Even though the company didn't have any major new products to announce, Ford  had very big presence at last month's New York International Auto Show.

We -- The Motley Fool's John Rosevear and Rex Moore -- were there, and we brought you extensive coverage of all of the show's highlights. Many of those involved Ford: We've shown you excerpts from Chief Operating Officer Mark Fields' keynote speech, the four-door version of the refreshed-for-2015 Focus compact, and the special 50th anniversary edition of Ford's all-new Mustang -- as well as Ford's epic stunt involving a new Mustang and the Empire State Building.

We also had the opportunity to interview Fields, who talked about the Mustang and about Ford's ongoing turnaround effort in EuropeHis comments take on added significance now that Fields has been tapped to replace retiring CEO Alan Mulally in July.

But in going through our vast video haul from New York, we've found a few other things that might be of interest to Fool readers, including some footage of Ford's press event on the first day of the show, where Fields was master of ceremonies.

Fields began the proceedings by presenting the new Focus sedan, and then he moved on to the big crowd-pleaser: a presentation on what he called "the heart and soul of the Ford brand," the Mustang. In this video, you'll see Fields talk about the history of the Mustang, its original unveiling in 1964, and about why Ford has decided to make the all-new 2015 Mustang a global model that will be sold all over the world. At the very end, you'll see (and hear) the unveiling of that special 50th anniversary edition of the Mustang.

It's definitely worth a look, not only to see what it's like when an automaker presents a new model, but also to hear Ford's incoming CEO give his thoughts on the iconic Mustang. Check it out, then scroll down to leave a comment with your thoughts.

Are you ready to profit from this $14.4 trillion revolution?
Let's face it, every investor wants to get in on revolutionary ideas before they hit it big. Like buying PC-maker Dell in the late 1980s, before the consumer computing boom. Or purchasing stock in e-commerce pioneer in the late 1990s, when it was nothing more than an upstart online bookstore. The problem is, most investors don't understand the key to investing in hyper-growth markets. The real trick is to find a small-cap "pure-play" and then watch as it grows in EXPLOSIVE lockstep with its industry. Our expert team of equity analysts has identified one stock that's poised to produce rocket-ship returns with the next $14.4 TRILLION industry.
