A few years back, our Ride of the Month winner Melissa took her father’s Mustang out for a spin. There was an instant connection and she fell in love with it. She knew she had to have her own Mustang, so her search began. She stumbled across a black 2008 Mustang GT convertible that she just couldn’t pass up, it was meant to be. Her husband also loves Ford Mustangs, so the decision wasn’t a hard one to make, and shortly after her husband bought one for himself.
For the past two years, Melissa and her husband have been building her Black Beauty mod by mod, and will continue to do so until it’s complete. Her husband goes by the “ladies first” method when it comes to modifying their rides, so once Black Beauty is done they will move on to his Mustang.
Melissa loves every bit of her ride, and continues picking out all the mods for her. The next phase of Black Beauty’s makeover will be a full exhaust set with headers and a Steeda intake with a tune. For even more power under the hood, they plan to add a pulley conversion kit. After that, Black Beauty will be sitting lower with an upgraded suspension.
While taking pictures of Black Beauty, I noticed several pink ribbons on the ride. Melissa is going with black and small hints of pink as the theme for her ride. There will be more hints of pink on the exterior of Black Beauty, and maybe more ribbons. Melissa had a breast cancer scare in the past, which is part of the reason for her theme with Black Beauty. The Rose organization helps those without insurance get the help they need at very little cost. The money she raises with the help of close friends go towards to pay back the help they gave her please to pay it forward and help others that are or were like her. Later on one of her friends passed away with breast cancer. Any free time Melissa has, she helps raise money or speaks for The Rose, her friend sweet Ana is always on her mind. That is another way Melissa decides to show her support, by giving Black Beauty some hints of pink.
