Just found this baby blue wagon
« on: June 17, 2015, 08:46:40 PM »
The first car I had in high school was a Pinto wagon and I've been looking for one for many years. By luck I found this baby on Craigs list 45 minutes away. Needless to say I jumped on it.
1978 with 43,000 original miles
What do you think?

Nice car! Too clean for a guy like me though. Eventually I would start hacking on it.

Side note,
I always wondered about the origination of the term "baby blue". It can't be a good story...

You made me want to know LOL

Baby blue is a pale tint of azure, one of the pastel colors.

The first recorded use of baby blue as a color name in English was in 1892.
