RealRides of WNY - 1978 Regal

The fender badge on this 1978 Buick Regal Limitedindicates that it’s equipped with a 5.0L V8 — the standard powerplant would have been a 3.2L V6 (except in California and designated high-altitude areas, which got a 3.8L V6). If this had been a Regal Sport Coupe its standard equipment 3.8L engine would have been turbocharged, but again things were more complicated in the above-mentioned

RealRides of WNY - 1988 Mustang

Buyers of the 1988 Ford Mustang LXconvertible were treated to something not available on the hardtop or the fastback models — roll-down rear quarter windows! Cars like this one, with the optional 5.0L V8, also came with the cast aluminum wheels seen on today’s RealRide, as well as a “decklid luggage rack with integrated high-mount stop lamp.”That center brake lamp was still

RealRides of WNY - 1988 Fleetwood Brougham

This 1988 Cadillac Fleetwood Broughamis just a powerwash away from regaining its former elegance.

RealRides of WNY - 1984 Oldsmobile Toronado Brougham

RealRides of WNY - Porsche 928S 4

Scratching my head as I came upon this Porsche 928S 4, I kept wondering what the 4stood for? I was pretty sure it wasn’t four-wheel-drive, and I’d have bet the house that it didn’t have a four-banger under that long hood. Thanks to a Googlesearch, I came across a road test which was published in the January 1987 issue of Automobilemagazine, in which Georg Kacher told us it signif

RealRides of WNY - 1987 Continental Mark VII

Some cars just look best in black. Like this 1987 Lincoln Continental Mark VII, seen last summer in Kenmore. This one has a padded top, as well as the wire spoke aluminum wheels which were standard on the Bill Blass Mark VII and optional on the base model. The sportier Mark VII LSC wore what Lincoln called Handling Cast Aluminum wheels, and had a high-performance version of the 5.0L V-8 which put
