Scope out the black stripe down the side. We just couldn’t live with the standard SS hood Band--Aids, and instead chose the 1969--model stripes. They’re available in white, black, or red from OPG. The El Camino versions will fit 1968--1972 models, but the Chevelle ones won’t work properly on 1970--1972 models because of the fender bulges added to those cars. Look for a one--page story in this issue to show you how to stick the stripes properly.
