RealRides of WNY - 1954 Packard

Kudos to the owner of this 1954 Packardfor presentlng his convertible with the top up at the 2014 Antique Automobile Club of America regional show at UB’s north campus in Amherst. Rare to see a Packard convertible anywherethese days (only 863 produced), especially from this, the pre-penultimate year for actual Packards before they morphed into badge-engineered Studebakers for MY 1957. It is

RealRides of WNY - 1948 Buick

From the School of Go-Big-Or-Stay-Home Design comes this 1948 Buick Super Estate Wagon. Buick told us it was “For white-tie occasions or country living, the car that changes from playboy to workhorse.”The Super was one of two Estate Wagons offered that year. Just 2,018 of them were produced, compared to only 350 of the even larger, more expensive Roadmaster model. Saw this one last sum

RealRides of WNY (on the road) - 1982 Zephyr

Not to sound judgy here, but this c1982 Mercury Zephyr GSseems like it’s parked in front of the appropriate yard in this otherly well-kept Seattle, Washingtonneighborhood. We came upon it back in the autumn of 2018 while on vacation (a two-door was also available — bottom illustration). Seeing that it’s wearing a Washington State Collectible Vehicletag, perhaps you’llcome a

RealRides of WNY - 1948 Buick Super

Day 1 of Wagon Week…This 1948 Buick Super Estate Wagonis from back in the day when New York State saw fit to register station wagons as Suburbans. In Buick-speak it was Model 59, and here’s how they described it in the brochure: “For white-tie occasions or country living, the car that changes quickly from playboy to workhorse. Beautifully finished in every detail.”It would

RealRides of WNY - 1982 Cadillac Seville

The 1982 Cadillac Sevilleis often referred to as a bustleback, due to its rear-quarter styling. Cadillac, in its promotional material, preferred the term “distinctive new profile.” At any rate, the second-gen Seville (1980-85) was a far cry from the original squared-off sedan, which debuted for 1976 derived from GM’s compact lineup of cars. It was hoped that this new, smaller Cad

RealRides of WNY - 1959 Buick Electra

Saw this 1959 Buick Electraa few years back at an Antique Automobile Club of America meet at the north campus of the University of New York at Buffalo (UB) in Amherst. The Electra was a new nameplate for Buick in 1959 — as were the Invicta and LeSabre. Buick ditched the Special, Super, Century, and Roadmaster models after the somewhat disastrous 1958 model year (in all fairness, it was an in

RealRides of WNY - 1986 Toyota

Nice to see this 1986 Toyota pickup holding up so well, at least on the outside. Hard to believe that this 31-year-old truck has been around long enough to qualify as an antique, according to both the Antique Automobile Club of America (25 years or older) and the New York State DMV (over 25 years old). I’ve always thought I might want a small pickup as they come in handy from time to time, a
