RealRides of WNY - 1978 LeBaron

We last saw this 1978 Chrysler LeBaron Medalliona year ago at Olcott Beach (below), where it was parked in the street during the 2019 Olcott Beach Car Show. We saw it again last month, now updated with a set of new rims. The brochure described them as “Brightly finished, sporty-looking 15” forged aluminum road wheels [which] are 10% lighter than comparable steel wheels.”In case y

RealRides of WNY - 1960 Impala

This 1960 Chevrolet Impalais a bit of a departure from what you usually see at a car show/cruise night in that it’s a four-door sedan.

RealRides of WNY - 1960 Bentley

They’re very similar in appearance, with the biggest outward difference being the radiator grille shape (the Bentley’s has rounded corners, as opposed to the R-R’s straight edges which are of course topped-off by the Spirit of Ecstasy hood ornament). For decades the two marques had the same

RealRides of WNY - 1978 LeBaron

You could say that this 1978 Chrysler LeBaron Medallionexisted mainly due to Detroit’s bad habit of making cars lower, longer, and wider for too many years. I guess they had to figure it would end someday, but I don’t imagine they ever figured it would take a gas crisis to force their hand. The LeBaron (well, this version, anyway) was introduced for MY 1977 in two- and four-door versio
