Ford Mustangs

The first Ford Mustangs were introduced on April 17, 1964, causing a problem for the observers of the car industry: what was its model year? At that time, all car models for the year were introduced at once, with great fanfare, in October of the prior year; all the 1964 cars had been introduced six months earlier and the 1965 models would be introduced six months later. Obviously, these Mustangs were 1964 ½ models. But try explaining that to people who are used to car introductions being scattered throughout the year, with substantially less fanfare - it makes no sense to them.
