If you're a pony-car enthusiast, this is your year. Not only has Ford introduced an all-new Mustang, but it's also the 50th anniversary of the original. Celebrations and commemorations have been scheduled throughout the year, and not the least of them is the latest exhibit at the Petersen Automotive Museum in Los Angeles.

Called "Mustangs Forever: 50 Years of a Legend", the exhibit includes Mustangs from every generation of the iconic pony car, including the 1965 convertible Ronald Reagan drove during his California gubernatorial campaign, a 1971 Mach 1 Cobra Jet, a 1974 Mustang II, 1993 SVT Cobra, 2000 Cobra R and a 2006 Shelby GT-H. Special sections focus on motorsports, aftermarket modifiers and limited-edition models.

The display opened on Sunday with the Mustang Madness spectacular and will run for the next six months, but if you're not heading to Southern California within the coming half-year then you can scope out all the action in our live gallery of photos above.

      There you go... Nowhere in sight in this museum do you see the shamelessly appropriated Aston Martin grille which Ford started using recently on all their cars from Fusion to Fiesta so abruptly without showing any real gradual design evolution/development work that should normally last several years. It's like a black person suddenly painting himself with white makeup over one night & next day saying that he had been a white person all along. Shameless indeed...

        To be fair to Ford's use of the elongated hexagonal grille: 1. it isn't really all that much like the Aston Martin grille 2. everybody else used the same hexagonal grille at the same time 3. they used to own Aston Martin 4. black person / white person wtf?

          What a poor & desperate excuse. Obviously you have no idea what is normally considered ethical in the Automotive Design Industry or how designs usually come about. Actually, the design evolution/development into the 'too Aston Martin(ish) grille' should have been AT LEAST a gradual & natural process taking AT LEAST over two generations of cars or more. Ford obviously did not do this(maybe because they were too lazy or just made expedient financial sense to them). No wonder they bought the Aston Martin brand(instead of doing any honest design work) ...so that they & their fans can later make some stupid excuse regarding 'ownership'. Overriding fact is, honest design work should not be done like that, & has not been done like that in the automotive design industry all throughout the 20th century. How shameless. It's as if an insignificant Chinese brand with lots of money suddenly bought BMW... then over night(in just one short generation) their whole lineup of cars take on a different face with the BMW kidney grille on them. Then they make sad excuses & say that they own BMW so it is not a shameless copy... Shame on you Ford.
