OK, flame suit on, I'll be blunt.
IMHO Le Mans stripes are the current version of '90s resale red. 75% of the '65-'68 paint jobs I see done in the last five years sport'em, from the lowliest T-code coupe on up to real GTs. Nothing inherently wrong with Le Mans stripes (well, maybe on T-code coupes), despite the fact that they weren't that commonly seen on early Shelbys and weren't offered at all in '67 or '68. Nothing wrong with a red car, either, but when every bloody car on the planet got painted red, regardless of whatever interesting color it may have had originally, it got more than a bit tiresome.
Build what you want, it's your car, but have some imagination beyond the fad d'jour. Want graphics? Do rocker/GT stripes, do a CJ hood, do the '67 striped hood, do the offset pace car/rally stripe, C-stripes, etc., etc., etc.- there's a whole world of options. Yeah, nothing wrong with red, but when they're all red they definitely lose something.
