Stripes

Is it me or is every manufacturer trying to jump on the add stripes to sell their cheap cars as something they aren't ie the suzuki swift, and worse one still the fiat panda. Some cars you can get away with the more familiar clio in racing blue with white stripes but only in racing blue seen a few black ones with silver stripes big No No. The Mini with its bonnet stripes and the Fiesta ST.

Why the question? Well I was passed tonight by a 1.4 corsa bright white with a thick black stripe down the middle and just thought well why?
 
Folk have been putting their own stripes on for years, viper stripes back in the day lol ! (about ten years ago )

I quite like the stripes on an RB 182 other than they they look pish on cars.

I'll exclude the dodge viper & gt40 as they were born to wear them & look ace.

Some deserve the stripes and have the racing credentials to back them up, it's just they appear to be popping up everywhere on cars that a 17 year old would refuse to have.
 
Kind of a distant relative from the gt40 lol ...

Let me guess, only on a 182? lol

No problem with them on the ST it's when you see them on some thing as powerful as a 1.1 12V just makes me think it's a sales gimmick
