An American classic is celebrating its 50th anniversary, the Ford Mustang first went on sale in 1964 and was an instant hit. 

The fast and stylish roadster cruised into 1960's pop culture, and inspired incurable car-lust in millions of red-blooded males.

Hundreds of aficionados have set off from Los Angeles for the Mustangs Across America Tour, to pay their respects to a car that still symbolises the American Dream.
