This Week in Business History for March 8th: Ford Mustangs, Coke in Bottles, & the Burst of the Dot Com Bubble


“Although the world has changed a lot since 1964, the Ford Mustang has been offered every single year. In 2018, Ford crossed the 10 Million Mustang mark. The pony car is truly a design, engineering, marketing, and business development achievement.”
