RealRides of WNY - 1955 Oldsmobile 88

Saw this 1955 Oldmobile 88 Holiday coupe last summer in Newfane on my way to the Olcott Beach Car Show. Hard to tell from this example, but in 1955 the 88 was at the bottom of the Olds lineup. Holiday was Olds-speak for their pillarless models. And here’s a bit of Olds trivia for you: after the 1950 models, Oldsmobile didn’t offer a station wagon again until the 1957s came out. Not sur

RealRides of WNY - 1956 Chevy El Camino

Now here’s something you don’t see everyday… or any day, for that matter — a 1956 Chevrolet El Camino. That’s probably because Chevy didn’t start making them until the 1959 model year, in response to Ford’s new-for-1957 Ranchero. This ’56, seen at this summer’s car show at Olcott Beach, could probably pass for a factory-made Elky, it’s t

RealRides of WNY - 1968 Dodge Monaco 500

RealRides of WNY - 1958 Buick Limited

But other exclusive fashion notes are readily seen here, too—the distinctive bank of louvers on its rear fenders, the jewel-

RealRides of WNY - 1965 Olds 4-4-2

Walked by just in time to catch the owner of this beautiful 1965 Oldsmobile 4-4-2 club coupe getting ready to leave the recent huge car show at Olcott Beach. I found the Mohave Mist/Forest Mist two-tone paint scheme striking, and the owner told me it’s an original survivor car! So many of these have been tarted-up with huge tires/rims, gawd-awful paint jobs, and annoyingly-loud exhausts that
