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.
