BLACK KNIGHTS on FIREBALL MALIBU VLOG

You may know by now that Fireball had a severe Camera Malfunction. So, today it’s the Best Cars in BLACK! CLICK TO WATCH! New Vlogs start Friday including MOVIE CARS, WHEELS AND WAVES & what Fireball’s driving BELOW! a 1938 Hot Rodded Ford Convertible from THE MURPHY AUTO MUSEUM!

About the 1938 FORD… The 1938 recession hurt Ford sales, as did Ford’s continuing of the 1937 cars, including most body panels.

1938 DeLuxe models were differentiated with a heart-shaped grille, though standard models retained the 1937 look.

The fading Slantback sedan design was cancelled for good. Only a V8 was offered, either a 60 hp V8 or an 85 hp V8. A new dash was used, with recessed controls for safety.

The 1938 trucks were finally updated, having continued with 1935 looks. Changes included a vertical oval grille and substantial fenders and bumpers.

About ORANGE from WIKI…

Orange is the colour of oranges, carrots, pumpkins and apricots.

It is between red and yellow in the spectrum of light, and on the traditional painters’ colour wheel. It is named after the fruit of the same name.

In Europe and America, surveys show that orange is the colour most associated with amusement, the unconventional, extroverts, warmth, fire, energy, activity, danger, taste and aroma, Protestantism, the autumn and Allhallowtide seasons, as well as having long been the national colour of the Netherlands and the House of Orange.

It also serves as the political colour of Christian democracy political ideology and most Christian democratic political parties.

In Asia it is an important symbolic colour of Buddhism and Hinduism.

The colour orange is named after the appearance of the ripe orange fruit.

The word comes from the Old French orange, from the old term for the fruit, pomme d’orange.

The French word, in turn, comes from the Italian arancia, based on Arabic nāranj, derived from the Sanskrit naranga.

The first recorded use of orange as a colour name in English was in 1512, in a will now filed with the Public Record Office.

Prior to this word being introduced to the English-speaking world, saffron already existed in the English language.

Crog also referred to the saffron colour, so that orange was also referred to as ġeolurēad (yellow-red) for reddish orange, or ġeolucrog (yellow-saffron) for yellowish orange.

Alternatively, orange things were sometimes described as red such as red deer, red hair, the Red Planet and robin redbreast.

In ancient Egypt artists used an orange mineral pigment called realgar for tomb paintings, as well as other uses.

It was also used later by Medieval artists for the colouring of manuscripts.

Pigments were also made in ancient times from a mineral known as orpiment.

Orpiment was an important item of trade in the Roman Empire and was used as a medicine in China although it contains arsenic and is highly toxic.

It was also used as a fly poison and to poison arrows. Because of its yellow-orange colour, it was also a favourite with alchemists searching for a way to make gold, in both China and the West.

Before the late 15th century, the colour orange existed in Europe, but without the name; it was simply called yellow-red.

Portuguese merchants brought the first orange trees to Europe from Asia in the late 15th and early 16th century, along with the Sanskrit naranga, which gradually became part of several European languages: “naranja” in Spanish, “laranja” in Portuguese, and “orange” in English.
