Need some ideas

As some of you may know, I stuffed my E30 into the wall at Mosport. Now she needs to be rebuild/repainted...etc.
I am looking for some paint job ideas for a track/race car. It doesn't even have to be an E30, but obviously preferred.
If you have pics of nice looking track/race cars, please post them up or PM.

Thank you!

Flat black! Looks mean as hell, and manybe some white accents, just for contrast, like the rollcage and rims...

Audi LeMans race cars color scheme or the old McLaren Mercedes F1 color scheme. they were sooooo dope. black and silver with some red is a killer combo

My personal pipe dream is to paint a car in BMW Group A scheme - all white with some M colored stripes and a schematic-type drawing of the internals on the outside of the car. I can't find a good pic of a car but here's a pic of a model painted to scale:

I was thinking about something like that for sometime too... I wonder how much would something like that cost. Is it actually painted on or just stickers?

2-tone.

Some combo of navy blue and avus blue. Avus on top, Navy on bottom? Also, possibly bring that double pinstriping back along the bodyline to seperate the two colours if you like.

I am thinking that the base color will be white and then just take it from there... but there is something special about black too...
