Vote - White or Black Stripes

All - I'm polling the C5 masses. I'm curious what the collective is. On a Hugger Orange (not IOM) would you go with White stripes or black?

I'm considering taking my car to an autobody for an overhaul to Hugger Orange. Since i have a ZL600, I may be shifting back closer to the traditional SLP look (with a slight twist). I think this will be a nice throwback look. I will be getting the stripes painted on at the same time and am just torn as they both would look great.

To help you choose, renders of what the car would like were created.

Lets see the votes!

Thanks All!

Option 1 - White Stripes





Option 2 - Black Stripes





** Here are the two options next to their 60s brethren **

Most the time I would say white, but since your bezels and back end of the car are black. I am voting black.

Black looks like a pumpkin. Hugger always looks better with white. Makes the orange look brighter too. No brainer IMO.

depends what you're going for. Black is the more sinister look. And since you already have some blackout pieces, and the zl1 front end has a lot of black.

My 69 RS/SS was Dover White with Hugger Orange stripes. My vote goes to white. I think white on orange pops much more than black. Great color, BTW.

I usually like the white, hence the white leather interior, but I think the black stripes look a lot better with your car. I voted black.
