They'd look ok, I don't personally like the stripes really, or really like strips on cars much for that matter, is it a base, gt, gtu or z26?

They're kinda hard to visualize on a beretta, so they might look better on it than they do on the GTO.

I have a picture at home of what these look like on a white GTZ... do you know what they signify is the better question?

its a base. i plan on lowering it a little and doing a few other appearance things here and there. i did the full body stripes before and didnt really dig it that much. i havent seen those small ones that often so i figured i might get some feedback.


do they signify anything? i thought they were just for looks, non car specific i mean.

Eh, I don't know about putting them on a base.

They're only $20 though, not a whole lot to lose if you don't like em'.

@heavywoody How do they look on a beretta? I don't really like them, atleast from the pic he linked.

Personally, I think a beretta should stay nice and clean looking, no strips or ricer kits on them. (factory pin stripes are okay)

They are specifically Corvette Grand Sport stripes.

When the original Grand Sports ran at Nassau in the fall of 1963, three different colors of tape were used on the front of the cars to help identify them as they passed the pits at speed.

IMO, Grand Sport Corvette stripes only belong on Grand Sport Corvettes!

Gray duct tape? Forget that... Get some colored duct tape. Red duct tape stripes on a white beretta = win. (I may be blind or tired but I just assume your car is white because i can't see you saying what color it is anywhere...)
