RealRides of WNY (on the road) - 1959 Buick

The brochure writers told us that “All eyes turn when the low-slung 1959 Buick Electra 225convertible sweeps by.”And I’m sure this is just what happened when RealRidespal Rick Lapp’s neighbor Bobby stopped by his Muncy, Pennsylvaniayard with this unrestored beauty.

RealRides of WNY - 1962 Corvair

This 1962 Chevrolet Corvair Monzafour-door flattop is my favorite body style of the first-generation of Chevy’s rear-engine import fighter.

RealRides of WNY - 1960 Cadillac

Came across a seldom-seen 1960 Cadillac Sixty-Twosix-window sedan a couple of summers ago inKenmore. I say seldom-seenreferring only to myself, as it seems that most Caddys I come across from this era are 1959 models. The Sixty-Two four-door hardtop was available in two variations: this six-window version, and the flat-top four-window. The flat-top body style was available in all five of General M
