Silver Mustang -- Black or Gray Stripes? | V6 Mustang Forums
In the s, FIA rules stipulated that race teams use colors which represented their countries: Italian teams painted their cars red, British green, Belgians yellow, French blue, Germans silver. American entries were painted white if frame rails were exposed they were painted blue. In some classes, especially Formula 1, the cars tended to all look alike — especially at speed.

While many snakes have stripes running the length of their body, only a few species in the United States have a distinct stripe running down the center of their back. Correctly identifying the type of snake is a simple process since the color of the stripe varies from species to species. Using a digital camera and a good field guide as a reference is a good way to get a close look at the snake without having to capture the animal, preventing possible injury to you and the striped snake. Approach the snake slowly and use the zoom on your digital camera to get a closeup picture of the snake without physically getting too close.
