VIP Weekly Fun Question for December 15, 2012
SUPERSTARS!

With the most recent events at Newtown, CT., I considered not posting questions for this week but decided it might help to have this "diversion" for some of you, so here it is.

During the production of the Ford Mustangs (1965 - 1973), the most consistent of all the data plates/labels utilized were actually on the 1973 Mustangs as there were NO changes made to it during the model year and it was a carryover from 1972.

The problem for this week:

What was the most notable apparent error made on the late 1972/1973 labels?

The First VIP Member to post up with the desired response will be declared the "Winner" and will earn a Nice Icon, bragging rights and the option to develop the next VIP WFQ.

This exercise will terminate at approximately 7:00 PM (CST) on Monday, December 17, 2012.

Good Luck!

The desired response is that ..."the only notable thing about the this late 1972-1973 label was Ford forgot to put a period at the end of the sentence" (THIS VEHICLE CONFORMS TO ALL APPLICABLE FEDERAL MOTOR VEHICLE SAFETY STANDARDS IN EFFECT ON THE DATE OF MANUFACTURE SHOWN ABOVE)
None

Do the RIGHT thing.

The apparent error was the labels didn't say made or manufactured in USA. Just a guess.

Unfortunately, no one posted up with the desired response for this week's question. To repeat the problem:
