#BrightSquare: Bright Black Beauties

#BrightSquare Day 25

I have been sharing squares daily this month, and would love it if you did the same as we enter the final week. However if daily sounds too daunting, don’t worry, it is okay to pop in occasionally with your squares. The frequency of your squares depends on you and your blog. All I ask is that your image has 4 equal sides, and that it reflects the theme of bright.

#Prescott Car Show #6 Mostly Black Cars

Batman’s not quite a square and not a car, but he was a photographic commodity at the 2021 Prescott Car Show.

I remember riding to school in our neighbor’s Belair. Could Bel-air mean beautiful air? Her car didn’t exemplify the idea of clean air. She smoked with the windows up. I begged my mom not to let her drive me to school because even as a kid I couldn’t breathe smoky air. At the time I hated the car because of it. Now I can see it’s bright and shining beauty.

This car probably stayed in the family along with the Route 66 black beauty next to it.

My dad loved Ford “Crown Vics.” When he passed, my brother inherited his car, and I got his photos. Randy loved the car as much as my dad, I think. My husband came up to this next car at the show, and said, “I’d be happy to own this one. What do you think?”

It’s a bit of a Mary Kay car to me, but I loved it, too.

I hope you are enjoying the car show. Tomorrow will be my last post of the car show with my favorite pics of the rest of the colors.

Hope you have a great week. Don’t forget sunday stills today. 🙂

    • It was huge as you can tell. It’s taken me seven days to share even part of my pictures and none of Vince’s. We only photographed a few of the cars.


      • Yes you are right. My husband tells me that the Model T Ford was only available in black! ( He is not old enough to actually remember that but it is the sort of thing he has in his brain files)

        • LOL, I’m not either, actually, but my grandfather was, and one of our favorite pasttimes was for him to tell me how different life was in the “olden days.” Now I am way older than he was when he was telling me those stories. Imagine living through times with no electricity, cars, planes, household mechanical equipment, etc. And our children and grandchildren can’t imagine a time without computers, cell phones, and all the conveniences we take for granted now. My grandfather never took anything for granted. He was so grateful to be able to drive a car. You got me started, Anne! 🙂


  1. One of Henry Ford’s famous quotes about the Model T was, “Any customer can have a car painted any colour that he wants, so long as it is black.”
    I agree. There’s nothing sexier than a glossy black Ford!

  2. Thanks for sharing the car show photos. Our neighbors used to have a Belair station wagon back in the day too. We used to pile tons of kids in the back and the “way back”. No seat belts. It wasn’t our transportation to school – mainly to the local ice cream parlor. Thanks for bringing back such happy memories.

    • I’m glad. I remember many trips to swimming holes. I don’t remember the cars, though. Getting there was the important thing. They were station wagons.


  3. I’m enjoying seeing all these old cars 🙂 We’re toying with the notion of a Route 66 road-trip sometime in the next couple of years (travel restrictions permitting) and these certainly put me in the mood for that!

In November 2020, we sold everything and retired to the mile-high desert of Prescott, AZ. We live less than five miles from the Granite Dells, four lakes, and hundreds of trails with our dog, Kalev, and two cats, Moji and Nutter Butter. Vince's sister came with us and lives close by.
