l like it! But I still think the mach stripes are better. But everyone has different tastes.
That's the beauty of restomodding, you can make your vehicle look however you want (or can afford) to make it.
I tell you, after over 40 years "in the hobby", it is really refreshing to see another generation getting into it and not necessarily for fiscal reasons. I don't have anything against restorers or numbers-matchers but I think there is plenty of room in the hobby for modifyers, hot rodders and racers.
To each his (or her) own!
Go for it stebbsi...I used to have a pic with a coupe that had a c stripe. I 'll see if I can dig it up this week.
Gotta agree cobra! Never bash anyone and treat people well.
Try it and see how you like it unless you have the "finished" paint on the car.
The paint on my car is not all that nice so I am trying the ideas I want for the "finished" paint. Mask it off and buy some rattle cans and have at it!

When I die I want to die like grandpa, peacefully in my sleep... not screaming, like his passenger.
I always liked the 1970 'Boss 302' stripes coming down off the hood.
I'll bet that would look pretty cool using the '71 Mach 1 hood template to start off the big center stripe, then a smaller stripe to wrap down to the fender in the typical 1970 'Boss 302' area (except with a Mach 1 logo in the break).
I don't see why the 'C' stripe won't look cool either.
I like the C stripes. Maybe someone could photoshop the C stripes on a picture of your car for you.

I like 'em, too. I say give it a shot - I think they would look pretty hot.
