Auto club in Hershey applauds Mustang designer

The Antique Automotive Club of America applauded the maker of one of America's classic sports cars, the Ford Mustang.

Gale Halderman says his design came from an assignment in the early 1960s to design a new sports car costing less than $2,500 and weighing less than 2,500 pounds.

Today the mustang is still trotting in the Ford lineup, even as the company plans to focus on trucks and SUVs in the days ahead.
