i was wondering that, it had that look like it could have been an option. Looked like everything matched well enough..Still, just looks like an after thought and doesnt do the car any favors imo...

The corvette grandsport has those stripes not the ZR1. Not that matters either way.

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.

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.

Here are the cars that should not have been posted


Can't see the car, so can't really determine if the stripes are a fail


You have already posted this one, but yes it's a fail.


Autofails are about people making horrible aftermarket decisions to their cars. I do agree that it's a failure to drive this POS, it's just not the right kind of failure to post on the net and laugh at.


Same applies here, no failure in aftermarket mods.


Nothing wrong here!


Maybe headed in the wrong direction, but it's not a failure yet.


Nothing wrong here, just a different car culture.
