RealRides of WNY (on the road) - 1982 Zephyr

Not to sound judgy here, but this c1982 Mercury Zephyr GSseems like it’s parked in front of the appropriate yard in this otherly well-kept Seattle, Washingtonneighborhood. We came upon it back in the autumn of 2018 while on vacation (a two-door was also available — bottom illustration). Seeing that it’s wearing a Washington State Collectible Vehicletag, perhaps you’llcome a

RealRides of WNY - Post-War Dodge

While trying to determine the model year of this Post-War Dodge, I turned to my trusty desk-mate — the Encyclopedia of American Cars [1930 to Today]which was published in 2006, so that “today”part is a little dated. Anyway, to me the 1946 through the first series '49cars all look alike — and darned if the book doesn’t tell me they were, except for serial numbers. Dodg

RealRides of WNY - 1952 Chevrolet

This 1952 Chevrolet Styline De Luxeis just one more reminder of how colorful cars could be if the manufacturers would lose the black/white/gray palette they seem so enamored with these days. Today’s RealRide is decked-out in what looks like Spring Green over Emerald Green. And you can’t tell from here, but in 1952 if your Chevy was green on the outside, the interior likely matched. See

RealRides of WNY - 1947 Chrysler

The Hemmings Motor News Great Race of 2012made a stop in Buffalo.Entrants drove from astarting point in Traverse City, Michigan and headed north into Canada. They passed each of the Great Lakes on their way to Dearborn, Michigan after re-entering the U.S. in Kingston, New York. Today’s RealRideis one of two 1947 Chrysler Town & Country4-door sedans to take part. This one was piloted by T

RealRides of WNY (on the road) - 1947 Plymouth

We came across this 1947 Plymouthback in 1975 at a car show on the San Diego Fairgrounds in Del Mar, California. (How we ended up there that day in April almost 45 years ago is a long story for another time.) Note the mural on the trunklid which features this very car, giving you a front and rear view all in one shot! Plymouth thought their front end was much more gracefulthan its Ford and Chevy r

RealRides of WNY - 1967 Electra 225

This 1967 Buick Electra 225 Limitedpillared sedan came all the way from Massachusetts for the 2017 All Buick Showin Cheektowaga. Interesting how some manufacturers decide to describe their cars’ virtues. The Electra was equipped with “Easy Power Steering standard.”We also learn from that year’s catalog that the “Drive shaft is slightly angled to reduce tunnel height i

RealRides of WNY - 1963 LeSabre

According to the trunk badge on this 1963 Buick LeSabre, it was bought at Dreis Bros. Beacon Motors Ltd., in Weyburn, Saskatchewan. Your geography lesson for the day: Weyburn is the tenth-largest city in Saskatchewan (the only Canadian province without a natural border), whose capital is Regina, and whose largest city is Saskatoon. Weyburn is 70 km north of the US border with North Dakota. The bui

RealRides of WNY - 1995 Fleetwood

Perhaps this 1995 Cadillac Fleetwood Brougham, seen last summer in Lewiston’s Academy Park at a weekly Friday cruise night, didn’t have the commanding footprint of the pre-downsizing 1976 model. (With an overall length of 233.7 inches, and weighing 5,357 pounds, that older Gerald Ford-era barge was — well, a barge.) The 1995 model was still the V8-packing, rear-drive luxury sedan

RealRides of WNY - 1974 Torino

It’s not always easy to remember some 46 years later, but the auto industry did actually make everyday ordinary family cars back in the day (although they weren’tputting mag wheels and oversize tires on them, Lol). This base model 1974 Ford Torino4-door pillared hardtop (kind of a contradiction in terms) is an example. Although you don’t see a lot of Torinos periodfrom this era,

RealRides of WNY - 1970 Gloria

Talk about a seldom-seen car here in WNY — this 1970 Prince Gloriawas one of the entrants in 2018 Hemmings Motor News Great Race, which started right here in Buffaloand finished 10 days later in Halifax, Nova Scotia. The Team 69 car’s members (Team Japan 2) were driver Hiroshi Izawa, and the navigation team of Nobu Nakamura, Akiko Izawa, and Tatsu Izawa — all of whom hail from To
