MCA Official Pony Drive
Yes, there will be an MCA 'official' pony drive that will originate out west and then go to Norman, OK for the official kick off of the Mustang's 50th birthday celebration. The pony drive will then take I-40 west to Vegas for a leisurely 3 day drive with stop overs in some really great cities. More official information will be forthcoming once all the routes have been finalized, etc. The pony drive's for the 50th (to Charlotte and Vegas) are the only OFFICIAL MCA pony drives.

Check out the website for the Great American Pony Drive. They have a listing for the 50th with tentative drive information. At last check please plan for about two weeks to drive to Las Vegas from Los Angeles.
They are making a tour run through the southwest..taking a week to get to Mustang OK. You then have the party for 3 days in Mustang and then back to Las Vegas via Rte 66. Should be a great 2 week rolling party.

50th Pony Drive
Plans are almost finalized for the MCA Pony Drive for the 50th, but please note that on the route from Norman to Vegas they will not be driving Route 66. The drive will be on I-40 with some planned side runs onto Route 66 and then back onto I-40. There will be three stops in three cities for overnight stays along with some evening events such as group dinners at landmark facilities, cruise in's, Ford dealer sponsored lunches and breakfast's, etc. A lot of this will depend on the weather and of course any traffic related issues, etc.

The MCA pony drives are designed to keep the distance from city to city below 400 miles a day, along with gas stops, lunches, etc. so timing will be a factor as when the convoys approach the over night cities, local law enforcement will assist in getting the convoys safely into the cluster of host hotels AND the local TV stations would like to see the convoys come in before their 6pm news so they can possibly do a live report.
Lots of great things will be forthcoming so stay tuned for the official announcement.
