Meet Lauren Samuhel, a 23-year-old from Greenbrier, Arkansas. She originally picked up her black, automatic 2011 5.0L Mustang in Atlanta, Georgia.

When we asked Lauren about the modifications, she said, “her modifications include the Boss/CS lower front fascia with fogs, billet grille, halo and projector headlights with LEDs, the BMC Manta Ray hood with ram air induction, Airaid cold air intake, 18-inch AMR’s wrapped in Nittos, GT500-style rear spoiler, MMD painted trunk emblem surround, taillight covers, and Roush axle-backs with resonator delete.”

Of course our favorite part of the response is when Lauren added, “I installed all the modifications myself aside from the hood and resonator delete.”

Everyone has their own reasons for getting the Mustang bug, and for Lauren it was her dad who taught her how to change the oil in the family cars, dirt bikes, and four-wheelers, including rotating the tires and just tinkering around with things.

Lauren said, “We didn’t have any muscle cars back then (except you better believe they were all Fords!), but it was still great father-daughter time. I learned at an early age how important it is to know how to take care of your possessions. When I was 9, I remember seeing one around town and I decided at that moment that I had to own a Mustang someday—and here we are now!”

Lauren admits that there have been a few tough moments, but she has enjoyed every minute with her 5.0L. She especially enjoys cruising around, running at the track, and attending events to meet fellow car enthusiasts.

“It’s neat hearing about the stories behind the car and seeing all of the work and passion put into it,” said Lauren. “One of my favorite local meets to attend is with Arkansas Street Machines—good friends and good times. Hopefully I will be able to attend bigger car events in the future and continue to meet new enthusiasts.”

Well said, and keep that pony going!
