If he doesn't put stripes on it, it will be just like yours. There is no such thing as original, and when something original comes along, someone else that likes it naturally does it to emulate. Seriously though, this is not an attack on you, so please don't take it as that. This forum is full of opinions, and many are good. But they are just that, opinions.
So we have people voicing not to do things because they are overdone, and when something different comes along, or something completely one off like a Ring Bros. car, there are people raging about how the car is wrecked. Seems like everything from clones be it Bullitt or Shelby, to Eleanor's, to simple once acceptable Mustang mods from Shelby including stripes are all over done these days? One could even argue that beautiful concours examples are overdone, as initially there was over a million of these made in the sixties??
To each there own, ask for opinions, but be prepared to hear things you may not like to hear. We are all different and have different tastes. That's what makes the car and classic car industry so exciting. Your car is like your own canvas. Make it art you like. Seriously this industry needs to take a few cues from the biker world and how those rides are made to the specifications of the owner. That's just my worthless opinion.
