I always liked this one because it didn't give a flip about the green car superstition.

My dad grew up a NASCAR fan and my uncle and gramps got into it for a time, so little by little I got some NASCAR views in.  My thoughts, unranked:

 

Labonte classic

Dale Earnhardt is timeless

Liked the Dale Jr baseball car:

Jeff Gordon's rainbow Dupont cars were always cool:

And perhaps the most famous, Richard Petty's STP:

I'll second all of these and add some more of my favorites that I can remember off the top of my head. Disclaimer: (Jeff Gordon is my favorite driver so I would probably put most of his paint schemes on my list)

i thought this was cool because it's the two cars together and I had forgotten that Earnhardt's car was red inside

Also, I love the square body styles of the 70's and 80's 

 

Im sure there are more I'm forgetting but that what this thread is for.

All time favorite. Loved that the transition from white to red to light blue were made up of little V's. Just an outstanding look.

 

I also LOVE that Alan Kulwicki made this list. Polish victory laps for us all! On Wisconsin!

Can someone please change the thread title to "Best NASCAR paint schemes" or something similar? Reading "Nascars" used as a noun hurts. A lot.

 

Having said that, I always loved the Texaco Havoline paint schemes. As seen here driven by Juan Pablo Montoya.

His ride from the 2009 Brickyard 400 was also really cool, throwing back to his IndyCar days.

Too bad he wasn't allowed to win that day.
