Its time again for the intersection of 9 Mile Road and Woodward Avenue in Ferndale, Michigan to be transformed into Ford Motor Company’s Mustang Alley, an annual free attraction, run by more than 300 Ford volunteers during the Woodward Dream Cruise.

Mustang Alley and all the scheduled events are set for Saturday, Aug. 18th no matter the weather conditions.  This famous destination will feature more than 800 classic and modern Mustang models from 1964 through the present day, a 20th Anniversary display of Special Vehicle Team (SVT) vehicles, a celebrity appearance by Vaughn Gittin Jr., Ford professional drivers in a “Burn out Box” and finally, a chance to win a rare 2013 Mustang Boss 302 Laguna Seca for a mere $10.
