"Not only do I have a 5.0, but my brunette bombshell girlfriend LauraCunningham is there to wash and wax when needed," Johnny Burke says.Wow--a pretty girl that will wash your Mustang for you? She's a keeper,Johnny. Our online voters agreed, as Laura scored 61 percent of the votein our poll. He must want to keep her all to himself, as Johnny didn'tshare much more info about Laura. Who could blame him?
Of course, similar to most 5.0&SF readers, Johnny is more than happy totell us about his '86 Mustang GT. "It has 3.73 gears, BBK short-tubeheaders, Flowmasters, and a mass air meter. This car is basically stockbut this Pony scoots--and on occasion, gallops--down the street quitewell. It runs a 14.5 and has a unique color."

Sure, she didn't know stackinjection from a double-pumper, but it sure looked and sounded sexy.That's just fantasy; Rory Duncan lives the reality.
"This is my fiance Amber. She's 21 and my little hottie! She's a carbuff and loves to work on the 'Stang. She helped with installation ofthe new intakes, clutch quadrant, lower control arms, and othermiscellaneous jobs on the car," Rory says. "She can handle the car well,too. Last pass at the track she ran a 13.20 at 106 out the door with nosecond gear and poor traction!"
You're a lucky man, Rory. Not just because of the lovely Amber, but yourcar sounds cool. It features a 0.030-over 302 with a 150 shot of NOSnitrous, a Ford Racing Performance Parts F303 camshaft, a ProfessionalProducts Typhoon intake, BFG drag radials, and more. Rory also saysAmber owns an '89 Mustang that she's swapping a V-8 into, so he betterwatch out.
