A proposed museum for the Ford Mustang has been slowed by the high cost of real estate and construction.
Supporters of the project are refocusing their search for a location at an existing museum or theme park.
When the Mustang museum project was launched in 1997, supporters hoped to erect a 100,000-square-foot building in Orlando, Fla., or Atlanta.
But the $30 million price tag proved too steep for the volunteer fund raisers, said Mustang Museum spokesman Michael Garlick. Ford Motor Co. says it is sticking to its pledge to contribute $1.5 million to a museum effort.
The museum's board of directors is considering alternatives, such as adding a Mustang collection to an existing automotive museum or to an amusement park. No specific sites have been named.
