Default Post up your green buggies!

I'm getting ready to paint a new body for my Z01-B, and am looking for ideas. Green is my favorite color, and it seems like no one ever uses green (I've been told its an unlucky color).

I am leaning towards just painting it solid green, but would like to see some other bodies to get some ideas from.

I lost three motors running a green body. I burned that body to get rid of the bad juju.

I was told green was unlucky when I was racing autocross. I am thinking of going green and black to help out with the luck

A green car never wins. Or that's what they say at least.

Oh hell yeah! Can't beat that deal! Mine go $55 to paint from my guy. Still not too bad considering they come out great and I usually get them back within 2 weeks.
