RealRides of WNY #2413 ......................... 1979 Concord

The brochure called this 1979 AMC Concord DL“…elegant comfort and an excellent value.”Some might opine that the “…velveteen crushed fabric”seating surfaces reminded them of their grandmother’s living room sofa (hand raised!). Those who wanted an upgrade could move up to the DL Limited and get “genuine leather with corduroy accents.”The Concor

RealRides of WNY #2388 - 1980 Volaré

There are a few things I like about this 1980 Plymouth Volaréwagon: It has a factory-installed inline six with a floor-mounted three-speed manual transmission It’s showing only about 72,000 km on the odometer A rear window decal tells us that it “identifies as a Viper,”Lol Until seeing this one at this past summer’s Mopar Classic Car Showat Rose City Chrysler in We

RealRides of WNY #2380 - 1963 Ranchero

RealRidesreaders’ points to those of you who immediately recognized the wheel covers1on this 1963 Ford Falcon Rancherowhich we came across over the summer sporting a For Salesign in Westfield. Curiously, the Ranchero doesn’t wear a Falcon badge, even though Ford refers to it in the brochure as the Falcon Ranchero. The same brochure covers the Sedan Delivery, which doeswear a Falcon bad

RealRides of WNY #2293 - 1949 Dodge

Since we photographed this 1949 Dodge Coronet Club Coupein Clarenceback in June, we’ve learned that it’s been put upFor Sale, its owners having replaced it with another old classic car. The Coronet was Dodge’s top-of-the-line back in 1949, a notch above the Meadowbrook, and two above the Wayfarer lineup which consisted of a two-door sedan, a roadster, and a 3-passenger coupe &mda

RealRides of WNY #2275 - 1953 Chrysler

This 1953 Chrysler Windsor DeLuxeis notfrom the marque’s entry-level series. That would’ve been the plain ol' Windsor, which was available as Chrysler’s only two-door pillared car for 1953 (the Club Coupe), as well as — surprisingly (to me at least) Chrysler’s only 8-passenger sedan, along with the regular four-door sedan and Town & Country wagon. You can see the

RealRides of WNY #2267 - 1968 Mustang

If you’re looking for an unassuming pony car, we passed this 1968 Ford Mustangwhich was For Salea few weeks ago in Pendletonwhile on our way to the Field of Dreams Car Show in Lockport. Equipped with Ford’s 289cid V8, this Brittany Blue example has had an extensive amount of work done on it over the past few years. You might be surprised to learn that the hubcaps on today’s RealR

RealRides of WNY - 1955 Olds 88

This 1955 Oldsmobile 88sedan was seen on the side of the road on our way to Olcottone day early last fall. It was wearing a For Salesign in the windshield, as well as a pair of some of the strangest shaped factory fender skirts (IMO) to come out of Detroit… or in this case, Lansing, Michigan. I imagine Olds did it to mimic the shape of the front wheel opening but, why? The 88 models were re

RealRides of WNY - 1961 Comet

Rambler and Studebaker compacts had been around since the late 1950s, but for model year 1960 the Big Three entered the foray with the Chevy Corvair, Ford Falcon, and Chrysler Corporation’s Valiant. Ford’s Lincoln-Mercury Division might have arguably introduced what could be called the first senior compactpartway through the model year with the debut of the 1960 Comet(which wouldn&rsqu

RealRides of WNY - 1986 MR2

One magazine ad called the 1986 Toyota MR2“Too much fun for the timid,”while Car and Driveropined “Any car with a higher fun-per-dollar quotient would never be allowed by the IRS”— a fittingquote for today, April 15th, wouldn’t you say? We came across this nifty Toyota mid-engine two-seater last summer at a weekly cruise night at the Anchor Bar in Amherst. It wa

RealRides of WNY - 1956 Cadillac

When we came across this 1956 Cadillac Sixty-Twolast spring at a cruise night at the Charcoal Corral & Silver Lake Drive-In in Perry, the owner was offering it for sale. This one has the added bonus of factory air-conditioning, which you can see in the rear window. Cadillac said of its 1956 lineup, “…you will find them the most inspiring motor cars the world has ever seen!”
