what do you all think of stripes?

i love the look of the 70 ss chevelle blue with white strips. the vipers look cool but are cramped as hell. the gt looks good in stripes. so i took my car to get measured for metallic silver gts"like" stripes for 650. then thought what the hell, might as well go and paint it since the vinyl will keep the paint from fading underneath therefore if i take the stripes off itd look like s. so my poll, machine silver stripes or none at all. i have a lemans blue z06 btw.

Stripes are a personal decision for sure.

I'd personally go for no stripes on the C6 Z but remember its just a personal opinion.

Good luck in whatever you decide.

If your painting aftermarket stripes...I'd go all the way down the bumpers to the underside both front and rear so it appears to run the full length of the C6....

I agree. I have never liked stripes on anything, but like you said it's a personal decision.

I love stripes. Don't be surprised if some just kinda show up on my C6Z. :P

I had to turn my monitor sideways to view those.

Ya like 'em or ya don't. I don't. :-)

They look tacky to me, kinda like the domestic equivalent of "type R" stickers for the import crowd.

I like stripes. I did mine in vinyl, so I could see if I would like them. I may get them painted on next year, but I think they look pretty good.

Do it.

Wow, dead even on this. I want to see a photo of your car when done. I think it will look bad, though a little Viper like. I was out yesterday with a friend - we were in his yellow C5 Z06 and we met a copper metallic car. He first said, look another Corvette Z06 coming..........turns out it was the new convertible Viper. The scoop on the hood catches your eye - from a distance it is hard to tell if its a new Z or a Viper. I don't even like writing that, but at first glance. I wished that I had of been in my new Z and going the same way as the Viper was...........it would have been interesting pullling alongside. The owner of the local Dodge dealership was driving it, she probably would have just looked and kept going, but who knows!

Stripe it!!!!!!!
