Mustang Girl Monday: Stephani Walker and her Mustang Obsession
Brought to you by Team Mustang Girls
It's Mustang Girl Monday brought to you by Team Mustang Girls. This week we would like to introduce Stephani Walker who we had the pleasure of meeting last month at Ponies in the Smokies, where she captured some amazing shots of our very own Project Road Warrior.
Stephani has been a fan of cars since a young age. She tells us, "My parents had new cars every six months from Jeeps to Mustangs to Porsche and even a DeLorean. The passion for Mustangs didn't really kick in until after high school when my high school sweetheart got his hands on a 1999 SVT Cobra. The original paint was Rio Red but the previous owner changed it to Chromalusion, similar to Chameleon but it contained more colors.
I always had a camera in hand growing up whether it be a disposable, video, or point and shoot. Both the camera and car combined became an obsessional task for me. I was determined to capture the colors in full, Chromalusion is one of the hardest colors to capture. My photography passion soon turned into a business when I had captured the attention from car enthusiasts and so I ended up choosing "Chromalusion" as my business name. Since then I've photographed and film almost anything and everything and have been published and had clients such as Vaughn Gittin Jr, Chris Hamilton, aka BoostedGT, and more."
Not only did a Mustang help lead to her career it also helped get Stephani there each day, "My Mustang ownership started with a white 1995 5.0. The car had exhaust and a few minor mods but was stock for the most part. It was a great car, very loud, very clean and the neighbors hated it! The next one I owned was a 2003 GT, in my favorite color, DSG. I purchased it from a friend in Georgia who built it. Vortech, Welds... yeah, this thing was bad. Even got a little bit of air time for those skinnies at the track too! Later on I let it go to a buyer in Atlanta. People claim to see it at ‘Caffeine and Octane’ once in a while.
The last one I had was a Black 2014 5.0 California Special. It was a clean ride and I loved it. I had big plans for the build which I unfortunately never got around to... I have plans for the next one though. I've always wanted to get a new edge Roush since you don't see them much anymore. I also love the new edge Mach 1. My first obsession was the Terminator when they came out but nowadays it seems like everyone has one. They are still amazing cars but if I build one, I want it to be unique and not ‘just another Mustang. Even the new 5.0 is starting to wear on me. I love the DSG but when black is clean, it's beautiful and whichever one I can find, it'll get the build I've had in my mind forever... just in the hunt for the right 'Stang!"
