RealRides of WNY - 1947 Plymouth

If you were to look up the word “tank” in the dictionary, I wouldn’t be surprised to see a picture of a 1947 Plymouth Deluxelike this one next to the definition. Of course, back in the 1940s, mostcars were big hulks just like this one, but all of the Chrysler-built cars just seem to have that, you know — presence. Add to that the fact that they were a favorite of urban taxi

RealRides of WNY (on the road) - 1989 Skylark

Came upon this 1989 Buick Skylark Customearlier this pastweek while walking through Hell’s Kitchen in NYC. It looks like a real survivor car, wearing a dealer tag from Leader Buick, a now defunct dealership in Bayonne, New Jersey which went out of business in 1997. From the front the Skylark looks very Riviera-ish, but the back is more distinctive while hinting at the family tree it shares w

RealRides of WNY - 1950 Pontiac

Not sure if this 1950 Pontiacis an actualNiagara County Sheriff’s car or a replica of one. We saw it a couple of weeks ago parked in Youngstown. The markings certainly look authentic, but I have my doubts about the white bumpers… and it seems kind of “chromey” for a police car but, hey, you never know! Pontiac was still a few years away from putting a V8 under the hood &md

RealRides of WNY - 1969 Skylark

This 1969 Buick Skylark Custom, complete with what looks like a set of Olds Cutlass rims, is seen here at the start of the 2018 Hemmings Motor News Great Race, which ran from here in Buffaloto Halifax, Nova Scotia beginning late in June last year. In the front seat of the Team #123 car are driver Arnie Stephens and navigator Lynn Frederick, both from Canmore, Alberta. From the dealer plate still a

RealRides of WNY - 1987 Caprice

This 1987 Chevrolet Caprice Classic Broughamhas a name almost as long as its lineage. The full-sized ’87 Chevys were still using the same basic design that was introduced when the big cars were first downsized for MY 1977 — and they’d hang around until the new jelly bean-shaped 1991 models would bow. Chevy called this Caprice Classic Brougham “The ultimate Caprice. With all

RealRides of WNY - 1954 Belvedere

One car which really stood out at this year’s Olcott Beach Car Showin Olcottwas this 1954 Plymouth Belvedere, for at least a couple of reasons: the color combination was beautiful; and, just how often do you see a 1954 Plymouth these days! In their advertising, Plymouth described the car as “…the longer 1954 Plymouth.”But they don’t really mention just what it wastha

RealRides of WNY - 2014 R-R Ghost

The past three days have featured some rather rare RealRides, so we figured we’d go for four in a row with this 2014Rolls-Royce Ghost, photographed in Downtown Buffalofive years ago. New for model year 2010, the Ghost hearkened back to R-R’s Silver Ghost, the British manufacturer’s iconic car of the early twentieth century. Powered by a 6.6L V12 twin turbo engine, the Ghost moves

RealRides of WNY - 1988 Fleetwood Brougham

This 1988 Cadillac Fleetwood Broughamis just a powerwash away from regaining its former elegance. Or, as my grandfather would have succinctly put it, “It just needs a little elbow grease.” Cadillac sold over 53,000 of these big four-door, rear-wheel drive sedans (other than the stretch limos, the only RWD Caddy left in the catalog), equipped with a 5.0L 4-bbl V8 and (I’m sure a m

RealRides of WNY - 1978 LeBaron

You could say that this 1978 Chrysler LeBaron Medallionexisted mainly due to Detroit’s bad habit of making cars lower, longer, and wider for too many years. I guess they had to figure it would end someday, but I don’t imagine they ever figured it would take a gas crisis to force their hand. The LeBaron (well, this version, anyway) was introduced for MY 1977 in two- and four-door versio

RealRides of WNY - 1956 Ambassador

The brochure for this 1956 Nash Ambassador Superwas filled with superlatives: “…greatest shoulder room ever built into an automobile”, “the widest front seat, most leg room of any car”, and this rather wordy one — “…the most magnificent view a motorist can know—through the widest of all wrap-around windshields, the Scena-Ramic Windshield by N
