The Ford Mustang is 50 years old, and the Saratoga Automobile Museum is celebrating the landmark birthday. A new exhibit - "Mustang at 50, An American Icon" - opens to the public on Saturday. It illustrates the evolution of the Mustang and its impact on automotive history, its role in auto racing, and its place in popular culture.

The exhibit features cars from each generation of the Mustang, including examples of the storied muscle cars created by Carroll Shelby's collaboration with Ford.

Also featured are examples of the creative advertising campaign that brought the Mustang to national attention and prominence in the mid-20th century.

Visitors are invited to share their Mustang stories and photos in the "Mustang Memories" section of the exhibit, which will highlight community contributions.
