RealRides of WNY #2297 - 1953 Chevy

This 1953 Chevrolet Two-Tenwas one of three four-doors offered in that year’s line-up, the other two being the base One-Fifty and the pricier (and fancier) Bel Air (see them all in the brochure illustration below). This was the first year that those three nameplates were used to depict Chevy’s different series. Previously, the Bel Air name was used exclusively to denote their pillarles

RealRides of WNY #2287 - 1966 Studebaker

For years we’ve been driving by a certain yard in the hamlet of Smith Millswhich always seemed to have an old Studebaker (is there any other kind?) parked up near the house way back off the road. A couple of weeks ago we went by again, and not only were there three mid-60s Studes right out front, but the owner, Howard Newberry, was just walking into his nearby shop/garage. So of course, we p

RealRides of WNY #2283 - 1941 Chevy

When we came across this 1941 Chevrolet Special DeLuxe Sport Sedana while back, the guy moving it around the North Tonawandaparking lot we saw them in told us that he’d just bought it. From any angle it looks remarkably good for an 81-year-old car. For the record, Chevy’s 1941 four-door sedans were Sport Sedans while the two-doors were Town Sedans. There were other body styles as well:

RealRides of WNY #2282 (on the road) - 1973 Matador

We finally “crossed over the bridge” a couple of weekends ago to attend the 26thAnnual Rambler-Rama, held this year in Port Perry, Ontario. Put on by the Northern Ramblers (AMC) Car Club of Canada, this year’s event featured almost 60 different AMC-related entries, including a bunch of AMXes, Americans, Marlins, and other assorted nameplates (including a few Hudsons) rarely seen

RealRides of WNY #2278 - 1956 Lincoln

In these past few years I’ve come to believe that you could buy a new 1956 Lincoln Capri(or the more upscale Premiere) in any color as long as it was black, or so it would seem from what I’ve been seeing around town now. I’m not sure where to find a breakdown of how many of each color were sold for MY 1956, but my sources tell me there were 19 different colors offered that year,

RealRides of WNY # 2277 - 1967 Fairlane

Notes on a recently seen 1967 Ford Fairlane 500: The mid-body side trim appears to be from a base model Fairlane, while the lower trim is Fairlane 500. If it is indeed a Fairlane 500, the trunk lid is missing the chrome piece which spans the space between the taillights. What looks like the 3M adhesive left over from the missing “Fairlane 500” badge on the trunk lid doesn’t seem

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 # 2274 - 1984 Dodge

I imagine a few of us out there are old enough to remember this New York State Police cruiser color scheme. Some of us go back even further to the black over white combo seen below in the 1972 Plymouth Fury I pinterest photo. Today’s RealRideis a bitnewer — a 1984 Dodge Diplomatseen in Wellsvillelast week in a gathering of spectators’ cars at the 2022 Hemmings Motor News Great Ra

RealRides of WNY #2271 - 1950 Plymouth

When I spotted this 1950 Plymouth Special DeLuxeat the recently held car & bike show put on by the Depew High School Academy of Finance in the Village of Depew, I made a bee-line over there to take these pictures before it got away. You just don’t see many Mopars from the early fifties these days. From here it looks like a factory two-tone paint job of Mexico Red over Peru Gray. Striking

RealRides of WNY #2266 - 1959 Lark

This 1959 Studebaker Lark VImade the drive from the Genesee County Village of Bergen to the Orphans Car Show in Orchard Parkearlier this month “…on the back roads” as the owners explained. A roughly one-and-a-quarter hour drive avoiding the Thruway is often the best way to go when driving a 63-year-old car, no matter how good its condition is — and this one’s in pret
