We're a full 96 days away from the reveal of the 2010 Ford Mustang, but Ford has already started the countdown clock at their preview site. It's a fairly standard ploy to build buzz, albeit taken to the extreme. Speaking of textbook buzz-making ploys, Ford is offering a new 2010 Mustang to whomever can come up with a great "Mustang Story" that doesn't involve buying a 2009 Mustang only to have the 2010 model come out a few weeks later. Full details in the release to enthusiasts below the jump.

Mustang enthusiasts,

The time has come to start talking about the new Mustang. But, we're not the ones that will be doing the talking!

We want to hear your stories, because we all have a story to tell about Mustang. What is yours?

Today, we launched www.the2010mustang.com which will be the home for the official countdown until reveal of the 2010 Mustang. We wanted to give you a first look at the website to help spread the news to Mustang Nation and the millions of enthusiasts that are waiting on the edge of their seats for any news about the new pony car.

The "Mustang Stories" contest begins on August 27th, so for now you just get a teaser of what's to come, but use the time wisely to think about your favorite Mustang story and be sure to come back and submit it for a chance to win your own 2010 Mustang.

Don't forget to also keep up-to-date on the latest Mustang news, including racing results, at: http://ford.digitalsnippets.com/mustang/

Please let me know if you have any questions. Thanks.
