“As usual for a Squares Challenge month I will be sharing squares daily, and I would love it if you did the same. However if daily sounds too daunting, don’t worry. It is fine to join us weekly or even just pop in occasionally with your squares. The frequency of your squares depends on you and also your blog. All I ask is that your image has 4 equal sides, and that it reflects the theme of bright.”Becky B.
Prescott Car Show #1: Yellow Cars
Old Cars Speak

The Ingraos spend a lot of time
looking at drooling over (and sometimes buying) old cars. Vince notices every detail. I like colors. For the next few days you will see some of the brightest cars and trucks on the planet.
Jeep made over 300,000 Willys Wagons between 1946 and 1964, you don’t see many of these station wagons in bright yellow. According to Wikipedia, they were the first mass-market all-steel station wagons designed and built as a passenger vehicle. There were two at this car show. This was one of my favorites.
My first husband, Mark, drove a Super Bee exactly like this when I met him, and I thought it was the coolest car I’d ever seen. It wasn’t a good fishing car. The trunk was so big, he forgot that he had a bucket of smelt in it. The fish was well named, he found out after about a week.
I have no idea what kind of a car this is, but who can’t admire this much bright chrome?
55-57 Chevy’s abound at car shows. I think almost everyone in my age bracket either owned one or knew someone who did. I liked the deeper color of this 56 Chevy more than I did the lighter 57 in the next picture.
The first car I bought was a 57 Chevy and it cost $350. It wasn’t this color, nor was it in good shape. It quit running almost as soon as I bought it, and my friend said he would fix it. But he had a new girlfriend, and it never got fixed. It got towed to the Portland City Dump for sitting in front of our house too long.
I probably should have stored it in a barn, painted it yellow and towed it to a car show fifty-years later. I bet I could have sold it for a little more than $350. Hindsight!

- My Google Browser saved all my passwords as well, many of which I don’t need and 129 of them are risky with a bright exclamation point inside a dangerous looking red triangle.
