But in Prescott, Arizona, there was a different kind of pony show today, named for a different kind of racer.
It was the annual gathering of the Ford Mustang automobiles.
They gathered, aptly, in the parking lot of the local In 'n' Out Burger. The classic Ford automobiles were present in every color under the sun. Even pink.
That car is owned by a lady. If the color didn't clue you in, what she had under the hood would have.
Another car owner brought a little bit of automotive history to his car.
Other owners just relied on displaying good old muscle power under their hoods.
With a little help from the logo of the car.
The classic Mustang steering wheel looks kind of fragile by today's heavily padded standards.
There were also some Shelby Cobras on display.
Though this one with the classic lines wasn't one of the authentic originals, one car owner told me. It was being offered for sale for around $35,000. He said if it was an original the price would be more like $500,000!
The owner of this black beauty said it had been rebuilt to Cobra standards.
What I found amusing about it was what was stated on the placard in front of it.
