In 1982, Delorean Cadillac in Cleveland Ohio had some Delorean’s on the lot that they were having trouble selling. Rather than giving them away at a loss or sitting on them forever, they decided they might sell if they were more colorful. The problem is painting stainless. So Delorean Cadillac had PPG come up with a paint that would adhere to the stainless. They succeeded and before long, several DMC’s were painted a variety of fun colors like red, purple, and blue. http://blog.1aauto.com/2011/06/30/you-want-to-see-the-candy-apple-red-delorean/#more-6395
