#BrightSquare: Even Dark Cars Can Be Bright at the 2021 Prescott Car Show

#BrightSquare#24

“ All I ask is that your image has 4 equal sides, and that it reflects the theme of bright.”

Prescott Car Show #5

We are almost at the end of the month of bright squares. My friend Norah Colvin loves purple, so this two tone, two door 1955 Chevy is for her. There were not many purple cars at the Prescott Car Show last Saturday but this one is a beauty.

My husband’s dad let Vince “fix” his junk two door 1952 Chevy when he was in junior high school. Once he sanded the dashboard and painted it white. Vince had hoped to get the car when he was old enough to drive. One day zigzagging his bike up the steep hill to his house, he noticed something amiss with “his” car. As he got closer, he could see that the entire backend was smashed, pushed in clear to the back seat. What happened?

Someone had parked their car further up the hill without setting the emergency brake or putting it into gear. Vince’s dreams were dashed.

The next few pictures might have been from the most unusually decorated car at the show.

There were shiny bits. It looked like someone had sanded it down, and put a glossy coat on top. You will all remember the owner’s dog resting under the back bumper from blue day.

The owners of this final prize for the day spent only a little effort to shine it up. It was a true hippy van from the 60s. I gave it a tie dye background in Canva by removing the background and replacing it with another. This low rider was so low to the ground, when I removed the background it appeared to be floating in a zombie dream. I should have tilted it!

Only two more major colors at the car show to finish out a week of bright cars. Over the final days this month I want to take you on the amazing hiking trail we went on April 23. One couple said we were “adorable” because Vince had to hold my hand several times and help me up and down a slippery climb.

see you all tomorrow. happy adventures.

    • Vince and I went our own directions and got back together and shared what we saw. It was amazing how we noticed such different things. We met up in several places accidentally where the cars warranted a lot of looking! 🙂

      • I love it when Chris and I go to car shows. She has her camera and I have mine. We see so differently. Even when taking photos of the same vehicle, we never take a photo the same. It’s fun seeing through her eyes. That maybe why I like blogging so much, I get a glimpse of how other people see. 😀

        • That’s exactly how Vince and I are. His used to all be more artistic than mine. Now, I think we are even. Either way, we took a lot of pictures and no two were alike.

    • Thanks, Jo! Vince wishes the pretty Chevy was mine! 🙂 Stones can be very slippery! These stones were covered with a fine layer of silt which made them even slipperier. My posts for the last days of Becky’s Bright Squares will be perfect for your Monday Walks. Is there a special post to link, or just tomorrow’s post?

      • Hiya darlin 🤗 I don’t plan a walk this week so it’s best to link to the last one, the Azulejos, but you can just link to the Jo’s Monday walk page if you prefer. Thanks darlin 🤗💕

        • Okay. You are smart to exercise the “Rest” part of Restless Jo. I am so tired after yesterday’s jaunt, that today’s 4,000 step walk down the hill with Puppy Girl about wore me out. Yikes. I’m not keeping up with you 13,000 steps a day ladies.
