  Forgot where I read it but...  (possibly in 'Motor Racing' by SCH Davis, 

  Some teams' versions of "British racing green" were sooo dark as to be almost 
indistinguishable from black due to the (even then apparently) superstitions 
about racing a green car.  
  My one real doubt about this would be that if that was a current superstition 
when the colors were handed out, then why did the British teams accept the 
'green' assignment???
