There has been debate on this topic for a while.

Do Graphics Make Falcons Look Rice?

Not like airbrushed murals or anything. Like ya tribal and stripe graohics. Just the vinal ones that you get at places like Current Trendz and The Spoiler Shop.

Naa. I have never considered graphics of any kind. I would rather have the worlds lowest car! After talking to some ppl, it seems that there is a fairly split opinion on the subject and I was just curious as to what other had in there head

Considered it and then I saw the size of the compressor needed. Not enough room with the stereo!

Once again, Agreed. Those stripes look nuts..... On the right car. The GT's and XR's have charactaristics to set the stripes off!

Only Falc I've ever seen with graphics in the flesh was a White turbo ED.
It had two colour, tear drop style vinyls on the bonnet.
Blue and turqouise from memory.
It looked good IMO, but then he had the balls to back it up as well!

I agree, stripes on anything other than the GT just doesn't look right.

I wouldn't mind a silhoutte of a Falcon on the rear quarter of my car. It would have to brushed.

Stickers = RICE!!!

I dunno, some decals can look pretty cool. I did some tribal art ones for my car a little while back for s**t and giggles, and because I had a stack of vinyl which wasnt being used. I thought it turned out rather well

So I guess it is each to their own, I like graphics/decals which are suited to the car and owner.
