RealRides of WNY #2416 ......................... 1984 Buick Skylark

We were talking yesterday (you werehere yesterday, right?) about how all of Chrysler’s K-cars seem to have vanished. Today’s RealRideis this 1984 Buick Skylark Custom, one of General Motors’ X-body cars (along with the Chevy Citation, Pontiac Phoenix, and Oldsmobile Omega). Produced from 1980-1985, almost a million Skylarks left the factory. Again, where are they all? The 1984 Sk

RealRides of WNY #2413 ......................... 1979 Concord

The brochure called this 1979 AMC Concord DL“…elegant comfort and an excellent value.”Some might opine that the “…velveteen crushed fabric”seating surfaces reminded them of their grandmother’s living room sofa (hand raised!). Those who wanted an upgrade could move up to the DL Limited and get “genuine leather with corduroy accents.”The Concor

RealRides of WNY #2411 (on the road) - 1951 Meteor

What’s a 1951 MeteorClub Coupewhich resides in Temple, Texasdoing here on the RealRides of WNYpage? Simple enough answer. It’s owned by former Hamburg resident Ron Germann (Hamburg High School Class of 1976). It might be a foreign car to the rest of the folks in Texas, but to someone who grew up here in WNY it’s not all that unusual. The original flathead with CANADA stamped on t

RealRides of WNY #2400 - 1953 Ford

The 1953 Ford Mainline Tudorsat at the bottom of the Dearborn manufacturer’s model lineup that year. As you can see from the photos, it didn’t even get bright moldings around the front and rear windscreens, instead opting for plain black rubber. It isn’t quite as stark looking on a black car like today’s RealRide, but check out the brochure illustration below and see how th

RealRides of WNY #2362 (on the road) - 1966 Volvo

Our RealRidesPennsylvania connection photographed this 1966 Volvo 122Sand sent these photos along last year. Ex-WNY-er Rick Lapp was vacationing in Camden, Mainewhen he came across this pristine Swedish sedan; we DID however deduct points for him not noticing the VW Vanagon camper parked just ahead in the next row! Lol… While doing a little research on the 122S, we came across this very car

RealRides of WNY #2330 - 1973 Nova

A sign in the window of this 1973 Chevrolet Nova SS(inset)tells us it’s still with its original owner, who bought it from Sweeney Chevrolet on Main Street in Clarence (now the site of the Clarence Secure Storage facility). For model year 1973 the SS wasn’t a distinct series, but rather was an option package available for the Nova & Nova Custom coupe & hatchback. According to th

RealRides of WNY - 1973 AMC Gremlin X

This 1973 AMC Gremlin Xis owned by Orchard Park’s Connor Kolband his uncle, Dave Hulin. You may have seen it recently gracing the top of the “AMC Hornet, Gremlin, Concord, Eagle, and Spirit”Facebook page (bottom photo). We saw it in person at the Orphans in Orchard Park Car Show(where it won a Best in Classaward) which was held at West-Herr Chevrolet earlier this month. This one

RealRides of WNY (on the road) - Ford Maverick, c1977

Came across this base model Ford Maverick, c1977, last summer while visiting Seattle. Here’s what we know about this car (which, if it is indeeda 1977, would be one of the last Mavericks, as they werereplaced in 1978 by the Fairmont): it’s wearing a vintage vehicle license plate on the back, but a regular plate with a totally different number on the front; the c-pillar is sporting a h

RealRides of WNY - 1956 Chevrolet

Of the famed Tri-Fives, I’ve always preferred these (maybe because I’m alsoa middle child). I’m guessing this particular 1956 Chevrolet Two-Tenwas involved in some sort of Bring Your Classic Car to Work Day, as we found it a few weeks ago parked in one of the many industrial parking lots of Tonawanda. The Two-Ten itselfwas a middle child — positioned between Chevy’s b

RealRides of WNY - 1966 Ford Falcon

Day 6 of Compacts Week…This 1966 Ford Falcon Futura Sports Coupeis one of 182,669 Falcons produced that year. Sounds like a respectable number, until you look at Falcon’s debut year of 1960 when 473,841 of them left the factory. By 1966 the Falcon’s numbers had to have been hurt by the sporty Mustang, which sat in the same showroom and could be had for only $88 more than the buc
