Our 2008 BOTMs, with the hot pics you saw in the pages of 5.0, PLUS some pics we couldn't print!

January 2008: Lindsay

Usually we get fathers sending in cute shots of their toddlers inelectric Mustang toys, but this time around we have a stepdad, Dave DePeau of Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, who submitted shots of his lovely stepdaughter, Lindsay Richardson, for BOTM. We hope Mom is OK with that.

Lindsey joined the fray in one of our most competitive BOTM online polls in recent memory. After we sorted out all the skullduggery going on, we determined she was the winner, and you can see why. Not surprisingly, Dave doesn't have much to say about her, but he has a lot to say about the '05 Mustang GT he owns with Lindsay's mom, Terry.

"Our Torch Red coupe has a Shelby theme without slavishly duplicating all of the Shelby-look elements," Dave says. "It has the white Le Mans-style stripes like a Shelby, but the pinstripes on both sides of each stripe subtly set them apart. The sides of the car have Graphic Express Mustang fader rocker decals instead of Shelby-style rocker decals."

Other mods include American Muscle GT4 wheels, Pirelli PZero Nero tires, a Vortech supercharger, FRPP exhaust, FRPP gears, Steeda lower control arms, and a host of shiny billet stuff from MGW, UPR, and Silver Horse Racing. All of the gears were installed at CJ Pony Parts. The results are 360.14 hp and 338.64 lb-ft of torque at the rear wheels.

"The car hasn't been to the track since the Vortech was installed. Prior to the installation, the car ran a best of 13.68/102.52 in thequarter-mile," Dave says. "The staff at CJ's assured me that the carshould now easily break into the 12s."

Nice car, Dave, but about Lindsay

February 2008: Laura

When you're known around town as Sexy 'Stang, it should go without saying that you're BOTM material. That's certainly the case for Laura Litke, who topped our online poll at 50mustangandsuperfords.com.

Laura is the proud owner of a 40th Anniversary Edition red V-6 Mustang, and her boyfriend--sorry, fellas--owns an '05 Mustang. Since Laura didn't tell us much about either car, we have to assume they're stock. But you guys aren't really reading this page for the cars anyway, are you?

Think your gal is BOTM material? Then send your photos and car descriptions to BOTM, 5.0 Mustang & Super Fords, 9036 Brittany Way, Tampa, FL 33619, or finish.line@sourceinterlink.com

March 2008: Lindsey

We absolutely love it when our BOTM submissions start like this: "OK, so this is my car. It's a '90 Anniversary Edition GT. Yes, it'sfive-speed--I wouldn't drive it any other way. I'm 22 years old, and I am a full-time student at Oswego State in New York. I work my butt off to support my infatuation with my cars. I have owned 3 Mustangs so far: a '93, a '97, and now my '90 (third time's a charm)."

When you put that setup along with the pictures of the fox with a Fox you're looking at, you can see why Lindsey Scott took top honors in our online poll (50mustangandsuperfords.com). "I catch a lot of people off guard when they find out my infatuation with Mustangs," Lindsey says. "I just tell them that every little girl wants a pony growing up, and mine just happens to be a 5.0. If I do win, I have to thank my good friend and photographer Dan Rioz. He encouraged me to take the pictures again."

Well, we thank Dan for sure. We're confident you've gone back to looking at those pictures, but in case you want to know about the car, it features BBK lowering springs and cold-air intake, KYB Performance shocks and struts, Flowmaster mufflers, and a Steeda short-throw shifter. Lindsey plans to add 3.73 gears.
