RealRides of WNY - 1967 Olds Cutlass Supreme

Day Two of Black & White WeekIt’s always good to come across a basically stock-looking GM midsize car from the sixties, so you know I made a quick u-turn when I first passed this 1967 Oldsmobile Cutlass Supreme convertible a couple of weeks ago in Lancaster. Seems like most of these types of cars you see these days have at least had their wheels & tires switched out. Looking at this

RealRides of WNY - 1973 Ford Mustang

We turned the clock back an hour over the weekend, so I thought we’d also turn the calendar back all this week to this past summer’s car shows. At the time we all probably figured that the 1973 Ford Mustang convertible would be the last soft-top offering of the marque. In 1974 the original pony car re-emerged at the Mustang II built on the Ford Pinto platform in coupe and fastback form

RealRides of WNY - 1984/5 Chrysler Lebaron

Our newest RealRides photographer, my wife Tracy, snapped this photo showing a 1984/5 Chrysler LeBaron in North Tonawanda during a recent shopping trip. Wasn’t much of a difference between the 1984 and 1985 models; the ‘83s didn’t have the wraparound taillights which we see here, and the ’86 models had taillights which were rounded-off at the outside edges. When the ’

RealRides of WNY 1975 Buick LeSabre

Jim Sandoro, of the Buffalo Transportation Pierce-Arrow Museum, brought this 1975 Buick LeSabre Custom drop-top to the recent All-Buick Show at Cheektowaga Town Park. Jim’s LeSabre is one of only 5,300 convertibles made that year, making it quite rare. You can see other interesting vehicles at the museum, located in downtown Buffalo on Michigan Avenue at Seneca Street (make sure and check ou

RealRides of WNY - 1971 Pontiac LeMans Sport

Some of you are probably looking at this 1971 Pontiac LeMans Sport and saying, “That’s not a LeMans Sport, it’s a GTO!” A closer look will reveal that it is a LeMans Sport with the “optional Endura Styling Option, which consisted of a special grille and fender louvers with the GTO bumper, hood, and headlamp arrangement.” I’m okay with that, except I don&rs

RealRides of WNY - 1988 Ford Mustang

It’s always summer somewhere. Well, not always, but certainly more often than it seems to be around here when it gets to be the middle of February. So to warm you up with good thoughts, here’s a 1988 Ford Mustang LX in Cabernet Red waiting around in Kenmore for convertible weather to revisit WNY. I’ve always thought the clean lines of these early Fox platform Mustangs were among

RealRides of WNY - 1991 Infinity M30

Here’s something you don’t see every day — a 1991 Infiniti M30 convertible. I like the lines of this car — from the shoulders down. The fabric top (especially with its chintzy-looking plastic rear window) looks w-a-y out of place on what purports to be a luxury automobile. At least, as you can see from the photo below, these cars look pretty good with the top down. Found to
