    I like it.  When I was in high school a friend of mine had a black 79 2-door with white racing stripes front to back similar to that pic above.  The car also had a 454 in it.  It was sweet looking and FAST.  I ended up buying a 79 2-door a year later because I loved the back window (that and my parents said NO to Firebird).  They said I was allowed a BIG car only.  I made a good choice.

    I have seen stripes that were well done on a Caprice but they were more like these that the Chevelle had.

    I've always liked them too!






    Not stripes, but looks great!  I love the headlight covers!

    I really like the look of the "SS" stripes on the 77-79's! When it comes time to paint mine they will be done ghost style!

    I had to laugh. I was looking thru this thread thinking "I did stripes on my '79 just after high school, I should find one of those pictures and post it...wait...that last car was mine." So, yeah, my car was here before I was.
