Something Fords have been missing for a while...

These! Think they would look good in the flesh on an AU1/2 XR! Mines a Viper GTS copy (they use white, I've gone for a Liquid Silver job) but I'm not sure they work on my own car, since the sunroof would get in the way and spoil the overall effect.

Big fan of Cobra stripes - Shelby Cobra Mustang's, XC Cobra's and GTS Vipers are personal favourites.

Theres some AU1 'superbird' floating around like that, basically a standard white Forte or Futura with blue stripes down the middle.
Not sure if its a dealer special or what but ive seen a few around in Canberra.

Those blue cobra-striped Forte's are a joke, and a desecration to the Cobra concept. Stripes should be for performance cars, not cheap Forte's to help move them off the lot.

Yeah saw those blue striped falcons at Sinclair Ford. Not my cup of tea to be honest.

I think they're ex-renters, done up as a "Cobra" or "Superbird" as a publicity gimick.

Venom, you are right about the stripes, they look good. Especially the silver on the black.:D

You know, somebody actually complimented me on my driving today. They left a little note on the windscreen. It said, 'Parking Fine.'So that was nice.

The silver on black stripes don't look too bad. Maybe there'll be a Gibson Motorsports Special XR8 released in the Lowndes/GMS colours.

Before Ford put stipes on their cars they need to built a tough car. Not and over priced, over fibreglasses GT.

More F/G doesn't = more style!

Look at ALL the Other GT's.

Raw power only no other junk
