The Going Thing
The Cleveland sales district created a regional special promotion edition 1969 Mustang (and Torinos) called The Going Thing. 109 Mustangs had special stripes installed with "The Going Thing" written on the rocker. They were installed on stock Mustangs with all sorts of engine sizes. The stripes were similar to those on factory Ford drag cars. The promotion was kicked off at the Thompson Drag Raceway in Thompson, Ohio.
