RealRides of WNY - 1978 Lincoln

When we stopped by to photograph this 1978 Lincoln Continental Town Caroutside a local garage, we joked with the proprietor how we almost had to stand across the street to get the entire car in the shot. Ford was still a few years behind General Motors in the downsizing of its b-i-g cars, and this Town Car was their b-i-g-g-e-s-t. The living room-like size of the big Lincolns translated to luxurio

RealRides of WNY - 1929 Ford

This 1929 Ford Fordor Two Windowsedan is another in my series of “Cars Even Older Than I Am.”Seen back in 2015 at the annual car show on the grounds of the Buffalo History Museum, it should give you an idea of where the term “trunk” came from when referring to the storage area located at the rear of many cars. Lol… A big deal back in 1929 was the fact that “Spr

RealRides of WNY - 1988 Alfa Romeo

First off, no, that’s nota shamrock on the trunk lid of this 1988 Alfa Romeo Milano— it’s a four-leaf clover (shamrocks have only three leaves). It’s been featured on many of the Italian manufacturer’s cars for almost 100 years. Back in 1923, Team Alfa race driver Ugo Sivocci affixed thefirst four-leaf clover onto his entry for good luck in the 1923 Targa Florio, an o

RealRides of WNY - 1996 Olds

This 1996 Oldsmobile Ciera SLwas sported with a for salesign in the window five winters ago in Wheatfield. Not sure if the seller thought it would be a good winter driver, or if the seasonal offering was just a coincidence. Olds’ mid-sized front-driver was introduced for MY 1982 in station wagon (below) and two- and four-door sedan versions as the Cutlass Ciera. For 1996, the Cutlass moniker

RealRides of WNY - 1956 Chevy

We spent the better part of an evening last summer parked next to this 1956 Chevy Two-Tenat a cruise night in the parking lot of the Elderwood Assisted Living facility in Tonawanda. Seeing that they'rethe middle child of the Tri-Fives, I’ve always been drawn to the ’56 models (I feel their pain!). IMO it’s a bit more refined than the ’55 while not as garish as the ’57

RealRides of WNY - 1956 Packard

This 1956 Packard Patricianfinally brought the Detroit automaker into line with the rest of the mid-fifties cars gracing America’s showrooms. The “many-faceted grillwork… flow of its broad Caribbean-inspired side molding…deep-breathing V-8 engine”should have all contributed to a successful sales year. Unfortunately, it didn’t happen that way. By the time these

RealRides of WNY - 1987 5th Avenue

I’m going to ask you all to lean in close and listen carefully as I have to whisper: To paraphrase a famous former American politician, “We can see this 1987 Chrysler New Yorker Fifth Avenuefrom our front porch.” Why whisper that? It’s for sale. And I’d love to see it in my driveway. Nobody here at theRealRideshead office knows that but me. But, the RealRidesgarage al

RealRides of WNY - 1983 Park Ave

You don’t see many GM cars from this era looking as good as this 1983 Buick Electra Park Avenue. This was the big Buick’s top-of-the-line (there were also Electra Limited & Estate versions), and it included such nicities as: 50/50 divided front seats (compared to the mere 55/45 seats of the Limited!), cruise control, tilt wheel, 6-way power seats, power door locks & deck releas

RealRides of WNY - 1967 Chrysler

We’re guessing this 1967 Chrysler Newport Customshed its fender skirts for the installation of a new set of tires, judging from the blue goowhich still coats the white stripes. Back in the day, Chrysler was still in the habit of giving each series distinctive grilles and taillights, a feature which would continue into MY 1968, with the 300 in addition getting hidden headlights. The Newport C

RealRides of WNY - 1950 Ford

What’s not to like about this 1950 Ford Custom Deluxe? There’s something here for everybody: it’s still pretty much intact, so the purists could easily restore it back to stock condition; those who like their shoeboxes modified can rejoice in the paint job as well as the wheel/tire upgrade & the Blue Dot taillight lenses; and everyone can certainly enjoy the raccoon tail on t
