Smile Oregon Ducks Uniform colors on Camaro?

As I watched the BCS Championship last night, one thing that was oddly on my mind were the Duck's uniform. I normally don't notice uniforms during games but, I must say their uniform was eye candy to me! I want a CGM 2SS Camaro when I go into the operational Air Force( I'm in DEP now), and I would love to add neon green and white to the car somehow. Maybe something like white stripes, neon green brakes and lining in the interior and around the stripes . I'm no expert at cars, so I would love to hear your thoughts on this idea or if you know about any pictures of this already been done. Here's a look at their uniform last night http://www.topflightkix.com/index.ph...mpionship.html

i saw the game last night, and while i'm not a fan of their uniform (that yellow drove me nuts!) it sounds like it could be cool. you'd def be unique. i played it safe and stuck to Red

I think I payed more attention to their socks than the actual game, lol. They do have a pretty sweet uniform though and I think if done right it could look good on the Camaro.

I saw the date you signed up. Over a year ago.

But you put a link to topflightkix.com up and you only had 2 posts. Plus, this was in the main section. Other than the sign up date, what was I supposed to think? It is kinda odd. Spammers get pretty clever.

But good on you. I was wrong.

The mods got it right apperently. I reported as spam.
Guess it's a good thing I'm not a mod.


So I guess I could at least give the courtesy of participating in your topic.

Those uniforms are hideous for a uniform. I don't see it looking good on a car. BUT, I said that before. Things look awfully different in person.

In my eye, here is the perfect set-up if you wanna do it on a camaro. Summit white w/ silver ice stripes. Then find a pinstripe specialist that can put that color in the border gap that is left with the stock stripe kits and since its pinstriping they can stripe your white interior trim kit while they're at it. This way it's not screaming LOOK AT ME but it is noticeable.

@PQ, yeah I used to be on this site a lot, even a year before I created my account. But Facebook took over and I'm sure you can guess the rest I agree, the neon did get in the way of the game a bit. The way I picture it, it's not as bad as you think. I mean, I won't drown the car in volt colors like Nike did to the uniform lol.
@Supaman, That idea sounds better than my kindergarten explanation haha but, I don't want Summit White lol. I'll still keep that idea in mind though.
@BlackFriday, I think you're correct, I'm sure it is carbon fiber. Nice catch!

The ducks change their uniform for every game. It's a different combination of the colors every time. They have over 9,000 combinations, so you won't see that combination again for a while.

Get a photoshop together. I thought my orange grill and spears on my hood might look like crap. Espec, the grill. But when I put it on I really saw something different than what I feared in my head.

Actually you know what, I thought about it like I said and I think I might just go with your idea on Summit white.

Was not diggin the uniforms at all. Was half way into the carbon fiber looking helmet though. I couldn't get past the socks and arm bands in the neon yellow it was a distraction for me. School and/or boosters have a lot of dough though as most schools have a home, away and a throwback jersey. I'm not sure I saw the same combination in any two games the Ducks played. My two cents.

That's because it's not the schools or boosters money. That's Nike home turf/testing grounds and we all know how they like to let the money flow. Expect to see TCU get some uniform love from Nike next year also if they keep kickin tail like they did this year.
