Pony cars lurking in the lush gardens of the Arboretum

First it was Shelby Cobras in “Serpents in the Garden,” then came vintage European roadsters in “Spyders in the Garden.” This year, the Los Angeles County Arboretum and Botanical Garden in Arcadia, California let the original pony car run wild as it celebrated 50 years of the iconic Ford Mustang. On Saturday, October 4, 2014, it was “Mustangs in the Garden.” These wild creatures were on prominent display throughout the natural habitat of the lush Arboretum. As in previous years, the cars were hidden in various parts of the beautiful grounds of the Arboretum. Each turn of the corner was met with a greeting from another Mustang. “Kids partook in a car-themed scavenger hunt, and a photo opportunity behind the wheel of a miniature car,” said the Arboretum’s Brittany Febeck. “And, of course, the owners of the Mustangs were close by to share their car’s history to the car fans.” For more information about the Arboretum, call (626) 821-3222 or visit arboretum.org.
