My only input on this is coming from a Challenger SRT which I destripped and put black wheels on (gloss). Mustangs do not stand out in a crowd. Even my Shelby GT-500, only auto enthusiasts know what the hell it is otherwise it to them just looks like a Mustang with Snake emblems on it(no stripes on it screaming GT-500). I can for sure see the point of striping to make the Mustang "pop" out. I do plan to leave mine in the "sleeper" look though, just looks clean without stripes. Sure it's not as big of a head-turner as the SRT was, but it does turn the heads of any auto-enthusiast.
