Jon Haber, a member of the Mustang Owners Club of Southeast Michigan, polished his banana yellow 1972 Mustang as foot traffic started to pick up on Saturday. Haber, who has managed to keep the car all original by only taking it on weekends, said he still remembers buying the car brand new.
“I asked one of my daughters to pick out the color and she picked pink” said Haber, 75, of Huntington Woods. “So I said ‘Pick another color and she said yellow, and I said OK.”
Mike Rutka, from Grand Island, N.Y., brought some new-school Mustang flavor into the mix with his 2002 Saleen Mustang — one of such super-charged convertibles. Rutka, who is participating in Mustang Alley for the first time, said the people are what makes the Cruise so special.
“Everybody talking about the cars and where are you from and it just keeps going,” said Rutka, a member of the Western New York Mustang Club. “It’s a dream to be here, and I can say I’ll definitely be back, but I’ll bring the club.”
