It’s not every day we get an entry with a cheerleader posing next to her new Mustang. If there’s one way to out-do the seemingly unbeatable girl-with-her- Mustang combo, it’s turning things up to eleven with a cheerleader-with-her-Mustang entry. Such is the case with this month’s winner, Karlyn Olson of South Florida.

“I am 23 years old and a native to South Florida. I work two jobs, but my favorite of the two is being a Lady Panther for the Florida Panthers NHL team,” she explained. “This means I am a cheerleader/dancer at all the home games at the BB&T Center in Sunrise. I was the co-captain last year and will be the head captain for the ’13-’14 season. This is going to be my fourth year on the team, and Ford has always been a sponsor for the Florida Panthers.”

While on duty at a Panthers game, Karlyn was able to witness the local Ford dealers bringing in the latest Ford rides to wow the crowd. She immediately fell for the ’14 Mustang, which is why you see it in the photos with her.

“I test-drove a couple of Mustangs and I really liked the V-6 engine. I travel a lot for my team and I was really impressed with the mpg on the highway, which made me think this would be an awesome car for me!” Karlyn explained. “What sold me on my car was the FP6 appearance package, which includes the black 18-inch Pirellis, body-colored quarter-window louvers, and a rear back spoiler.”

It goes without saying that she is a proud ’14 Mustang owner, and a worthy BOTM.
