A one-of-a-kind 2012 Mustang Boss 302 Laguna Seca - Muscle Cars BlogDEARBORN, Mich., Oct. 13, 2011 – When Ford Designer Melvin Betancourt created a one-of-a-kind 2012 Mustang Boss 302 Laguna Seca for auction at an upcoming charity event to benefit cardiovascular care, research and education at Henry Ford Health System, he says it was a labor of love that came straight from the heart.

Betancourt, 49, suffered a serious heart problem 11 years ago, and he credits the doctors at Henry Ford with saving his life.

If left undetected, aortic dissections can lead to sudden death. Read more!
