It's Mustang Girl Monday brought to you by Team Mustang Girls, and this week we would like to introduce Jessica Spears and her soon to be rolling again 1992 Fox.

Jessica's passion started at a young age. She tells us, "My first memory of a Mustang goes back to when I was 11 or 12 and my cousin had a 1994 Mustang. She would take me everywhere in that car. My love for them only grew when my dad picked me up from marching band practice. I was a Freshman in high school and he showed up in his friend's 1967 Moss Green Mustang coupe. It was at that moment that I knew I wanted a Mustang."

Jessica quickly turned the desire for a Mustang into reality. "On New Year's Eve of that very same year I purchased my 1992 Fox body convertible (Ruby as I call her) with only 21,000 iles on her little 2.3 liter engine. I learned how to drive in Ruby, got my license, my first flat tire, and also my first wreck (Ruby survived thank God!). I also made sure I had a few of my senior pictures taken with her. I drove the wheels off her; rain, sleet, snow, it didn't matter, I drove her everywhere."

But it's not fun unless you upgrade, right? "Ruby was my daily driver up until two years ago when I decided that it was time to give her a makeover and upgrade to a V8. So I began my research on motors and building them. I bought a random 5.0 off of craigslist for $50 just to start with but I was amazed at how fresh it was when I opened it up. And that was the beginning of my engine building! I now have the engine completely built which I could not have done without my dad guiding me with a few pointers here and there as I was assembling it."

Jessica adds "I have so much planned for Ruby; this is only the beginning. It's been 15 years since I purchased this car and it still blows my mind and makes me anxious all at the same time for what's ahead in this little build of mine!"
