RealRides of WNY #2592 ......................... 1953 Buick Roadmaster

SANBORN, N.Y.– Although this 1953 Buick Roadmasterwas the Flint manufacturer’s top of the line car, unlike with later series beginning in the mid-1960s there wasn’t a whole lot going on on the outside to differentiate it from the base model Special. Yes, there was a bit more chrome trim, a fourth porthole on the front fender, and another four inches of wheelbase, but from a block

RealRides of WNY #2428 ......................... 1973 Buick LeSabre

In the literature, the 1973 Buick LeSabrewas called “the standard big Buick.”Some of us would call it the base, or entry-level model. Today’s RealRideis just a notch up from there, being a LeSabre Custom, which added a bit nicer interior and a bunch of exterior brightwork.

(Just last year there was a 1915 Ford.) The 1916 brochure told us that this was the third year of the Touring Car — which they told us “…combined all the essentials for perfect motoring plea

RealRides of WNY - 1967 VW

Volkswagen used to pride itself on the fact that from year-to-year their cars looked pretty much the same, even though they were being constantly improved upon. When this 1967 VW 1500hit the market, some of the changes were more apparent. A bigger engine, redesigned headlamps & taillights, up-and-down door-locking buttons, recessed inside door handles, a driver’s door arm rest was added,

RealRides of WNY - 1965 Ford

This 1965 Ford Galaxie 500looks like it drove right out of the brochure onto the grounds of last Sunday’s weekly cruise night at Hoover’s Restaurantin Sanborn. Perhaps Ford’s copywriters weren’t quite schooled in political correctness when they penned this description of one of the features of its retractable roof: “Side-mounted top latches, easy enough for the most p
