RealRides of WNY - 1963 Pontiac Catalina

Day 6 of Discontinued Marques Week…This 1963 Pontiac Catalinacertainly brings back memories. My Mom drove a white two-door hardtop for a few years back in the day. It was the car I was supposed to take my driver’s test in, but someone sideswiped us the night before as I waited to make a left turn in a driving (pun intended) rain storm. We decided it might be best not to show up the ne

RealRides of WNY (on the road) - 1961 Buick Special

Day 7 of Buick Week…This1961 Buick Specialis one of several cars we saw which looked like it could have been driven right out of the field at the CTC Auto Ranchin Denton, Texas. Well, maybe with a little digging. My daughter Katie and I came across it in the spring of 2013 when we stopped by the CTC as we drove back to Buffalo from Fort Hood. The ranch holds an amazing treasure trove of old

RealRides of WNY - 1949 Chevrolet

This 1949 Chevrolet DeLuxeis from the stable of WNY’s Joseph Galvin, whose dozen or so cars are all registered and insured so as to see regular street duty during our more agreeable weather months. This one looks like someone had a good time thumbing through (and making notations in) the Genuine Chevrolet Accessoriescatalog. From here we can see: chrome-plated trunk guard (which rises from t

RealRides of WNY - 1994 Plymouth Sundance

Looking at the rest of this1994 Plymouth Sundance, you have to wonder if the assembly plant guy who painted the hood did this one on his first day… or maybe his last! Lol… Aside from that, considering the age of this car, and the fact that these things (and their Dodge Shadow cousins) were pretty much throw-away Mom & Dad cars back in the day, this one seems in pretty good shape.

Could There Be A Rambler in Your Future?

Could There Be A Rambler in Your Future? By Jim CorbranYou often read about these “little old lady car” barn finds on the internet (where you’re reading this one right now, Lol…), but how often do you actually come across one in person?A short while back I heard from car show friend Steven Botsford about a very special 1958 Rambler Custom four-door sedan which was for sale

RealRides of WNY - 1963 Mercury Comet

This Mercury Cometwas seen a few years back in a Niagara Fallsdriveway, wearing a set of Ohio Historical Vehicle Plates and doing double-duty as a quasi-depository for some cleaning supplies. It appears, from the fender trim and hood script, to be a 1963model sporting a 1962 grille insert. This (1963) was the second year that the Falcon-based Comet was officially badged as a Mercury. For its first

RealRides of WNY - 1980 Buick Century

We used to come across this 1980 Buick Centurya lot back when we drove the streets of Niagara Fallson a daily basis. (And yes, we’re pretty sure it was the sameBuick Century each time, Lol.) For 1980 the Century sedan was available only with this squared-off formal roofline, but in 1978-79 it featured a fastback roofline (bottom photo)which by 1980 had been relegated to only the two-door mod

RealRides of WNY - 1966 Chevrolet Impala

There’s not much more that can be said about a 1966 Chevrolet Impala that you haven’t already heard. Over 800,000 were produced, meaning that if you, your parents, or your grandparents didn’t own one, you probably grew up in another country! Available in all the full-size body styles except two-door sedan (reserved for Bel Air and Biscayne only), in six- or eight-cylinder models,

RealRides of WNY - 1955 Chevy Two-Ten

For your approval: one 1955 Chevrolet Two-Ten four-door sedan. Because every once in a while we like to show you that no, not every surviving ’55 is a Bel Air hardtop or a Nomad station wagon. The four-doors were Chevy’s biggest sellers that year, with the Bel Air (345,372) and the Two-Ten (317,724) taking the number one and two spots respectively in sales. Saw this well-preserved exam
