Candy Apple Chevy

There were lots of classics lining the parking lot at the recently held 10th Annual WCSH6 Auto Show. Of all the cars and trucks there, this one stole my eye. It's a 1940 Chevrolet painted what I'd call candy apple red. When I stop by these shows, I'm always envious of the owners polishing their 'babies'. I'd love to roll down the avenue in this beauty, see it parked in my garage, but whether I'd have the time, desire and the expendable cash to bring it back to life is debatable. Dad always had a line of second hand cars in the driveway to take on his night jobs in Falmouth and in the city. But point of information: they NEVER looked like this!

  10. Beautiful old Chevy. I would love to have a nice old car like that to cruise around in on Sunday after church. Many years ago (1964) I bought a 1948 Buick Super from an old lady that was just cherry - not a scratch on it, original wool flannel upholstery. Like a dummy I sold it a few years later to get something more dependable. It takes a little extra money to keep a car around for fun. I have been kicking myself ever since.
