Stripe Color Change. What's your opinion?

Ok boys and girls, since I got my wife an Escalade, I've been driving the Camaro a lot more myself. It's time to get rid of the pink stripes and trim. I'm kicking around lime green, or Carolina blue. Red would be sharp, but it's very common. Any input would be appreciated!

Not only should you keep the stripes, you should get a matching fanny pack...

Lime Green all the way. I've been toying with a custom paint job of all black with lime green / yellow truefire flames myself.

Lime green with a pearl hint would rock! Go find the green on this car and do it that color

I am thinking of eventually some yellow stripes for my black ss, kinda a reverse Bumblebee. Saw it on a 68 at a car show and fell in love.

I'm not sure about the popularity of striping the car, but if I were a fan of stripes
( :-)..............I'd choose a pearl white, over a bronze base.

Oh, that does remind me of a super hot Camaro we saw in Pennsylvania...black with Carbon Flash Metallic stripes! If we hadn't ordered the 45th already, we would probably be in that car now! SEXY...but subtle.

What about Gold Stripes. They look great on my Summit White and would be great on your Black Camaro too! You don't see many done that way. I have only seen one other White car with Gold and have not sen any Black with Gold yet!
