Pin-Stripes, Anyone?

Has anyone considered pin-striping the Malibu. Any ideas on placement?

Honestly Nick, I agree. This is the first car I've owned that really doesn't need them.

If anything, maybe a little something around the bowtie on the trunk. But even that's a stretch.

I think it will look cleaner without strips.

Re: Pin-Stripes, Anyone?

Before our LTZ arrived the wife asked if I would put on pin-stripes. I figured, what the hell, why not. Now that we have it I wouldn't know where to put them. I like the Bu just the way she is.

Now I know someone who's very creative and artistic will come up with some arrangement that I would like, but creative and artistic isn't me.

Re: Pin-Stripes, Anyone?

Would you put pinstripes on a BMW? Leave th Malibu the way it is because it needs nothing added to it.

I agree, as you can see from my earlier post. But if someone comes up with some sort of artwork or striping arrangement that appeals to me, I may just copy the idea.

The key element for me is whether or not it blends into the body scheme of the Malibu. If somethings comes along and blends rather than overpowers or clashes, I'd surely consider it.

LTZ with pinstripes

I seem to recal pinstriping discussed here a while back, but I couldn't find the thread. I saw two LTZ's at the dealer yesterday and both had a double pinstripe down the side of the car. I fully expected to see an extra cost added to the MSRP of the car, but there was none shown. Does the LTZ come standard with pinstriping? What about the other Malibu models?

It looked okay, but I'm not sure that a clean look would be better.

I found the original Thread, Doug. They are now merged.

I would like to see the pin striping before I decide, but the clean look sure appeals to me at this point.
