The Kandy Apple Kart
1955 Ford owned and built by Roven Chariots member Dick Nielsen of Milwaukee, Wisconsin. Dick was the Manager of a Badger Paint Store in Milwaukees Southgate Shopping Mall. JP Randall saw the car in the late 1950s. He was a kid and the car made a huge impact on him; "The car was a 1955 Ford tudor painted Titian Red with scalloped white/pink blends. Lowered, 1960 Dodge taillights mounted sideways, Buick portholes in the hood, a tube grille, full interior in white with the name "Kandy Apple Kart" with a Worm coming out of an apple between the words. Sadly, I no longer have my photo collection but the reason the car is so important to me is because I got my brand new Brownie Starflash camera for Christmas and spent all of my film on that one car. After Dick found me forever all over his car, he kindly offered to give me the tour and we buzzed the local High School back and forth for awhile. It was my first time in a "for real" Custom. I was a fan of the car first, and quickly became a fan of his. He must have known how much those times meant to a 13 tear old kid."
