Mike Mueller is an automotive expert among automotive experts. A journalist for more than 30 years, he has written and provided accompanying photography for more than 30 books on the Ford Mustang.
He’s contributed images to many additional books and he’s written for many prestigious industry publications.
Mueller is my guest this week on episode No. 218 of The Weekly Driver Podcast.
Co-host Bruce Aldrich is on vacation, so Mueller and I discuss his latest and just-released updated and revised book, The Complete Book of Ford Mustang.
Table of Contents
Ford Mustang: A nearly 60-year icon
It’s a coffee table-sized volume with more than 550 color photographs and complementary text included in 320 pages.
Created in cooperation with Ford and providing extensive details, specifications and photographic coverage, the book is the “ultimate resource on America’s best-loved pony car.”
According to the book’s marketing materials, the Ford Mustang is the only vehicle that deserves the title “pony car.”
Ford Mustang: Original Pony Car
“From the first six-cylinder Mustang of 1964 1/2 through the fire-breathing, world-beating Boss and Shelby versions of the 1960s and early ’70s, to today’s Mustang Mach 1 and Shelby GT500, the Complete Book of Ford Mustang offers an in-depth look at prototypes and experimental models, the anniversary and pace cars and the specialty packages for street and competition driving that have made the Mustang an automotive legend for nearly 60 years.”
Please join me for an upbeat 30-minute podcast with Mueller about the Ford Mustang and his long career as an automotive journalist.
