Welcome to the August edition of the powerTV model shoot. Our last model was the beautiful Briana Lee, posing with a Camaro. This month we selected Pomona, California resident Ashley Bates to be our model, and because we couldn’t leave the blue oval guys hanging, we opted to have her pose with a super clean 1993 Mustang Cobra.

Rain, Rain, Go Away

So how often does it rain in Southern California? Well, not that often. So rarely, in fact, that this is the only model shoot so far that we have been forced do indoors. We typically try to shoot the model with the car outside, because it makes setting up the shots much easier. When moving around a car indoors, each shot needs to be adjusted for lighting, though in the end it was a successful shoot that didn’t require a ton of additional time.

Steve had always wanted a 1993 Ford Mustang Cobra and while this is his third Fox-body Mustang, it is his first Cobra. Steve found this car on eBay and he emailed the seller to ask what the reserve price was. The seller told Steve that she would sell it to him for eight thousand dollars. He couldn't pass it up, so Steve mailed her a check without even seeing the car in person.
