On the third Saturday in August, Detroit comes alive as millions descend upon Woodward Avenue for the annual Dream Cruise that celebrates America's motoring heritage. From the Fairgrounds at 8 Mile to the Loop up at Pontiac, the famous 16- mile thoroughfare is lined with cars and trucks of all shapes and sizes. If there is one car event you should attend during your lifetime, this is it. Down at the intersection of 9 Mile Road and Woodward in the city of Ferndale, is Mustang Alley; where Ford pony cars of all shapes and sizes take center stage.
This year's event, which takes place on Saturday, August 18, is expected to be one of the largest ever gatherings of Mustangs, with over 700 slated to attend. And to celebrate the occasion, Ford Motor Company is producing a one-off "Mustang Alley" Boss 302 Laguna Seca.
The car in question; which, recently rolled off the assembly line at the Auto Alliance plant in Flat Rock, Michigan; sports unique Sterling Gray Metallic paint (not offered on the Boss 302 from the factory), special 19-inch wheels and gloss instead of satin black Boss graphics.
Purchased from Ford by the National Multiple Sclerosis Society, the unique Boss will be auctioned off at Mustang Alley this August, with all proceeds going to charity. The lucky winner of the Boss will also receive a coupon from Ford Racing for TrackKey, turning the potent pony into a full, competition ready track machine.
In order to stand a chance of winning this unique 2013 Boss, you'll need to purchase tickets (prices are $10 for one, $20 for three). For more information and how to get tickes, click on the official Mustang Alley link below.
