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

RealRides of WNY - Henry J, c1953

Day 2 of Compacts Week…Before American compacts from Detroit started showing up in the late 1950s, there were a few others which tried (and failed) to get buyers to drive smaller, American-made cars. This Henry J, c1953, is one of them. Named after aluminum and real estate magnate/automotive executive Henry J. Kaiser, the Henry J was produced by Kaiser Motors as a companion to its larger Ka

RealRides of WNY - 1960 Mercury Monterey

Day 4 of Discontinued Marques Week…This 1960 Mercury Monterey is another one of those quirky cars from the 1960s — a full-size two-door pillared sedan (probably) bought mostly by cost-conscious families and businesses looking for a company car a rung-up from the usual Ford/Chevy/Plymouth. The front and rear windscreens on the ’60 Mercs bear a closer look. The front windshield cu

RealRides of WNY - 1983 Buick LeSabre

Day 6 of Buick Week…It’s not often these days that you run across one of these big GM two-doors, but there were over 22,000 of the 1983 Buick LeSabre Limitedcoupes produced for model year 1983 (plus another 6,974 Custom coupes). These downsized two-doors debuted for 1977 and continued in production until 1991. In their brochure, Buick asked (and answered) questions about the LeSabre:

RealRides of WNY - 1953 Hudson

Came across this 1953 Hudson at a weekly Cruising on the Qevent one Tuesday evening last May on Queen Street in Niagara Falls, Ontario. Judging bythe faux hood scoop, this one appears to be a Super Wasp, although the usual chrome side trim isn’t on this one. Hudson advertised the Wasp as “The Lower-Priced Running Mate to the Hornet.”The Super Wasp was a step up from there, having

RealRides of WNY - 1969 Buick Special

Back when it was new, this 1969 Buick Special Deluxetwo-door sedan (or as Buick called it, a thin-pillar coupe) was the least expensive offering out of Flint, with a starting MSRP of just $2,562. Four-door sedans and station wagons had a wheelbase four inches longer than the coupe’s 112-inch length. It came standard with a 250CID inline six (built by Chevrolet), a column-mounted three-speed

RealRides of WNY (on the road) - 1963 Ford Falcon Futura

By the time this Rose Beige 1963 Ford Falcon Futurahit the showrooms, all of the pillared sedans in the lineup had the Thunderbird-inspired squared-off roofline, which was previously reserved for the top-line model only. Also new for 1963 were the 2-door hardtop and convertible Futura models; and halfway through the model year, the 1963-1/2 Falcon Sprint hardtop & convertible were introduced w
