‘Mr. Rock and Roll,’ who owns a ’69 Mustang Mach 1, gets tempted by the new ‘17



You may not be familiar with Gareth Ainsworth. He's the player-manager for the soccer team the Wycombe Wanderers. He's called a "footballer" across the pond, and is, according to this video quite popular.

What makes him quite popular to us is his choice of cars. The YouTube description say:

Footballer's cars are usually ten-a-penny Mercs, BMWs and Bentleys but Gareth Ainsworth does things differently. The Wycombe Wanderers manager owns a classic 1969 Mustang and might be in the market for the latest model, too...


Not only does he own a Mustang Mach 1, but it's orange. He grabbed it because they call him "Mr. Rock and Roll" - he has his own rock band -- and this car, to him, screams Rock and Roll.

Auto Express tried to tempt Ainsworth with a 2017 Ford Mustang GT, and he was impressed.
