May 2001: Angela

Easy fellas. It's too cold to go to New Jersey right now. But if you do go up there and catch cold, this month's BOTM Angela Lupiano is a nurse, so she could surely bring you back to good health. However, you'll have to contend with Angela's boyfriend, Matt DeCillis. That's his car she's leaning on. You can refer to page 160 of this issue for the goods on Matt's car. Angela's gonna be upset with us because we didn't run the photo of her car. It's a 2000 GT with a shifter and Flowmasters. She runs 13s in it, which should be quick enough to outrun most of the potential suitors in South Plainfield, New Jersey.

Think your gal is BOTM material? Then send your photos and car descriptions to BOTM, 5.0 Mustang & Super Fords, 3816 Industry Blvd., Lakeland, FL 33811, or finish.line@ primedia.com.

June 2001: Laura & Karen

How's this for a feat? Allan Shang was able to talk his child's babysitter, Laura Taylor (left), and her friend Karen Franks to pose with his '99 Cobra convertible. He had to let Laura borrow the car for a weekend, but we can appreciate the lengths 5.0&SF readers will go to keep us in Babe of the Month photos. Now if we can get you to stop thinking about two chicks and a convertible for a minute, Alan would like you to know that in addition to the girls, his Cobra wears a K&N air filter, a MagnaFlow after-cat exhaust, and a Steeda Tri-Ax shifter. Good work, Alan. We hope your wife didn't finish cleaning the shotgun until after you were done with the photo shoot.

July 2001: Kari & Julie

Just when our files were starting to run low on quality BOTM material, Michael Hart of Glendale, Arizona, sent in a couple of ringers. The blonde on the left is his wife, Kari, and the brunette is their "girlfriend" Julie. Way to go, Michael! As for the '91 GT hiding in the background, it sports a K&N filter, Eibach lowering springs, 17-inch BBS wheels, Michelin rubber, a Cobra intake, a Flowmaster exhaust, and one happy driver.

August 2001: Jo

We're sure all of you recognize Doug Mangrum's wicked Pro 5.0 Mustang. Doug's ProCharged Liberty five-speed combination was the first Pro 5.0 in the sixes. Who you might not recognize is Doug's wife, Jo. We were used to seeing her in a crew uniform knee-deep in Doug's transmission, making between-round repairs. We knew Jo was a lovely gal, but when we got these photos, all we could say was "Wow!" Go get 'em, Doug. Jo says Doug's car will see some changes this year, in addition to some new sponsors, but we just hope this is a preview of the new Team Mangrum crew uniform.
