RealRides of WNY - 1998 Achieva

This 1998 Oldsmobile Achieva SLrepresents the model’s final hurrah, as in 1999 Olds’ smallest car would be the new Alero. The two-door coupe was dropped for MY 1998, leaving this four-door sedan as the Achieva’s lone offering. And although IMO it seems like every ’98 Achieva was produced in the Medium Green Metallicof today’s RealRide(okay, maybe I’ve also notic

RealRides of WNY (on the road) - Dyane 6

You’re probably all familiar with the brand, perhaps for no other reason than seeing 1950s DS sedans in old French movies. But how many of you have actually seen a Citroën Dyane 6in person? Or even knew that such a thing existed? Built from 1967 to 1983, the Dyane was based on another quirky, iconic Citroën, the 2CV. The “6” in the name of today’s RealRiderefers t

RealRides of WNY - 1986 Gran Fury

From the Straightedge School of Automotive Designcomes this 1986 Plymouth Gran Fury. The nearly identical 1985 model’s brochure called it “…a lot of car for the money.”Meanwhile, Dodge was telling us that their slightly more upscale version of the car, the Diplomat, “…offers all the traditional comforts and luxuries that make full-sized cars so appealing.&rdqu

RealRides of WNY - 1958 Chevy

We spotted this 1958 Chevrolet Delraya few weeks ago in a Tonawandaparking lot. You can tell it’s a six-cylinder model by the lack of “vee” emblems on the trunk and hood(see photo at bottom of page). We were quite surprised when we saw this car because: a) you don’t see many 60-year-old classic cars out on the streets of WNY in December; b) although I’m sure the major

RealRides of WNY - 1978 LeBaron

We last saw this 1978 Chrysler LeBaron Medalliona year ago at Olcott Beach (below), where it was parked in the street during the 2019 Olcott Beach Car Show. We saw it again last month, now updated with a set of new rims. The brochure described them as “Brightly finished, sporty-looking 15” forged aluminum road wheels [which] are 10% lighter than comparable steel wheels.”In case y

RealRides of WNY - 1991 Park Avenue

The big American luxury sedan wasn’t dead yet when this 1991 Buick Park Avenuewas new. Plush as it was, it still wasn’t the swankiest Park available. That honor fell to the Park Avenue Ultra, which at the time Buick called “The most refined 6-passenger sedans Buick has ever offered.”All Park Aves came with (among other niceties) Buick’s renowned 3.8L V6; 15-inch alumi

RealRides of WNY - 1964 Valiant

We came across this 1964 Plymouth Valiant V-200seven years ago at a car show at the NACC (Niagara Arts & Cultural Center) in Niagara Falls. It would appear to be missing a bit of trim under the trunk lid out back (see the convertible photo),which makes it look like the base model V-100. But to make up for it, it also appears to be wearing a set of “magnesium-type sport wheel covers with

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. It was the only one of GM’s compacts to feature this roof style which was widely used on the full-sized cars in all of GM’s brands for 1959-60. The Monza was the top-of-the-line for the ’62 Corvair, available in two- and four-door sedan

RealRides of WNY - 1967 Lincoln

We found this 1967 Lincoln Continentala few weeks ago, appropriately, in a parking lot adjacent to the building which houses one of Buffalo’s oldies radio stations inCheektowaga. The Continental was all-new for 1966, so the ’67 models had minimal changes — one of them being “…the Continental emblem has been embroidered into a new knit broadcloth Chalfonte fabric.&rdq

RealRides of WNY - 1960 Impala

This 1960 Chevrolet Impalais a bit of a departure from what you usually see at a car show/cruise night in that it’s a four-door sedan. I don’t think it’s my imagination that most ’60 Chevys you see these days are hardtops, convertibles, or the super-cheap Biscayne or Bel Air two-door sedans. The 1960 models were a bit of a restyle from the radical 1959 cars, and they marked
