(1 photo of a 1968 Other ) Okay this had nothing to do with Ford Mustangs, but I found it next to the Golden Nugget Special ad from The Daily Chronicle,February 13, 1968, Centralia, Washington. Twilight Zone, I Love Lucy, Dennis the Menace (not the cartoon version), Gilligan's Island... Wow lots of good classic shows!
(3 photos of a 1968 Mountain Green (Emerald Green) Other ) We think this is a Mountain Green (Mustang Emerald Green) 1968 Rocky Mountain Sportsman's Special Bronco. Little is known about this Ford Truck special model except that it was probably only in the Denver area; included the Bronco, F100 and F250; and came in Boulder Bronze (WT3833), Mountain Green (WT7819), and Sky Blue (WT8816). The reason we have a Bronco on a Mustang site is its color. The color is a match for the 1968, Color of the Month promotion for March commemorating Saint Patrick's Day.
(9 photos of a 1968 Mobil Economy Run Results Advertisement) This is the official results of the 1968 Mobil Economy Run held from April 2nd through April 4th from LA to Indianapolis. The race was to end in New York but was cancelled on April 5th due to civil unrest across the country because of the death of Martin Luther King Jr. on Thursday April 4th. The Mustang came in 5th place in the Class "A" compact six class. This ad was placed in the April 9th edition of the Bakersfield Californian. This race inspired the 1969 Mustang E special edition. In December of 1968, it was announced by Richard F Tucker, vice president of marketing for Mobil in North America, the event will be cancelled in the United States citing "changing advertising patterns and changing emphasis in automotive performance as major factors influencing the decision."

(13 photos of a 2001 Focus Promotional Sales Brochure) The first page of each of the three sections of this sales brochure has a multi-page fold-out image of the car. At the end of this fold out is a description of the car, in this case the 2001 Ford Focus. The text reads, You've got this friend ... always up for anything. The spur of the moment, 2000 mile road-trip kind of friend. And (this is the true test) the kind who'll hang with you on those go-to-the-laundry-mat/grocery store/dentist kind of days. If you had a Focus, you'd know what we're talking about. It's not enough to say it's dependable. It's fun, it's quick. The kind of car that invariably gets a cool nickname. The car that will give you a lump in your throat if you ever have to say goodbye. Even if it's just for the night.
