RealRides of WNY - 1961 Ford Falcon

Followed this 1961 Ford Falcon for a ways last Sunday until I finally had the opportunity to snap a picture as it turned off of Main Street in Clarence. Its wide whitewalls are close to (if not actually) period correct, but there’s no doubt about the license plate — a 1960-issue with the 1961 add-on corner tag. All 1961 Falcons were base models, to which different bits of chrome could

RealRides of WNY - 1956 Chevy Bel Air

This 1956 Chevy Bel Air, purchased last summer by RealRides reader Peter Pucak of Clarence, has only 56k on the odometer. It still has its original interior (including the carpets), and under the hood is Chevy’s Turbo-Fire V-8 — 265 cu. in. rated at 170 hp.

RealRides of WNY - 1962 Ford Thunderbird

Seeing a 1962 Ford Thunderbird convertible always reminds me of the old television series 77 Sunset Strip. Seems like back in the early 1960s, all detectives drove cool cars.

It’s not often I get the chance to follow a RealRide down the road for a picture, but last summer on my way to the WNY Thunderbird Show in Clarence I spotted this 1973 AMC Javelin going the other way in traffic. By the time I’d turned around in a nearby plaza I lost the Javelin, but as I was about to exit the parking lot, there it was, parked off to the right. Very distinctive-looking

RealRides of WNY - 1980 Chevrolet El Camino

Looking for a car? Or maybe a truck? How about a car/truck? That’s just what this 1980 Chevrolet El Camino is — a light-duty pickup based on the Malibu passenger car body. Nice to see one still looking to be in pretty much stock condition; even nicer (and probably pretty rare) is finding one with a three-speed, floor-mounted manual transmission and a 3.8L V6 (produced in GM’s Ton
