The faux wood isn't as bad as it could be...I think a single round flat hood could pull it off actually.

I'm diggin' the ivory interior on the blue one too

On the other hand, the narrow white stripes on virgos isn't working at all

the blue font driver hockey stick trim looks to be from a sedan/coupe rear.
