I have seen this Color Scheme before on a Mustang GT or Cobra that was at some Auto Show.....but the Colors do go together well....I painted a body this summer with the same colors they look really good on it.

Didn't Firestone have red stripe tires back in the sixties?

Both Goodyear and Firestone had red stripe tires back then.

I'm pretty sure Firestone's stripe was red and Goodyear's was blue. Goodyears were called "Blue Streak Specials." I used to buy tire painting pen (really more like crayons!) and make white letter and striped tires!

Chris are you cutting your stripes with a plotter or xacto and masking tape? Surely you arent using liquid mask.

Buddy, yo do a incredible job, I loved the "elenor" look with the silver and black Mustang, very nice. Tell you what, if the local track in Toronto starts up VTA series, I'm calling you first.

Dodgeboy,

You do some really awsome work. I didn't realize that it was most of your bodies I was racing against at the HPI challenge in Cherry Hill, NJ.

Keep up the good work!
