Cypress, CA, April 29, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Fast Facts:
- Nitto Tire has created a website www.HappyBirthdayMustang.com to enable fans of the Ford Mustang to share how it has influenced their lives.
- The website enables users to add their video or photos to an animated collage for the world to see.
- Nitto Tire's early success in the U.S. is directly tied to the Ford Mustang and its owners' love of the NT555 performance tire.
The Ford Mustang is one of the most iconic cars in the world and has played a role in the lives of car enthusiasts and non-enthusiasts alike. With 2014 marking the pony car's 50th birthday, Nitto Tire U.S.A. Inc., a leading manufacturer of street performance and off-road tires, has announced the launch of a brand-new website that enables everyone to wish the Mustang a happy birthday and share their own Mustang stories.
There are very few vehicles that have been produced non-stop for 50 years and even fewer that have consistently influenced the lives and culture of so many generations. The Ford Mustang is special in a way that very few cars are. From the moment it was first introduced at the 1964 World's Fair in New York, the Mustang began shaping the lives of everyone who laid eyes on it. Regardless of whether the experience was from behind the wheel, in the passenger seat, or even from idolizing the car on television or in the movies, nearly everyone has a story to share about the Mustang.
With the launch of the new website, HappyBirthdayMustang.com, Nitto Tire has made sharing your Mustang story with the world fun and easy. Share your YouTube videos, upload your Mustang images, or write a personalized birthday message directly from the site. Once submitted, your tale will become part of the living collage on the website, viewable and shareable by anyone who visits. You can also submit content through Twitter and Instagram using the hashtag #Mustang50th. As part of the celebration, Nitto has interviewed dozens of enthusiasts and industry icons and incorporated their stories into the site.
"Nitto's early success is closely tied to the Ford Mustang and its loyal followers," said Stephen Leu, Assistant Manager at Nitto Tire. "We wanted to celebrate that rich history and give Mustang fans a way to share their stories while learning how the Mustang positively influenced our company."
Nitto Tire will also be attending various Ford and Mustang shows around the country this year and will have a video crew on hand to help people share their stories on the site. Look for Nitto and its video crews at the upcoming Mustang Madness show at the Petersen Automotive Museum in Los Angeles on May 3-4, 2014 as well as videos, pictures and stories from the Fabulous Fords Forever show that took place at Knott's Berry Farm in Buena Park, Calif., on April 27, 2014.
