Default Pin-striping

I used to see a lot more pin-striped cars even up to a few years ago, but seems a rarity these days.
Has pin-striping gone "out of style?"

I can't even believe they were ever "in style"

To me it's like saying herpes was once in style.

Come on guys - don't hold back - say what you really feel!
I happen to agree, though up until about 5 years ago, I thought they looked ok. Now, I tend think of them as something overindulgent and tacky.

Well that is explainable, once someone sells a billion dollars worth of Mary Kay products you get a free pink Q5, The Pink Cadillac was so yesterday.

... was a 1990 Acura Integra sedan, purchased used in 1993. I employed a heat gun, Goo Gone, and elbow grease to remove them ASAP.

Hmmmmm.... You are giving me ideas. Imagine a thin subtle black pin-striping on my white Q5. All along the sharper creases.

I always thought white pin-striping on my black BMW motorcycle looked awesome. Maybe black-on-white will also do it for me.

I am not doing anything this weekend...
