RealRides of WNY - 1948 Chevy

The late 1940s’ American cars didn’t offer any where near the number of paint choices that we’d see in the following decade. This 1948 Chevrolet FleetmasterClub Coupewas lucky enough to receive one of the nicer (IMO) two-tone combinations in that year’s catalog: Live Oak Greenover Silver Gray Green. The Fleetmaster was in the middle of the ’48 Chevy lineup, above the

RealRides of WNY - 1972 Charger

I’m assuming that the vanity plate on this 1972 Dodge Chargeris referring to its prowess at stoplights rather than its looks, Lol… This two-door hardtop, seen at the 2016 Super Cruise in Medina, is finished in Top Banana with a contrasting black Canopy Vinyl Roof. For MY 1973 the Charger lost the reverse slant of the rear quarter windows, much to the relief (I imagine) of some claustr

RealRides of WNY - 1969 Ford Fairlane

Seems like you see a lot of vintage Chevelles and GTOs still on the road, but you almost never see anything like this 1969 Ford Fairlane anymore, especially a base model like this one. Yes, I know it’s a two-door hardtop, which is usually one of the pricier body styles, but in ’69 this was the second-cheapest Fairlane you could buy — at $2,499 it was only eleven bucks more than t

RealRides of WNY - 1959 Dodge Royal

(Day 4 of MoparWeek)If I were to own an old car, I’d want it to be something like this 1959 Dodge Royal — lots of kitsch and no worries about getting a parking lot ding. The Royal was in the middle of the Dodge line for ’59, between the lower Coronet and the more expensive Custom Royal. If you look closely, you’ll see that this one, seen at this summer’s Medina Super

RealRides of WNY - 1954 Studebaker

(Day 2 of WagonWeek…)It may look like a station wagon, but officially it’s a 1954 Studebaker Commander Conestoga. If you’re scratching your head, a conestoga is a covered wagon — you know, Old West-style transportation. Studebaker was founded back in 1852 as a producer of — you guessed it, wagons for farmers, miners, and the military. This here wagon was spotted at t

RealRides of WNY - 1952 Oldsmobile Super 88

Had a reader request to please feature more Oldsmobiles, and… oh look, here’s one now! It’s a 1952 Oldsmobile Super 88 Holiday Coupé, from GM’s Can Do No Wrong post-war period. Holiday is the name that Olds slapped onto all of their pillarless two- and four-doors — a new body style which caught fire in the middle of the 20th century. The Super 88 was in the mi

RealRides of WNY - Meyers Manx

Here we see Middleport's Rick and Ellen Fulwell, sitting watch over their Meyers Manx dune buggy at last night's Medina Super Cruise in the village. The registration sticker says it's a 1961 Volkswagen, but the only clues to its origin are the taillights and an unmistakable VW engine hanging out the back end. The Meyers Manx is an invention of its namesake, Bruce Meyers, who grew up in the Califor
