Kermit the Del Ray

1955 Chevy Del Ray

What’s with all the intense, in-your-face colors we’ve been seeing lately? Maybe it’s the sick pleasure that goes along with irritating neurotic resto-freaks who don’t have a sense of adventure. Or maybe it’s the fact that 8 percent of men these days are colorblind. For Marlo Sander, comments like “Boy, is that ugly” bring joy into his audacious-automobile–loving heart. “Hey, at least they’ll never forget me!” he says with a chuckle.

He could probably give you a million reasons why it’s a good idea to dip a ’55 Chevy Del Ray (that was the Super-Stripper model in those days) in a shade of loud. The color definitely sets it apart from plain-Jane shoebox show queens (we couldn’t help but notice him at the Car Craft Nationals in St. Paul!). And no, he’ll probably never lose it at the mall.

After parting with his first car in high school, a ’55 Chevy handed down from his grandfather, Marlo didn’t want to lose his precious dream car again. When he obtained this “second chance,” he decided to fulfill all of his teenage car fantasies that minimum wage had never allowed.
