When Adriana Robledo sent us her entry for the Mustang Girl Monday, she said, “When I was 16, I worked at a pizza place with some friends from high school. As most teens then, we'd get dropped off and picked up due to lack of having our own vehicle. One day my coworker's sister picked him up in the most beautiful car I had ever seen—a classic powder blue Mustang. It was then that I knew what my dream car was. I've loved pony cars since then. At 18, I even had a boyfriend who thought the only reason I began dating him was because of his 96 Mustang GT!”

She continued, “It's been a family love affair since. My brother, also a Mustang lover, that boyfriend, and more of our friends formed their own small car club. The six Mustangs, ranging from 1986 to 1996, would go everywhere together. We'd go to the car shows, including Fabulous Fords Forever at Knott’s Berry Farm in Buena Park (California). One of my favorite memories from those times is meeting Steve Saleen.

“On weekends and days off, extra money was spent at our favorite car spot, GTR High Performance in Rancho Cucamonga. When I say family love affair, I mean it. Countless times I would run into one of my cousins at those shows. One of them owns a 2004 Mach 1 and another is in the process of restoring a 1966 coupe.”

Adriana’s own Mustang? It’s a 1992 Fox-body that she co-owns with her brother. She said, “Mostly, he's the grease and I'm the finance but we have fun working on the weekend car. We still go out to the shows when we can. My ultimate goal is still the classic powder blue 'stang I first fell in love with. I know it's out there, just waiting for me.”
