RealRides of WNY - 1992 Custom Cruiser

You see plenty of Chevy and Buick versions of this gigantic station wagon from General Motors, but it’s not often you come across the third member of the bunch. A month or so ago we actually came across two1992 Oldsmobile Custom Cruiserwagons in the same parking lot, wearing (no less) consecutively numbered vanity plates. Is it just me, or do these things look even bigger without the fake wo

“Yo, VIP, let’s kick it!”I don’t imagine that Robert Van Winkle had this 1966 Plymouth VIPin mind when he recorded “Ice Ice Baby”back in 1990.

RealRides of WNY - 1977 Ford LTD

The For Sale sign on this 1977 Ford LTD, seen last week in Lewiston, seems to indicate it might be all original. This one was in the middle of Ford’s big-car lineup for 1977 — a lineup which was doing battle with Chevy’s new downsized cars. In the brochure they reminded us that “Ford hasn’t forgotten the big-car family,” and they hadn’t “…redu

RealRides of WNY - 1966 Plymouth Fury III

There was a time when many families in many neighborhoods had actual carsin their driveways; and many of them, depending of course on the neighborhood, were Chevys, Fords, or Plymouths. They all had lineups which matched each other model for model, and this 1966 Plymouth Fury IIIwent up against Chevy’s Impala and Ford’s Galaxie 500. These three were at the top of their pecking orders u
