Most Mustang buyers are women and these women are very importante as a car-buying group.

In the early days cars were all about men and the car industry is just starting to realize how important women are in this market. Women do drive the cars, and they are making their own choices about color and comfort. Ford wants the Mustang to be especially appealing to women, not just men."

And what better way to appeal to women than by offering them a beauty product that color coordinates with their car.

Mustang customers know style when they see it, and now they can take their pony car coolness with them everywhere they go. The women who are doing their nails and the OPI brand say Mustang all the way and set new standards for muscle-car style.

Each bottle of nail polish will feature Mustang's trademark "galloping horse" logo on the bottle cap. In addition, special print advertisements in popular women's fashion magazines like Elle Girl, Marie Claire and Harper's Bazaar will feature the 2005 Mustang with models wearing the new shades of OPI nail polish.

The Mustang has been influencing American style since its introduction in 1965. The all-new 2005 Mustang is once again becoming part of today's pop culture by inspiring toy manufacturers, video game designers and fashion designers to create one-of-a-kind Mustang collectibles.

Ford recently announced that it will increase production of the hot new Mustang to more than 192,000 units in 2005. That's 80,000 more than were produced in 2004.

OPI's Ford Mustang Nail Lacquers will be available beginning June 1, 2005, at salons including Regis, JCPenney, Trade Secret and ULTA. The bottles will sell for a suggested retail price of $7.50 each ($12.50 Canadian).
