Back in the '60s, Ford engineers and designers came up with a novel idea: taking the mechanical bits of the North American spec Ford Falcon and giving it some stylish new clothes. What they gave birth to was the 1964.5 Ford Mustang, and it proved to be a hit. In the first 18 months of production, Ford sold its millionth Mustang, a record that has yet to be broken by any sports car.
Nowadays, records are set on social media sites, where Ford continues to dominate, with the Mustang being the most popular sports car on Facebook with over 3.6-million "Likes."
