RealRides of WNY - 1966 Corona

When this 1966 Toyota Corona 1900hit the showrooms, it helpedscrawl the writing on the wall for the demise of Volkswagen’s beloved Beetle. Buyers wanting a smaller, inexpensive, reliable car would no longer have to cram their families into a 30-year-old design featuring hardly any trunk space, an inefficient heater/defroster system, and — let’s be honest — weird styling for

RealRides of WNY - 1938 Dodge

What’s the difference, you may ask, between this 1938 Dodge Touring Sedanand a regularfour-door sedan? This one has what Dodge called a built-in trunk, seen in the photo above as the bulge in the rear. Regular sedans’ rear ends went straight to the bumper from the rear window (see the 1937 at the bottom of page).Dodge employed many celebrities to tout their wares in the 1930s — i

RealRides of WNY - 1963 Lark

If you’ve ever wondered what a 1963 Studebaker Lark Regalwould look like without bumpers, you’ve come to the right place! Seen a couple of summers ago in Tonawanda, the Regal was just a notch above Studebaker’s entry level car, the Lark Standard (which was introduced halfway into the model year). The folks from South Bend told us that the Regal would “…unquestionably

RealRides of WNY - 1964 Impala

To the casual summer cruise night spectator, it would seem that Chevrolet made nothing but two-door hardtops and convertibles through much of the 1960s. But this 1964 Chevy Impalafour-door sedan, spotted a few years ago in Niagara Falls, is proof that the bow tie was indeed attached to the stray family car every now and then, Lol (millions of times!). The Dutch brochure talks about the ’64 I

RealRides of WNY (on the road) - Škoda Fabia, c2000

Okay, so a Škoda Fabia, c2000, isn’t your average everyday RealRide. It’s certainly not that old, but depending on which part of the world you call home, it’s not an everyday sighting. When I came across this one a few weeks ago in Somerset, Bermuda, the first thing that caught my eye was the color. The RealRidesphotography staff (me) was hoping to find a treasure-trove of

RealRides of WNY - 1965 Nova

Seems weird that this 1965 Chevrolet Chevy II Novawas seen a short while back in the same location as another ’65 Chevy II we featured here a week ago. This one though, is a little farther up the model lineup, which began at the bottom with the 100, then the Nova, with the Nova Super Sport at the top. The Chevy II is from an age whenits brochure mentioned as luxuriesmany of the things we all

RealRides of WNY - 1938 Cadillac

With 1,295 produced, at a starting MSRP of $1,730, this 1938 Cadillac Series 60four-door sedan was one of their best-selling models that year (the larger Series 60 Special topping the sales charts with 3,587 produced). With a wheelbase of 124 inches, it was Cadillac’s smallest car, but not their cheapest. That distinction went to the LaSalle lineup, which shared the Series 60 wheelbase, and

RealRides of WNY - 1957 Rambler

When this 1957 Rambler Customwas new, The Big Three (GM, Ford, and Chrysler) were still the big three in sales, but competition from other American makes was hanging in there. American Motors was making Ramblers like this one, along with the larger Nash Ambassador and the very similar Hudson Hornet (both of which which would be phased out for 1958), as well the imported Nash Metropolitan two-seate

RealRides of WNY - 1949 Cadillac

Period advertising told us this 1949 Cadillac Series Sixty-TwoTouring Sedan had “Superlative style in every line…”and that it was available in a full range of colors. This one, you’ve got to admit, has a color scheme seldom seen — especially these days. It was seen a few weeks back in Youngstwon, and appears to be Vista Gray Metallic over Madiera Maroon Metallic, esc

RealRides of WNY - 1940 Buick

If nothing else, this 1940 Buick Specialis a sure conversation starter. What, for instance, are those white lines which go half-way up each wheel well? Which, if any, country is that rather pre-EU European-looking license plate from? A very nautical-looking rope draping the bumper looks pretty heavy duty, but why is it there? The “WH” on the left front fender stands for… what ex
