that play together stay together, and this
month’s Stang Stud and Mare definitely prove
that this is true!
Welcome new members, Rob
and Lyn Walter to
the Female Power section.
A couple from North Richland Hills, Texas,
the two began attending car shows in 2002 but
before they knew it... they were HOOKED!
“We had such a good time at our first few
shows that now we don’t know what to do on a
weekend without one!
And since joining Mustang Works and GC2 [Girls Can Too] we have met
a lot of couples that share the same interest we
have and we’ve made some great friends to hang
out with”, Lyn boasts.
The two have attended almost all of my GC2
events and flatter us by saying, “They’re the
most fun events we have ever gone to!”
Of course, I remind them that GC2 may lay
the foundation for females in the hobby, but the enthusiasts are the ones
who are responsible for the wonderful outcome!
of enthusiasm, this couple is full of it!
Owning one of the coolest Mustangs around
is not an easy task to take on, but they knew what
they wanted and set out in search of the perfect
base car for their vision.
“It had to be yellow with a black top and
sport a 5 speed transmission.
It took several weeks but we finally
located one.”, Rob said.
It’s no surprise that their first mod was
Flowmaster exhaust followed up by gears in the
rear, however those safe mods weren’t enough for
the two fiends.
“We wanted to have a car that also looked
different so we enlisted James Laird at MPH
Colorworld for the flamed paint job.”
Of course, they realized all too soon that
the performance also needed to
match the awesome paint job and a Vortech
supercharger was installed. Rob told us, “It topped it off perfectly."
interest in Mustang’s started back in her
teenage years but she didn’t buy her first one
until her late 20’s.
Originally from Orlando, Florida, Lyn has
been in Texas since 1995.
Growing up near Daytona Beach her and her
family spent many summers at the Daytona Speedway,
“So race and car shows have always been
appealing to me.
My first ‘stang was a 93 LX 5.0
My love for these cars grew even deeper
because of that coupe.
Since then we’ve owned five more, four of
which have been ‘verts, and we just couldn’t
imagine not having one in the garage!”
Rob laughs, “We definitely bleed Ford Blue”.
That is apparent the minute you lay eyes on
the automobile, which is parked alongside their
2002 F150 Harley Davidson also resides at the
Walter home, one that has also received the same
attention to detail and boasts the same “whistle
sound” under the hood.
Oh yah, yet another thing they can’t live
“There’s nothing like a blower to help
propel us down the highway or the racetrack!”,
Lyn says. It’s
apparent that this couple likes to stand out from
the sea of north Texas ‘Fords that over-populate
the DFW Metroplex.
“They’re both a little unique looking
and wear personalized license plates. There’s no mistaking our cars in a parking lot.
No matter where we are it’s easy to spot
either of them!”
Exactly what you both wanted…Congrats on
a job well done! MW
