Not an Imp, but lookin for input...

So with the TA in Highlighter "PO-range crush" & the Impala in a decent paint restored finish, my attention is back on the ol camaro...

Always was a fan of the white camo vinyl wraps ever since I saw a Lambo done on one of the Bull Run series with Goldberg as host...

What do u all think about the camaro done like one of these... personally Im kind of partial to the ones that have some red in them.

Currently;

Interesting

I've never seen that on a car, but I'm gonna guess it's not quite so sought after a look for those old enough to have grown up on these:


That's already a real pretty car and seems a shame to Duck Dynasty/clown it up. Sorry, but you asked.

Wrap is a great idea though. Why not some flagrant wide racing stripes in a garish pattern of choice?

Well with the GM tech center right across the street from us we see future production cars & trucks in camo all the time so it is nothing new around here. It is a unique look and if that makes you happy then you should do it.

An Aztec is about the only thing could possibly carry that off. Well ok, and maybe a Subaru Brat. But only if it has the seats in the bed. But you're right. If he like it then GO!

it'll be the 100% opposite of camo though - and incidentally perfect way to avoid theft.

Oh comeon. Now I KNOW you're kidding. Talk about a half-assed attempt at hiding a model re-skin.

This Mustang actually looks better.
How and why automakers work hard to camouflage their cars

if this is really a new thing, then please just bring back Big Wheels. With spinners! Even candy wrapper and cereal box paint showed more creativity.

I guess cause stripes are just stripes... not really the attention draw Im looking for.

I also remember those candies... i didnt like them at all.
