Donald N. Frey, the engineer who led the team that gave us the first Ford Mustang, passed away today March 5th. He was 86 years old.

Working with Ford's general manager in 1962, Lee Iacocca, Frey and his team developed the two-seater prototype that evolved into the Mustang two years later. Sad to think that so many of the great engineers and designers of that era are no longer with us.
