I appreciated the historical context even if it was drowned in sarcasm.

Actually the first production car with a Hemi was a DeSoto not Chrysler. However Chrysler eventually bougt Desoto.

So am I. I am just tracing the roots of the stripes on cars farther back than you did, that doesn't make it less relevant. Before there were stripes on cars they were in other places and then just copied to a cars paint, but the stripes did not originate at the same time as the paint scheme did, they were remembered from previous encounters and thought to look good on a car. Private citizens put stripes on cars before any manufacturer did it.
