My first husband and I used to go to a lot of car shows way back in the mid 60's, and it was there I first saw a car painted in candy Apple red. Oh so shiny, oh so very very red. Up till then I'd always been fondest of blue cars, but that changed when I saw that car. In 1964 we bought a red (though not candy apple) 427 Ford. We were also into drag racing and I loved driving that powerful beast, I surely did.
