Pinstriping?

I've seen it said many times in these forums (and others) that this car and especially this color scream "Awesome Muscle Car" and I know that the stripes bring back a certain nostalgia, but I have a question. Has anyone thought about some old skool pinstriping? My car will be ordered in a few weeks and while I'm waiting I plan on going to Bike Week and talking to some of the pinstriping vendors. I think IBM with some red highlights (RS badge, tasteful pinstriping, red rims) would really set it off.

Thoughts? Anyone seen anything like this?

I haven't seen any with just pinstripe, but it could look nice. I all comes down to: "It's your car, do what makes you happy". But if you go the pinstripe route, be sure to post some pictures!

True. And I firmly believe in the idea that it's my car and well...you know the rest. My only concern is I'm only used to seeing pinstriping on motorcycles and just wondered if anyone had any pictures or seen any results on the Camaro.

Thanks

Check out the link below and there are a few pictures of a Cyber Gray Metallic Camaro with an orange pin striping scheme that you might want to check out. These are pics of a car that runs with our group. Notice the placement of the bow tie in the pinstriping.

Good luck and post pics of whatever you decide to do!

I posted this on one of the other forums, but it will just get lost.
I ordered this set of red vinyl lettering for the side emblems. They were cheap and I had to see what they looked like. I really love the IBM/chrome/red look. And I thought that these would make the side markers similar to the SS emblem (red surrounded by chrome). Not sure if I like them or not.

Good! Then here is my story!

I don't know how many people still read this blog, seeing as much of the excitement has worn off since most people bought their IBM in '09. However, since I am only now purchasing, I hope somebody still reads this!

So why a Camaro? I suppose everybody has a different answer. Mine lies in my previous car history. My first car was a '93 Ford Aerostar, forest green, short version. I lovingly referred to her as "The Box". It had at least 100hp! I drove this van throughout high school (did my dad realize giving a 16 year old boy a minivan was an awesome idea? I tend to think yes!!) and my some of college, 5 years in total. Good first car. Up next, an '02 Saturn SL-1, silver. If you don't know this model of Saturn, it is possibly the least stylish car ever imagined. No acceleration (maybe 120hp at best), no room, no style (but realiable). This was the next 5 years of my driving life. Ok, so I'm only 25 now (you can call me Dr. 25, thank you!) but after 10 bland, listless years of driving, I want something exciting!! Enter the Camaro.

I recently graduated pharmacy school (spring '10), and have just now built up enough money for a decent downpayment. I chose IBM in large part thanks to all of you who have posted on this site.

Did anyone else have to argue with their girlfriend/boyfriend/wife/husband/significant other/whatever about which model to get? My girlfriend was very sure that I should get the V6 automatic. Of all people to help convince me that she was wrong, my dad was the final person to convince me. Since I had never bought a new car before, I took him to the dealer with me. We test drove both V8 and V6 models, and when we were almost done with the V6, he said, "Son, this is your daily driving vehicle. Are you going to regret that you didn't get exactly what you want every single time you get in this car, or are you going to get the car that you want?" Well, that sealed it!! I pretty much splurged my ass of with this car, but I don't regret it at all!

So here I am, late January, with my order produced and en route. I think I may keep the Saturn as a winter driver, but that does not mean I will be storing this beauty. Perhaps once the proverbial shininess wears off, I may, but not yet. Not yet for a long time.

Finally, the issue of naming. Like I said, I'm a pharmacist now, and I was thinking of naming her Zoloft. You see, Zoloft is blue and makes you happy. I suppose Viagra is the same, but too obvious for my taste. What have other people named their's?

So there is my story that nobody asked for. Thanks everybody for posting, it was most helpful in making my own decision. Happy driving everybody!!!!!!!
Great story! Doc, were you start ur story with the Camaro is were it is the same with me. At the time girlfriend said get the auto V6, talked to Dad and said same as your Dad. Get exactly what you want, in the end your the one driving "Venom", what I named mine Congrats on your order, thanks for shairing
