There are some key components to a successful Babe of the Month entry. Obviously, a lovely lady is the primary subject of the photos. Next is a nice Mustang. This is a Mustang mag, after all. From there it comes down to style points. Photo quality, fashion, and Mustang mods come into play. Of course, it really seems to help if a girl poses with her own Mustang.

Yes, Mustang guys really love Mustang gals. However, if you really want to push your photos to the next level, sending in shots of a gal with her race car is a power play. Want proof? Well, Lauren Mormont won this month’s Facebook poll by a landslide with over 70 percent of the vote.

"I am 18 and I drag race this amazing ’88 Mustang for Beat the Heat." Lauren explained, "It’s a police drag racing team. My dad is a Cook County cop and had been on disability for 12 years. I took over racing, and my dad and I built this car together."

We have to say that an 18-year-old gal racing a 24-year-old Fox Mustang for a good cause is a tough combination to beat. Thanks for sharing Cara Weber’s ( shots of you, Lauren.

We know you’ve stopped reading by now, but if you think you know a gal that is BOTM material, well, you won’t know if you don’t get out from under the hood and take a picture of her with your Mustang—or better yet, hers. Send those pictures and a description of your babe and the car to: BOTM, 5.0 Mustang & Super Fords, 9036 Brittany Way, Tampa, FL 33619 or
