My Kind of History Lesson – the Evolution of the Ford Mustang
Donut Media recently released a new addition to its series of videos on iconic cars. Speaking of iconic, few other cars are more iconic than the subject of this most recent video—the Ford Mustang.
The Mustang premiered at the World’s Fair in 1917. True to its name, the Mustang was sleek and curvy, with an aggressive stance that set it up as a popular muscle car. Donut Media’s video follows the Mustang through its many iterations, from the classic convertible in 1964, to the Shelby GT 350 in 1965. The video also shows the star of one of, if not the most famous car chase scenes in cinematic history, the 1968 fastback driven by Steve McQueen in the movie “Bullitt.” Donut Media continues the trek through the past, displaying each car in the line all the way up to the 2018 Mustang GT.
The great thing about Donut Media’s videos is their simplicity. The renderings of the cars are clean and attractive, and show well the evolution of the designs with quick blends. It’s also nice to not have to dig through a bunch of superfluous information. Donut Media subscribes to the old “Just the facts” adage, providing just the bare minimum of details, thus allowing the car designs to be the star of the video rather than a mess of factoids and tidbits. Car aficionados—especially fans of the Mustang—will appreciate these great videos.
