Attached is a query that selects the same color cars from two tables. What I am trying to do is change slightly. I want to use checkboxes (yes/No) for the three color cars (Red, Blue and Green) in each table. So, if a user selects (checks) red from table 1 and Red from table two, the query brings up theses similar choices.

That's a very rough sample.
It almost seems like homework--which Experts are not permitted to complete
What you are looking for is a parameterized union query

select * from LotCars1 where iif(forms!someform!chkRed1=true,carcolor="red",1=2)

Union ALL

select * from LotCars1 where iif(forms!someform!chkBlue1=true,carcolor="Blue",1=2)

Union ALL

select * from LotCars1 where iif(forms!someform!chkGreen1=true,carcolor="Green",1=2)

Union ALL

select * from LotCars2 where iif(forms!someform!chkRed2=true,carcolor="red",1=2)

Union ALL

select * from LotCars2 where iif(forms!someform!chkBlue2=true,carcolor="Blue",1=2)

Union ALL

select * from LotCars2 where iif(forms!someform!chkGreen2=true,carcolor="Green",1=2)


See someform and Query1 on your returned sample
