From an interview the Ford Performance Group did with Jimmy Howard recently. You can also find a stash of their photos here.
FPG: “Can you tell us what the inspiration was behind the mask’s design? Obviously it has a lot to do with cars and the Motor City, but is there anything in particular you can share with Mustang fans
JH: “I wanted to capture the city spirit and the auto industry being such a big deal here, so I wanted the design to involve that. And when I saw the movie ‘Gone in 60 Seconds,’ I fell in love with the ‘Eleanor’ Shelby Mustang, so I wanted to put that on the mask as a symbol of the Motor City.”
FPG: “So if you were playing for another team in another city, does that mean you probably wouldn’t put a Mustang on your mask?”
JH: “You know what, probably not (laughing), but I really think the car is sharp, so when I had a chance to be here and play in the Motor City, I’m proud to put a Shelby Mustang on it.”
