A shiny piece of history from Bakersfield, CA Mesa Marin Raceway.
1995 Ford Mustang GT 5.0 convertible Official Pace Car.
Only 116,000-ish miles
I love driving her around town, I get a smile and a wave from many Mesa Marin race fans. The raceway opened in 1977 and was very popular. It was built on the east side of Bakersfield about 5 miles out of town.
Due to growth of Bakersfield, on October 16, 2005 Mesa Marin was permanently closed. Sadly, the raceway was completely removed. Many people stop me and share stories of growing up in Bakersfield and frequenting Mesa Marin. Some told me of remembering the night this Pace Car was given away in a raffle. I actually spoke with the man that won that raffle. It was a grand memory about he and his late wife winning the car.
This Mustang convertible is one of the last remaining gems from our Mesa Marin Raceway. Contact me if you'd like to get more info.
