    I ESPECIALLY hate the GS Stripes on Firebirds, that's even worse than putting them on a Camaro.
    i agree on the firebird i said before i think the front end is already too busy looking. even though chevy in recent years had a grand sport model corvette with them on, i still look at it as a road racing "thing". in the '60s when owners started fielding multi-car teams, they had trouble distinguishing between the cars since they sported the same paint scheme, and the grand sport stripes[not even sure if they called them that back then] and "nose" stripes were some ways to accomplish that. so i look at it as making your car stand out from the rest, not a corvette thing.[that still doesnt mean theyre for everybodies taste] i dont like the look of old style emblems on new style cars either.[go figure]

    thats kinda why i was considering them. a z-28 is pretty plain up front, dont like any aftermarket hoods enough to spend that kind of money, i like the ss hood but its not an ss,and i dont want full stripes over the top, so whats left? i think they would be ok if the color wasnt too contrasting, yours sounds good. im thinking gray on black.
