What Color To Paint the Z

Guys I about to repaint my car, well it would have been done already If I could decide what color. No greens, no black, no yellow, and no maroons. That about covers it. Im between3 or 4 right now and would make it a poll but Im curious to what answers you would give, given an infenite scope.

So what color, post a pic to?
Its going on a 97 Z28, car will have an SS hood and Spoiler too. Car is also rockin a different set of wheels but they are powdercoated silver so they will go with any color and I dont plan on keeping them so that doesnt matter.
Here is a pic of the car.

The headlight coves, grill arear and canopy will all stay black like a stock Z28.

Either a dark grey/borderline charcoal or a royal/marine blue, or a dark orange.

I will not be doing stripes.

I will look at any color, for a long time I wanted absolute red (the color for the release serios 1.0 tC).

Id prefer to stay from whites, although they look great on an LT1 Z, there are too many of them and for what im paying t have it painted I dont want to look like every other Camaro.

Newyorker the wheels are a discontinued LG World Challenge but I doubt I will have them very long, seeing as the shape they are in I can make a decent profit of selling them. (I got them for 350 with tires + refinishing) and they were over 1200 new without tires and they ar rare as hell now)

No blacks, no browns, and no greens.

You could pay homage to the 1st gens (I think Yenkos and COPOs had them) with some hockey stripes. Or pay homage to the third gens with primer and duct tape.

You're not really not leaving many options. You've excluded a lot of colors, and you want to stand out but not look dumb. If you stand out, there's a good chance that a lot of people will think it looks dumb. It seems to me you've already figured out what you want.
