Exactly. Most "racing" stripes look awful and kill the look of a car.

HINT: IMHO make sure they are strait, not too wide, and for the love of the almighty keep them off the bumpers!

BTW, hard to go wrong with silver on red. Not quite as bold as white, which suits some cars well.

I personally like traditional stripes better than the heritage stripes. Anyone see the stripes on the burgandy RS in CHP? Those are perfect IMHO.

i know some maroon cars got gold Iroc decals, so why not gold? i think that might look OK on maroon.
