I like Laguna Seca Blue when it looks like the first pic but not when it changes to a greenish color

Just buy an LSB and only drive it at night or when it's cloudy. LOL. In bright sunlight it becomes much more pastel.

Yup LSB is my favourite colour of all time. I have two Kyosho models in that colour, and on my shelf they look greeny, in the light or under flash, POP it's so intense.
