I am looking at adding racing stripes to my Impulse Blue GTO. Just curious on everyone's opinion of adding them or not (any negative consequences)? and what color (black or white)? If you have a pic of an Impulse Blue with racing stripes, please post it for me to see if possible? Thanks.

I hear ya on the stripes - I test drove a Silver/Red combo that has red stripes. I really thought they set off the car but my friends threatened to take the bus, lol. I ended up with a black/red GTO and I still think the red stripes would look sharp.

Who makes the stripes anyways? Is there a place online to look at some examples of GTO's with them?

In the end though, it's your car, if you like it - go for it. If we wanted to please other people we'd have all bought Accords and Camry's... YUCK.

I think stripes can look good on certain cars with the right combinations. It was easy to do my track car, just the classic blue on white. I think I would go with other exterior mods than stripes on the GTO to set the car apart.

Goats don't have stripes. Chevys and Fords have stripes not Pontiacs.

I like stripes but not on Goats.

If you have to do it, be a little different, go yellow or some dark shade of blood red. But I beg you, dont' strip a GTO. Bad Karma.

Yea I figured there were one or two F-bodies. I don't really count those because it doesn't further my cause.. I mean they are not much different than the Camaro at that point. :p

I am really opposed to a striped GTO.

Two reasons.
  • GTO's have never been striped from the factory
  • 04'+ GTO's look like crap with stripes in my humble opinion.

I am going for a more subtle look so I would prefer black stipes over white (imho, white looks more aggressive). But would black stripes look good on a blue goat (???). If there are any photoshop pros, feel free to put black stipes on a blue goat for me and post it. Thanks.

How about IBM stripes? That would be subtle...

I'm with PJ. Unless it comes from the factory (or as an option), I think they're ghey! :D

Sorry! You have all that surface area to make shine and you want to mess it up with a vinyl stripe?!?!

Somewhere around were pictures of a red Monaro with silver stripes, I thought that looked pretty trick.
