Every once and a while there are several Babe of the Month contestants that just miss appearing in BOTM. When we deem its worthwhile, we'll give a group of these gals a second chance at our online poll. This worked out well for Elana Koh, as she simply ran way with our poll this time.
A business management major at Kent State University, Elana says she works two part-time jobs while volunteering and pursuing modeling. In other words, she's pretty busy. Not too busy to enjoy circle-track and drag racing, driving around, and hanging out with friends. So she's smart, likes Mustangs, likes racing, and is obviously no slouch as a model. Certainly that's enough to rev up most of our readership.
Conversely, the car won't make everyone swoon, but Elana digs it. That's good enough for us.
Hiding in the photos is Elana's V-6, specifically an '01. While it doesn't have a V-8, it has a few choice mods. "The beauty in the picture is an '01 V-6 Mustang that is lowered 1.5 inches with 17-inch wheels," Elana explains. "Not just a beauty on the outside but also in the inside. It's equipped with a custom computer chip, a full BBK exhaust, underdrive pulleys, a throttle body, and an 8.8 rearend with 4.10 gears and an Eaton Locker."
We know you've stopped reading by now, but if you think you know a gal who is BOTM material, well, you won't know if you don't get out from under the hood and take a picture of her with your Mustang-or better yet, hers. Send those pictures and a description of your babe and the car to: BOTM, 5.0 Mustang & Super Fords, 9036 Brittany Way, Tampa, FL 33619 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
