Opinions-White Racing Stripes

Okay peoples. I was flirting with the idea of putting white racing stripes on my R/T. My roommate said it would look awesome, I think it might look awesome (I'm debating). I'm looking for more opinions. What do you people think?

Thanks for your help!

Well I'm sure that someone handy with Photoshop and a frt/rear picture of your car will help you make your decision. :-)

Personally, I can't stand those wide stripes on cars... Some are more offensive than others (eg, the Hyundai Excel I saw sometime ago). I'd rather stick with a monochrome paint scheme myself.

Ironic though how I kinda fancy those big tires with the yellow/red/blue rubber stripe down the tread that ricers seem to like. Go fig! Can't remember who makes those - probably Yokohama? I'd never have those on MY car, but they're kinda cool.

yes someone that does some nice photoshop work should be able to "install" them on your car free of charge so you can see what its like. Personaly I do not really like racing stripes on my own car,

I mostly think they look stupid but I saw a car that had them offset to the left and they looked sharp. I think because they were not too wide it looked better.

Isn't that two words?

Ummmmmmmmm........the consenses seems to be no.

I guess I'll go with plan B. It's time to get a "Type R" sticker, a coffee can, a picnic table for a spoiler, and maybe a VTECH sticker, and some Japaneese Anime art graphics! hahahahahahahha

warlord...technically, it's a word and a contraction. :p :p :p

please, please, please, please don't desecrate your r/t in the ricer fashion. this includes all of the following: picnic bench, park bench, dinner table, fart tip, coffee can, bumblebee, type R, VTEC, VTEK, Powered by...(insert anything word here), or anything thing else that you've ever seen in your rearview as you've flown past a honda or a mitsubishi.

I know you guys are mostly against "riceing up" the Intrepids, but I kinda like the ricers (in my rear view hahahaha). I'm gonna rice up my 2002 R/T and nobody is gonna stop me =). I'm gonna get mirror tinted windows (silver and blue two tone), I'll also go for those blue LED chrome washer nozzles and maybe some Chrysler and R/T badging, possibly even "Powered by Magnum" LOL.

My idea is to put a bumble bee stripe on the rear quarter panels like they use to in the late 60's MOPARS. I've seen a DAKOTA with them and it looked awesome! After I get wheels that will be my next project. Turning my TREP into the KILLER BEE to match my 68 SUPERBEE! HELL YEAH!

Not my cup of tea either. I think that some sort of subtle graphic/pinstripe is the way to go. Tasteful, not garish.

Reminds me that as a joke I put red racing stripes on a Ford Tempo I had - too many beers in the hot sun I guess - but it did look hilarious!

Hey warlord, if you want them, get them, but sense you asked for peoples opinion, your gonna get em lol. I think putting racing stripes on the R/T would ruin the classy look of it. I look at an intrepid as a luxury car, but when you bolt down a 3.5 or a 3.2 magnum in it, its a luxury sleeper. Thats the cool part of it. Personally I would use the same money for the stripes, and take my girl out to dinner, just my 2 cents....
