Ruby Tuesday - Top Down



Ruby Tuesday arrives on Labor Day in the US and Canada. Although the the calendar suggests the seasonal change arrives on September 23, the rest of us bid farewell to Summer after today. So for Mary's fun meme, we look at the classic ruby summer accoutrement, the convertible. 


A 1955 Chevrolet Bel Air, in its top-down pose. Notice how colors other than mocha and gray are in the insides today, but ruby even exists on the steering wheel. Neat style from back then, see stylish rubies at Mary's meme. And, to those that celebrate, enjoy your Labor/Labour Day!

The Chevy Bel Air is one of my favorite vehicles, Ralph. As for laboring today? None for me, thank you!

RAINBOW DITTY

Dibs of yellow and dabs of red—
Rainbow colors go to my head!

Dashes of gold and crimson too—
Painted like this I can’t feel blue!

The cars from this time are ART in my view. I live the two colored cars and wheels - the red steering wheel is just awesome!
Have a nice week Ralph :)

Some sort of automotive theme, methinks!

"Bel-Air," and I can't remember the catch-phrase...

I was only 7, but I remember the Bel Air well. A great car. I wish cars had more color these days instead of the generic colors that are available today. Bright and colorful--full of personality-that's what a car should be. Have a nice week. Mickie :)

Be still my heart!
Give me an old Chevy any day. I think bright red to go with my red hair would do just fine. :)
An excellent Ruby choice Ralph!!!

Hope you had a wonderful holiday!

Saw one driving back from an event yesterday. How it gleamed in the sunshine, drawing me back to when I first became aware of cool cars. The Bel-air was new then!
