Here is a new one on eBay.  I tought the stripes were very nice.  It gives the GTS a particular look.

Blue on green... umm ya! not so much!
 
Stripes are different. Undecided.
I like the creativity they put in to it though!

I would have done that exhaust differently.

I would have not dropped the stripe to the bottom. I would of put in down the side of the car, like a laser stripe.
Something different, to each their own.

Thats wrong! Leave the "bumble bee" stripes to the Mopar crowd.    Ron

Those really don't work well with the body in my opinion.  Looks like a fairly solid car though.  If the interior color was changed that car could be tastefully modded pretty easily.

Indeed... a look that says, "I really wanted a Mopar, but all I could find was this Torino... it's got a Hemi, really!"
 
It's a very ghetto-rod touch that does not suit the smooth, round lines of the car, IMO. It must have taken a lot to mask, though!

Those stripes belong on a Super Bee not a Torino! As for the exhaust  well that's another story!

I saw this car for sale about a month ago...On craigslists I think.
Those stripes are a little Cheesy as is the color matching of the interior/exterior.
