Old, New, Borrowed and Blue

This week the lens-artist challenge #58 from Patti Moed is Old, New, Borrowed and Blue. On a wedding day the Bride should wear something from each of these categories for good luck. But as Patti points out these things can bring good luck any time. So here goes!

OLD

Back in the day transpost was in carriages like this one seen in the Green Meadows class at the Royal Winter Fair.

Then along came Mr. Ford and his Model A. I took this photo at the Antique and Classic Car show in Stouffville today.

But the horse was not entirely forgotten as can be seen in this 1965 Mustang.

And here is a 1949 Mercury made the same year I was born. So….I guess….Older.

BORROWED and also BLUE

The Road Runner “borrowed” its’ name from the cartoon character.

It had a car horn that sounded like the “beep beep” the cartoon character was famous for and even the inside of the engine is blue.

NEW

Here is an old car with very new artwork on it.

Finally an old 1947 Fire Truck and the version from today.

    I am still musing the “beeb, beeb” Road Runner car horn. I can’t imagine it was very effective, apart from making people laugh!

      I have to admit I don’t remember this but my husband David said right away ” oh look its got the roadrunner beep beep horn: . I think safety issues were not foremost back in the day.
