Full Version: Go Faster Stripes On Cars That Really Shouldn't

A car caught my eye in the rear view mirror today. A Nissan city car with go faster stripes!

Pretty sure it was this one:

Now I'm personally not a fan of go faster stripes on cars other than the likes of a Shelby mustang but I can understand the appeal for a genuinely sporty car, but something like a pixo? Really?

It might be interesting to see any other cars you find which really don't suit these sort of accessories (Cue every V*, LOL)

Nah I think they look good.

 

More saying about the ones which go over the bonnet and sometimes over the roof, but on cars that really do not warrant it.

Nah you're OK, this is for cars that really shouldn't.

Isn't that chevvy just a rebadged cor*a?
Marcr1

Phew! I believe so... 1.2 in all it's glory  :oops:  I often see a black one around my way with bright lime green stripes, not nice

b1g_dav3

Jesus Christ!!!!

 

I just went looking at the Spark as I used to have a Matiz (which the Spark replaced) and the Aveo looks quite cool from the front, went on to configure... £1,618 for 17 inch alloy wheel upgrade?! £96 for 'Premium Floor Mats'?! My God...

 

The Spark did feature on Transformers though? :P

Hmm, just no
alexp999

Nice hubcaps and silver mirrors too.

 

Some cars just look like they have been driven over with stripes.

DAN222

I bet you changed down a gear when you saw the go faster pixo in your rear view.  :D

It is an ST it is allowed stripes.

 

OAP and 0-60 in 15s cars are not ;)

Phew!!  ^_^  Guess I can tell you now I still have some stripes to be fitted that go from the bonnet, over the roof and down the boot! just waiting for some good weather.... :unsure:

b1g_dav3

Seeing a lot of C1's and Aygo's with them lately... Terrible cars.

jeebowhite

I fancy drawing GFS's on my motor :D I think it would look pretty awesome, but as I am doing it on a budget, the GFS's would be made with masking tape :D

 

I think it would still look cooler than some of the shiz that we have just seen above...

Stoney871
In my consideration only two cars deserve stripes.
Shelby GT500 and AC Cobra.
End of chat :d
jeebowhite

Marcr1
Dodge viper deserves stripes to!

OOO, Sweet ;)

jeebowhite

Very Nice,

 

IMHO though, I think the bold black stripes would have looked better thinner (allowing the red to be more prominent) but it does look good!

:P

 

Wow, looks great with the matching door mirrors too :)

 

This on the other hand....:

that looks like an angry and crappeh body kitted Corsa, with a smart car bolted to the upper half. Its disgusting, and every one of them should be put down.

 

if I wanted to sit in a vehicle where my legs where either side of the gearstick, and there was a chance the driver was going to grab hold of the wrong gear knob, then I would sit in a van...

Philf1

 

Really? And this must be themost ridiculous ever,a Lada Riva!!!

 

alexp999

That second one looks like it has been dumped at the side of the road and a line painter has gone over it :lol:

Philf1

Used to live in Hull in the 80's and every taxi was a Lada. They must be the worst car ever built,apart from a C***a of course

Turvey

Bacon stripes anyone?  :)

Well its most definitely different.

I thought that the consensus of the lada was its a terrible car to own, but the car runs day after day?

That's why the taxi drivers of hull used them. When they fell out of favour they were all exported back to Russia there were hundreds of the bloody things on the docks.
