A common perception is that the only thing that rhymes with orange is "door hinge" when said quickly. Nine-year-old Jonah Bakken points out not only a door hinge, but an actual orange door hinge on his father's less-than-aerodynamic 1973 Volkswagen. Kyle Bakken, an assistant football coach at Concordia College, has had the car for about four years. Door hinges on newer Volkswagens are hidden inside the door for a sleeker look.

  • Karen Brown, left, and Pamela Douglas make orange construction zone signs almost daily at 3D Specialties in Fargo by placing sheets of an orange reflective material into a silk screen press and pull a blade of black ink over a template. The signs are stacked on a rack to dry for about a day and then adhered to a sheet of metal before being moved to one of the many road construction sites in the area. Brown, who has been working there for 18 years, and Douglas, five years, have earned the fun titles of "signtists" because of their years of experience there. Dave Wallis / The Forum
