I like that red WRX too, although, the wing on it is a little bit failey

And I mean come on. that charger? Those were made to rock 20's
Eclipse= roof scoop hood scoop from eBay.
Imprezza (no WRXs here in that body style)= ricer wing.

Below is right, its not a race car and I highly doubt its ever been on or will be on a track. He may be part of a "race team" though.

Mopar has never that I know of used them on their cars, just as the logo for dodge.

They are known as FIA stripes.

Anyways, the stripes were first used back in '63 by carroll Shelby. He used them on his cobra race team car. So he could tell his car apart from the other cobra race team from the pits cause both cars were painted black. He put yellow stripes on the fender.

Quote from shelby website.
They were first used on a Cobra (CSX2128) at the 1963 Sebring FIA race. The stripes were painted on 2128 to distinguish it form the other team Cobras (all black painted body's) that were racing. The color chosen for the 2128 was yellow.
