RealRides of WNY - 1965 Chevelle

Either this 1965 Chevy Chevelle Malibuis a work in progress, or someone’s made off with all of its chrome trim. It can still be identified as a Malibu by the placement of holes for the clips of the missing trim pieces — oh, and the ghost of a Malibu nameplate on the rear fender (bottom photo).The Malibu was still the Chevelle’s top trim line for MY 1965, with the Malibu Super Spo

RealRides of WNY - 1976 Town Car

Came across this 1976 Lincoln Continental Town Carone day last month outside of the DMV in Downtown Buffalo. The owner was lucky enough to find a parking spot right at the corner of Delaware and Church which he didn’t have to parallel park himself into. Not that it’s impossible to do, but with an overall length of 232.9 inches you'd need to find a pretty big hole! The Town Car was the

RealRides of WNY - 1939 Dodge

“Imagine enjoying a radio in your car that equals that afforded by modern home radios!”Thus begins the brochure’s spiel for the Dodge-Philco radio which was available at extra cost in this 1939 Dodge Luxury Liner Deluxe. Six pre-set stations available via pushbuttons meant you could “…tune in your favorite station without taking your eyes off the road — an adde

RealRides of WNY - 1959 Catalina

Take a close look at the vent window on this 1959 Pontiac Catalinaand you’ll see what we did back in the old days when hardly anybody had a car with a/c. The ’59s were the first Pontiacs to be designed under the tutelage of Semon E. “Bunky” Knudsen, who was appointed General Manager of GM’s Pontiac Division in 1956. At the timehe was the youngest general manager in Ge

RealRides of WNY - 1953 Chrysler

Driving through Elmaone rainy afternoon earlier this summer I came across this 1953 Chrysler Windsorby the side of the road wearing a For Salesign. When this car left the factory, it most likely had Chrysler’s Spitfire engine under the hood, an inline six which delivered 119 horsepower. Pricier New Yorkers (and the Imperial) came with the FirePower engine, a 180-hp V8 with a Hemispherical Co

RealRides of WNY - 1960 Olds

The brochure described the 1960 Oldsmobile Dynamic 88sedans as “..the lowest priced Rocket Engine Oldsmobiles [with which you could] satisfy your sense of thrift with the savings of regular fuel — save about a dollar a fill!”Which back then would probably have paid for your weekly ration of Starbucks (if they had been around in 1960). Anyway, this off-white four-door, seen earlie

RealRides of WNY - 1953 Packard

One thing about riding a bicycle — you often find yourself on streets you’d probably never go down in a car. So it was a few weeks ago when I trekked up to Lockport, turned down one of those side streets, and, voila — a 1953 Packard Patrician. The ’53 models were the first under new Packard head James Nance, who was not enthralled with Packardhaving wadedinto the medium-pri

RealRides of WNY (on the road) - 1984 300 SD

This 1984 Mercedes-Benz 300 SDwas spotted in one of the most unlikely places (for us, at least) — Red Hook, Brooklyn. We found ourselves there back in September 2016, helping a friend while manning one of the portable video screens at the start of the 15thAnnual Stephen Siller Tunnel to Towers 5K Run & Walk, which followed the footsteps of the late New York firefighter’s September

RealRides of WNY - 1930 Model A

By the time this 1930 Ford Model A Town Sedanwent on sale, the Dearborn manufacturer was no longer selling cars only “in any color as long as it’s black.” One internet source shows a veritable rainbow of colors for the Model A — and after viewing a rather poorly reproduced color chart, I’m taking a stab that this one is Cordoba Tan. I’m also only guessing that i

RealRides of WNY - 1930 Chevy

Seeing the Texas license plate on this 1930 Chevroletmade we wonder if the owner drove it up here just for the occasion of the 2014 Buffalo History Museumcar show. I’ll bet there’d be some stories there if it were true. Chevy, in it’s literature for 1930, called this particular model The Sedan ($675 f.o.b. Flint, Michigan). There was another four-door called The Club Sedan which,
