These blue dot tail light lenses were very popular in car enthusiasts back in the 50’s. They would show a purple cast especially from the stop light when the brakes were applied. Many state out lawed them because of their color. This is from a 1940 Chevrolet at a Car show in Sequim, Washington. The robin egg blue color on this Chevy was also very popular back then ~ Lynn

With all the beauty that exists in the Country, my goals, at this point in life, are to go out into Nature and capture it’s splendor with my camera and produce photos to share with other Folks so they can enjoy it too ~ Lynn
