RealRides of WNY - 1968 Dodge Monaco

Nothing quite says full-sized sedan better than a big Mopar from the mid-1960s. This 1968 Dodge Monaco is a prime example of the Chrysler Corporation’s sharp-edged styling of the era. Squared-off roofs and angled front and rear ends were prominent on all big Plymouths, Dodges, and Chryslers in 1967-68, but this would all go by the wayside the following year with the introduction of Mopar&rsq

RealRides of WNY - 1957 Chevy Two-Ten

But here it is, seen a couple of weeks ago in Albion. The GTA was a one-year-only model, which came about with the hope of elevating the American Motors compact to new performance heights. Some wag on Wikipedia opined that

RealRides of WNY - 1955 Ford Ranch Wagon

(Day 5 of WagonWeek)It’s not often anymore that you see a full-sized two-door station wagon, but back in the day most manufacturers offered at least one. Like this 1955 Ford Ranch Wagon, which was at the bottom of Ford’s popular station wagon series. Also available were a Custom Ranch Wagon, and four-door wagons in the Country Sedan and Country Squire lines — the latter two in si
