    Just bought a 1996 red RT10 with the Ketchup and Mustard. This one has a yellow strip down the middle. Is this factory or was it after market? From my reading i thought the strip only came on the 1996 GTS. Any thoughts? Sorry I don't have any good photos of it yet...

    You are correct...on the red/yellow 96 R/T 10's there were no stripes...period.
    Are your stripes vinyl or paint?

    As an aside, the other two 1996 R/T 10 color schemes had unique stripes that were vinyl covered with clearcoat.
    Black cars had tapered silver stripes and the white cars had tapered blue stripes.

    Those stripes remind me of a red/yellow R/T 10 that raced in Viper days in the late 1990's. It MAY have said "Centipede" on the side. Others may recall more facts...or correct my "recollections".

    I have not seen the car yet but my dad thinks the stripes are painted and clear coated over. I am picking it up Thursday night and doing the Woodward Dream Cruise with it before I bring it back to northern MI. I sure I will stop by the Viper section on Saturday! Thanks for all the info!

    The wheels are correct, but the stripes are not. Its really
    a matter of taste though - they dont devalue the car in
    any way. If you like them, keep them - no harm, no foul.
