    I'm thinking of something along these lines (of course it would be white on black). Thoughts anyone???

    The times below are for a stock GT. I have the Roush tune which adds 50-55HP, I don't need it to be any faster.

    White on black wouldn't work for me - red, orange, yellow (or any loud colour) would work on a sports model.

    Can you contact the place that did the customisation to see if they can show you a 'virtual' display on their own computer - many places that do custom paintwork or vinyl wraps have the software to do this, sometimes its better to 'see' what the end result is likely to be rather than visualise it.

    I've gone through a lot of pic's of Mustangs with all color stripes. Some down the side, some like the 1 in the picture in my post, and everything in between. I keep in mind the fact that I want the car to look a little bit different without going over the top.

    Ford is coming out with a Shelby GT 500 in 2019. I will definitely will look at it, so I have to consider what trading my GT in will be in terms of $$$$$, because the Shelby GT 500 isn't going to be cheap. So the last thing I need is for my GT to look too wild when (and if) I decide to trade it in and buy the Shelby. Time will tell, it always does.

    I vote for flat/satin black stripes...since your car is black. With or without red accent stripe(s), single or double. Either one.

    Just something about the black-on-black that makes it look sinister. Personally, I prefer the single stripe, as the old double LeMans stripe is becoming dated.
    If you Google black '17 Mustang with stripes, you get all kinds of ideas.

    Yeah I know but for me, every time I see a black performance car with white racing stripes, it reminds me of this l'il guy:

    Rich, the trick is to not be behind it. I do think I could pass it up.

    I know this one is a Shelby Cobra (not a fan of the hood scoops) but I like the toned down gray stripes without the pinstripes outline on the edge of the stripe:

    I could be wrong, but I think that's actually flat satin black stripes. Regardless, that's the look I like as well.

    Or, they may mistake you for Ted Nugent and his Bronco. That could be a good thing.

    Maybe, maybe not. It would depend on just how crazy he is on any given day.
