Re: Keep stripes or go naked?.. votes please

I always suggest cragar ss wheels. And I personally like the stripes. I think 66-67 chevelles are the only ones that shouldn’t have stripes.

Maybe stripe the sides of the hood scoop, with the engine size included.
The car is subtle, stripes not needed.

So, my 69 post hot rod is now more stealth and resembles a 300 deluxe rod, my rod 🙂

Here are pics taken just now in the evening light in Hampshire UK...

Now I’m off for a drive!

Thanks!!!

I like the car!!!!

If that was mine I would paint the bumpers aluminum to give it a NASCAR all business look..

I have a 66 and just bought a cowl hood. I’m thinking about stripes so painted them on the black hood just to see if I liked them.
I’m still on the fence. Maybe I should have painted the hood to match the car first. I’m just playing with it now.

Ended up at the gas station for her debut - a regular destination for me - haha &#x1f642;

I’m happy with the decision
Looks very sinister. I love the look.

Sleek without. That nice skin "au natural" really shines Josh. It needed no aids for sure. SWEET!
