If consumers looking for used cars in New Jersey had turned on golfing’s U.S. Open on June 22, they may not have realized that they missed out on a chance to see racing star Danica Patrick in a used Ford Mustang.
Patrick was driving the car in a spot for Godaddy.com, and the web hosting provider says that a disagreement with either event sponsor Lexus or NBC kept the ad with the classic Mustang off of the program.
“It is beyond my wildest dreams that one of our commercials would be rejected only because it featured a classic American automobile,” said Bob Parsons, GoDaddy CEO and founder.
For those looking at used Ford Mustangs in New Jersey, models in the latest generation could offer a similar look to the muscle car driven by Danica in the ad, without the price of a collector vehicle or restoring a 1960s model.
The newer models take their design cues from the heyday of the Mustang in the late 1960s, and the 2006 model offers “compelling performance,” according to Edmunds.com editors.
