The silver or white would look good on the blue.

The problem is that white racing stripes look fantastic on a Vista Blue Mustang, but don't go with a black shaker hoodscoop. Black stripes (particularly the '70 Mach1 style stripes) would look great with a black shaker hoodscoop and would look pretty good on Vista Blue. But white stripes make Vista Blue "pop" way more than black stripes.

i have been thinking that black stripes would go very well with my black and vista blue thing that i have going. But i love white stripes on vista blue. Maybe even more than white stripes on torch red :hihi:

I just decided I didnt want to look like everyone else, so I just did the rocker panel stripes, but white stripes of any kind on the "vista blue" looks best IMO

I'm a fan of silver or dark graymyself. I personnally don't think the contrast created with the white strips and the shaker is that bad. I think it actually shows the shaker off. Black strips belong on light colored s197s IMHO (Lime, White, Silver, Windveil Blue,). But in the end, you should do what you wanna do.

I wanted something different than the usual white stripes and the matte black was a surprise. Gonna add a matte black hood scoop this spring.
