    STRIPE

    ok, "margie", my `57 sedan, is "1978 chevrolet monza red/orange". got her now for 11 years. getting a little tired of looking at, seems it/i could use a little change. so, finding out monday for a 10 inch wide stripe, hood, roof, trunk. white, with about a 1/4 inch black on the edges. has anyone ever see the book, "racing the family sedan". well, i great lookin 7 is on the cover. with this wide of a stripe, always loved it,,,,,,,,,, so, i think i`m going to jump in. as for that car, it`s "big john" somebody. red, white, and blue. super kool. i got the idea of white, trimmed in black, for i have "331 cu. in." on each lower front fender. kinda stands out with that red/orange.,,,,, thanx.

    John Barkley's 57

    I remember that car from when this issue came out:

    This is John Barkley's car now:

    I like the stripe; I think the broad white background bracketed by the blue flanks helps set it off. Red, white, and blue, how can one beat that?
    Regards, Doug

    I'm suspecting Big John didn't have sufficient paint in any one color to do the whole car, which led to this paint scheme...
