This one is easy to explain. The diagonal stripes of decreasing width was used on cars sponsored by Yokohama Tires (ADVAN) back in the 1980~90s. I was even thinking of painting my Celica with the same stripes. I don't know anything about the two stripe scheme, though...

Weird. HE WAS UNLEASHING THE SECRETS.

But his answer was probably the most thoughtful I've heard yet.

It was the best answer and I'm happy to think it was right. He seems to have paid the Piper though. A little knowldege is dangerous. I should know.

Hang on, there's someone at the door....

Not sure if it's been covered before, but historically Japanese race cars from the 1960's on were always ivory white (usually with a red dot on the bonnet) to represent their national colours, a bit like the British racing green or the Italian rosso red. Maybe it's just a homage to that?

I'd post it again, it was the best answer so far and I can believe that is where it originated.

Your post-count could do with a bit of a boost, anyways ! :roll:

Dan.

During the Edo period, Samurai were a common sight. The samurai would carry banners called sashimonos which would identify the house (clan) that they fought for. Some samurai became so good that they were allowed their own banner. Anyway, when marching against warring clans, they would carry war specific banners which would include the thinner and thicker stripes. They are often referred to as "Going to Battle" stripes.

They are a symbol of strength and honor.


Id imagine that those two stripes worked their way into a variety of race cars as a hope that they would add some luck into their time on the track.

There is a clothing company out of Okayama, Japan called Momotaro Denim that uses the stripes on a line of their clothing. Below are a few images. The first is the stripes on the back pocket of their jeans and the second is their logo with Momotaro sporting a sashimono with the stripes.

Hooray Tristin! Thank you for reposting that again. Where did you get the picture from before with the stripes on an actual shield or something?

I think this is still the most plausible (and interesting) reasoning, but it doesn't explain how it made the jump to cars (to me, at least) still. Someone knows somewhere.

I think its just part of the Japanese culture. Its a great symbol of power and they are really into heritage. Im sure they see getting onto the track as "going to battle" so it makes sense that it would show up. Its like us adding stars and stripes or eagles to our vehicles (except for some reason its looked down upon to be rocking the American flag on anything).

Im not 100% sure which specific image your looking for, but here is one I think you wanted and an additional one as well. Oh and the "shield" is the sashimono I mentioned which is the banner:

Whatever the reasoning, the pictures sure are cool.
