RealRides of WNY - 1971 Charger

When we saw this 1971 Dodge Charger R/Tback in 2017 at the annual Labor Day car show on the river in the City of Tonawanda, I was pretty sure the color was Plum Crazy. Looking at the photos all these years later, now I’m not so sure. Could be the lighting, could be the camera, could be the computer screen… could be my memory! However, looking at the paint chart, as well as photos of t

RealRides of WNY - 1970 Sport Fury GT

Came across this rarely seen (these days) 1970 Plymouth Sport Fury GTa few summers ago at a cruise night in Grimsby, Ontario.

RealRides of WNY - 1969 Chrysler 300

As you can see from the vanity plate, this is clearly a 1969 Chrysler 300, which was seen a few years ago in Wheatfield. It also would appear that it was purchased at Niagara Chrysler-Plymouth, which used to be located at Pine Avenue (now Niagara Falls Boulevard) at 66thStreet in Niagara Falls. This was the first year for Chrysler’s fuselage styling, an idea which featured a wide beltline, a
