You're Sitting On A Gold Mine!!!

Do you know that FERRARI charges about $3000 for the stripes on the CHALLENGE STRADALE? And FORD charges about $5000 for the stripes on the new FORD GT?

GT/E stripes

Redroze;
The GT/E also had the hood painted just like the US spec'd Rallye.

Pete's Reproduction Stripes

See the latest photo of my Opel Ascona Station Wagon, with my groovy new stripes... a local guy (here in S.E. Wisconsin) made this for me, and I was charged only $95.00. He said he could make any color, any logo, and he says, "name the car, he can do it".

And it takes one day.

So if anyone is interested, I'd be glad to help you, just email me.

Original??

Pete - Are those stripes a custom job? Or are they a copy of some rare Euro version of the Ascona? -Scott

Stripes

Pete;
Here's something very close to what I want done. In fact I'm having it done, just waiting to hear from the guy.

Stripes

Pete;
Mine is the 74 "signal blue" very similar as the blue that Richard Petty uses. The stripe I want will be black, but, it probably can be made in other colors. At the back, where yours says "Ascona 1900", mine will have "SPORTWAGON" and like yours, allow the body color to show through. I also want a matching stripe to go across the hatch, with "SPORTWAGON" off to one side. This picture is from an old article from which Opel was developing the "Sportwagon". As you can see, this Wagon is an older one like yours.
