Ford and SEMA want you to choose among 3 possible all-female Mustang builds

Given the current high level of interest and ownership of the latest Ford Mustang among Garage denizens, I figured you might be interested in this story from Autoextremist:

Quote:
The SEMA Mustang Build Powered by Women is a collaboration between Ford Motor Company and the Specialty Equipment Market Association (SEMA). Led by the SEMA Businesswomen’s Network (SBN), a 2013 Mustang GT donated by Ford will be completely modified using the winning design from start to finish by women. Beginning with three concepts developed by women designers and concluding with women volunteers performing the hands-on modifications, the project is meant to shine light on women working in the automotive aftermarket and to encourage more women to pursue careers in the industry.
Here are the 3 possibilities they're considering:

CHROMATIC



HIGH GEAR



FAST METAL



To vote for your favorite among the 3, visit:
All Female Mustang Build for Sweepstakes by Hot Rod Magazine

The top vote-getter will be built and exhibited this fall at the 2012 SEMA Show in Las Vegas & auctioned off on eBay Motors. Proceeds to benefit the SEMA Memorial Scholarship Fund. Oh, and voters at the link above will also be automatically entered in a daily drawing for Ford Mustang and SEMA-themed schwag: Ford 5.0 hat, Boss 302 Sport Bag, Shelby GT500 T-shirt, SEMA SBN T-shirt, Cafe SEMA Power by SBN Coffee Mug, SEMA Pen, SEMA Lanyard and SEMA drawstring bag.

For the record, #2 (High Gear) got my vote.

For the record....the other two are the stupidest things I've ever seen and #2 (High Gear) is actually a bad ass car!

Hi-gear but I like the brown paint on the third. The blue with the gray on the first is actually visually pleasing (for a track car) but the interior kills it.

Poster, I mean poster. What have I done?

First one looks like it came from Tron. The second one is pretty boring, but that's probably why it's the best.

Nah, those are too blue. Mine is far more teal (higher green tint)
