Default new paint... to color change or not

So I'm in the process of reviving my car (94 base 3k). The paint is trashed and I'm going to paint it. But I'm undecided if I should leave it the same color it is now (green with a black hood and roof) or change the color to a navy blue. The green and black top is subtle and while I would paint the door jams, I wouldn't really be able to do the engine bay. Just wondering what everyones thoughts were.

The car is no show car or performance machine by any stretch, and its not something I'm ever going to sell, ive had it too long and been through too much with it to get rid of it.

agreed, go custom and make her unique if you're committed to repainting anyway.

I like the GT-R colors as well, just don't do a Lamborghini Murciélago green - please.

I'm planning a matt black plasti-dip for my car in the future.

BBBBOOOOO on you green haters!!! Keep it green. the New Zealand green from the '98s is probably the best in our productions. But can't go wrong with Jag's British Racing green either.

But if you want blue, GM's C5 zo6 had a nice dark blue and I noticed a Alfa Romeo Guilia in a dark blue this morning that looks reallly good. They're both metallic so the pop a little more.

Ive always wanted it dark blue, but the green has grown on me over the years. I'm leaning toward blue, but I got love for the green...

luckily I have a few more months to change my mind back and forth 100 times before I lay any paint
