Have some one with photoshop put stripes on a pic of a 66. I think you will find they do look out of place.

if you are talking about the dual wide stripes on a 70-72 putting them on a 66 then yes, they will look odd and out of place. In fact to me they look odd and out of place on any car other than a 69-70something Camaro or 70-72 Chevelle.
A 66 is such a clean car why would you want to do that to it? If it is trying to look different then try wheels, leave the stripes to the newer chevelles and camaros.

Please don't do it. There's a damned good reason you don't see those stripes on a 66!
If you want something different, do a FOOSE styled two tone if you HAVE TO DO something. A solid color looks the best and it will never go out of style, especially if it's a factory color or a slight variation on it.

You could also do a 60's 'gasser' style paint job, if you stuck with that whole theme, like jacked up front end, big tires sticking out the rear wheel wells.... maybe a small jungle of injection tubes sticking out of the hood.... ANYTHING but band -aid stripes

I'd don't think my opinion is important but I think you know how most (if not all) people feel.

Well, it is a personal opinion... I have seen many over the years, and never seen one I liked.

IMO, they were ugly because of the stripes. Of course, it also seemed like most of the '66s with stripes were "low-budget" anyway (cheezy "chrome" 14" wheels, cheap pull-on hose covers in the engine compartment, etc).

I had thought about doing SS stripes on my 66 and went back and forth. So I pulled the trigger...
