Decades before the first maroon buggy appeared in Raleigh, the Fire Chief and Assistant Chief drove cars closer to purple than red. See below images, which may or may not show the same car. Why that color? Presumably the same reason as today: it's cheaper to purchase a stock color than a custom one. Yeah, it's a freaky at first. Mike recalls his double take some years ago when he first saw such colors in Minneapolis.
