What car colors are most popular in the United States?

Q: I’m a a fan of ’60s and ’70s muscle cars, and I love bright colors. In the past seven years, I’ve owned cars of varying hues, including yellow, red, blue, and copper as well as the ubiquitous white and silver. What car colors are most popular in the United States? What about down through the decades? How about other countries? Or is it mostly sport/muscle cars that are available in a rainbow of options?

Frustrated about friends tagging you in unflattering photos? Here’s what to do.

Q: I will readily admit I am vain person, but not obsessive about it. I am reasonably new to Facebook. I like it, except I have a slight problem with some of my friends posting pictures of me that are not very flattering. And, they tag me with pictures of things I am definitely not particularly interested in. One of my colleagues tells me, it is what it is and if you are on Facebook, that is what you can expect. I have another colleague who says I can block what is put on my own page from others. Another one tells me to ask my friends who have been posting the not-so-wonderful pictures to either show me the proposed picture or not post it at all if it isn’t totally flattering. Etiquette wise, what should I do?

Here’s what happened to this old-time Belleville photo studio

Q: I recently was given a photograph of the Ridge Prairie Saloon, which was owned by a relative, Henry Becherer. The saloon was on the southwest corner of U.S. 50 and Old Collinsville Road, directly behind what was The Dandy Inn. On the lower right-hand corner of the photo is the name Reime Studio, Belleville, IL., which photographed the owner and patrons outside the saloon. Now, with the recent closing of The Dandy Inn, I’m curious about Reime Studio.
