Well while working on the Restoration of the '70 C3 my better half decided we should get a touring Corvette since the C3's are notoriously loud and rough rides or as she says, "Babe it's not as comfortable as the Mercedes" LOL!
So in addition to the C3 pictured here (work in progress) and my Supercharged '56 210 we now have this 2016 C7 Z51. Plans are to add a Metallic Red stripe down the middle the width of the hood bulge (the full length of the car front to rear) with a .5" Metallic Blue stipe bordering it .5" off the Red stripe thus creating a very patriotic Red, White and Blue theme.

Your stripe package on the white will look cool. The 70 to 72 vette remains one of my favourite cars. There was a 79 near our house that was painted in a similar blue. Many years ago, the father of a friend of mine had a 74 with a 4 speed that was also that flavour of blue. Great look.
