American Classic

Artist: Linda Dixon

Sponsor: Sonic Drive-In (No longer available)

Date: 2007

This design was hammered out between John Winterringer and Linda Dixon. It was important to John to feature Sonic imagery as the main element. He was also interested in the evolution of the Sonic Drive in. However Dixon struggled to find an artistic way to present this and pitched the idea of using the Ford Mustang to link the drive-in to the horse theme. Dixon believes that she  depicted classic mustangs at the original Sonic juxtaposed with contemporary mustangs at the newest Sonic. The concept is meant to convey two American classics, the Sonic Drive in and the Mustang.
