BTW, the classic model of Hooker cars is orange, but the Tacoma
plant for a number of years had red versions of the same paint scheme.
I think Atlas did this scheme at one point on their 11,000 gallon car.

This may be the car that Tony refers to.

It was a special run by Atlas for Peterson Supply, Portland, Oregon.
Unfortunately now sold out, but I can attest they may still be found
at swap meets, etc. As I ran across one a few years ago at Timonium.
