triple White Mustangs. And these sleek new additions are throwbacks to those limited edition beauties.
Ford enthusiasts can choose from a Mustang coupe or a Mach-E, which is actually an SUV.
The 1993 Triple White Fox Body Mustang lent inspiration to the coupe. It comes as a turbocharged four-cylinder EcoBoost Premium or a 5.0-liter GT Premium. The latter comes with Oxford White paint and white cabin details, and the wheels are silver with white pockets.
As for the electric Mach-E, it comes in Star White with a Space Grey interior trim with a silver hex pattern.
Future buyers can pre-order the Mach-E SUV this fall. The coupe will be available in early 2022.
Ford Honors WWII Women Airforce Pilots With Custom Mustangs
Ford auctioned one of its custom Mach-E Mustangs to support underserved youth.
In hopes of giving young women a chance to have a career in the aviation industry, Ford sold a Mach-E to the highest bidder and the 2021 Experimental Aircraft Association AirVenture air show.
The all-electric Mustang, which has a range of 270 miles and 346 hp, was valued at $55,330. It sold for $500,000 at the Oshkosh Wisconsin auction on July 29th.
Mustang designer Kristen Keenan revealed that “It was hard not to get a little teary-eyed as we put the finishing touches on this vehicle. I have never worked on a memorial project before. Commemorating this group of women through the vehicle design was an honor.”
The vehicle was decorated with decals and logos dedicated to the Women Airforce Service Pilots. WAFS was formed in 1943 and disbanded only one year later. In 1977, President Jimmy Carter signed H.R. 3277 into law, which recognized WASP service as active duty in the U.S. Armed Forces. Because of that, members gained access to veterans’ benefits.
Ford Hybrid F-150 Saves Wedding From Power Outage
A power outage almost ruined one Michigan couple’s special day. But two Ford engineers save their wedding from a near-certain disaster.
Engineers Harish Thiruvengadam and Swetha Shailendra were guests of a Farmington Hills wedding that was delayed by a power outage. While the party was in full swing, heavy storms hit, and the venue went dark around 10 pm.
After some time passed, guests began to worry that the party was over. But according to an article by Fox News, Thiruvengadam and Shailendra came to the rescue with their F-150. The hybrid can double as a small generator that provides power for up to 32 hours.
