      Bob, I guess you and I must not read the same Mustang books, ha, ha. Everyone I have ever read mentions early on that the original designer of the Mustang named it after the P-51. A quick Google search reveals this: "John Najjar, the original designer of the Mustang I Prototype, is said to have named the vehicle after the legendary P-51 Mustang fighter plane from World War II. Although this is the "official" story, many people believe the Mustang was named after the horse. In fact, Lee Iacocca is said to have stated this several times while discussing the vehicle in interviews. In an interview conducted by Brad Barnett and The Mustang Source in 2004, John Najjar told Barnett he named the car after the airplane. However, his boss at Ford, R. H. Maguire, didn't want an airplane emblem to appear on the car, so they settled on the horse instead." Sounds pretty clear to me why it was named after the airplane, and also why we have the running horse emblem. Take care and drive safe, Craig
