  • I met Michelle at my first mustang club event. I have often asked about her when I would attend meetings wondering why I hadn't seen her. She was so welcoming fun and friendly. I will never forget how she took me under her wing that day and explained and guided me through the tour. She even showed me her beloved Mustang and revved it up for me. She was such a wonderful person and I will never forget her. Ros Turner
