Nice color combo. Of course I'm partial to the DWB. I was thinking of doing the DWB with "White" Shoulder Stripes.......anybody done that yet?

Stripes look great. But I wouldn't do them because that's a ford thing.

OUCH!
Thanks for the backhanded compliment. I guess. LoL.

Stripes are no more a "Ford thing" than any make car. I grew up looking at my neighbor's 1970 Charger sitting in the driveway next door. Those rally stripes he had on that thing made it look awesome. Then the guy across the street had his Roadrunner painted with rally stripes. Not all the way down the front or the back though. Just like the way I put them on mine.

That's how I remember two bad-ass muscle-cars from my early teens.

Sorry guys if I am popping off here without doing the research.

Correct me if I am wrong but these stripes where used at least back in the fifties by Briggs Cunningham.(before shelby)... I know I have seen Vipers with double stripes also. I guess it is kind of subjective if ford is the first thing you think of.:scratchhead:

I had the guy from the sticker place put about 5 samples of material on my car before I chose the metallic silver. The white looked good also. But the metallic look of the one I chose brings out the highlights of the DWB paint, I think.
But, sure, white shoulder stripes would look good, too.

I thought yours had a silver look to them. Looks great online. Bet it's way better in person!

.......and before Cunningham....weren't these double stripes on about the 35 or 36 DeSoto?

Sorry guys!! I did say the stripes looked good. I hate fords and there stripes. I don't like seeing challengers that look like ford mustangs. I see so many on the road(6 cyclinder fords) that are GT 500 wanda bee's.

The stripes look nice on your car. I don't get the ford thing regarding stripes. Its a stripe. To me no one company has the stripe market locked down. If I remember right didn't the 70 Camaro also have a dual stripe available and then there is the shaker hood who would have that 1st, ford or dodge and plymouth because the shaker was available in 1970 on the Mustang as well as the Challengers and Cuda's. To me its all personal preference.:thumbsup:
