Ford Performance and Roush recently teamed up to create an aircraft-themed Mustang for the 75th anniversary of D-Day. The custom muscle car wears livery that pays tribute to World War II airman Colonel Bud Anderson and his P-51D Mustang fighter airplanes. In addition to the white, green, yellow, and red paint, the P-51D’s nickname “Old Crow” graces the hood of the Mustang. The changes are more than skin deep however, as Roush has fitted the Mustang GT with a Performance TVS R2650 supercharger that squeezes 710 horsepower out the 5.0-liter V-8, a 250-horsepower increase over stock.
The one-off Mustang will be shown July 22-28 at the Experimental Aircraft Association Airventure show in Oshkosh, Wisconsin. The vehicle will then be auctioned off with the proceeds going to EAA’s youth education program.

The company that produced the iconic 2CV is commemorating 100 years of business in its home city of Paris by hosting a three-day event in the “Javel” district where the first Citroën was unveiled on June 4, 1919. The centennial celebration will involve transforming Rue Linois into “Citroën Street,” a display of more than 100 Citroëns, owned both by the automaker and by private parties.
The event will be designed as a timeline of Citroën history, starting with the 100-year-old Type A 10 HP and ending with the futuristic 19_19 concept. The cars will be on display June 14-16 in Paris, France.
