Member of the more money than taste club! I can't imagine needing to draw any more attention to a 959! Who wouldn't notice a 959? I guess I am just a purest!

Agreed, no need for it, but nice highlights that send
the mind back for just a quick flash. Beautiful cars!

It would not be so bad if it were the paint job for a early 1970's US made muscle car, but on a 959 it's just terrible.

IMHO not wacky at all. In fact I like it. Not a white fan but I think it's done tastfully. Same scheme maybe different colors on black, very cool. But yes the car stands on it's own and doesn't 'need' anything more.

It's not bad...
You would hardly see it in a side view.
I might drive it if I had the opportunity!

Very possibly those are only decals applied on the paint....

Having said that I do not dislike it... it has some Brumos-Martini esque thing going...

I have seen much much worse...

Wayne, why not post a good pic of yours so someone could photoshop the stripes on it. Maybe a few different color combos. Then we can vote on which one you will paint the car.

I've seen far, far worse. That's not all that bad actually.

However I wouldn't do it to MY 959.
