It's Mustang Girl Monday brought to you by Team Mustang Girls. This week we would like you to meet Clarissa Corona and her 1966 Mustang.

Clarissa first got into Mustangs when she was just 17 years old, saying, "The first Mustang I ever drove was Daniel Castellon's (aka Instagram's Classicstangs) custom red 1966 Mustang. It has a five-speed manual transmission, and for my first time driving a Mustang, I was in complete bliss. My favorite thing to do was to hop in and go for a cruise with the windows down and the music all the way up."

She continues telling us about her first car show: “It was August 2, 2014, I was sitting in a 1966 with Mr. Classicstang to my left, and my mom in the back seat. I was scared and nervous because I didn't know what to expect, but at the same time I was excited because I knew that this was the beginning of something that I wasn't going to let go of easily. After that meet, I knew I had to have a car of some kind, and it took over a year to find anything near my budget, but with the help of Castellon, I made that dream possible. On May 7, 2015 I was able to say that something was officially mine without it being taken away from me. Later on that year, I realized that it was going to be nearly impossible to wait long to get a Mustang and I decided to sell it. On December 16, 2015 I found the car that I fell in love with, a navy blue 1966 inline-six Mustang and realized that I wasn't able to let go of it, so I did everything possible to be able to get it. I have worked on suspension, new tires, brake conversion, and went from a 200 engine block to a 289 V-8, which is why we are currently off the road."

Stay tuned for more updates from Clarissa and her pony. Each week Team Mustang Girls features a different woman in the Mustang community. Check out the previously featured ladies from Mustang Girl Monday and submit your own Mustang story at
