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- 1967 F-85

You might not think soto look at this 1967 Oldsmobile F-85 Club Coupe, but it was the Lansing Division’s least-expensive offering that year, with a starting MSRP of just $2,410 with the 155-hp Action-Line 6(only 5,349 produced) or $2,480 with the 250-hp Jetfire Rocket V-8(6,700 produced). Olds told us in the brochure that the F-85 line was “…priced to make going Olds almost as e

RealRides of WNY - 1975 Omega

The 1975 Oldsmobile Omegawas “A lot of little Olds”as the folks from Lansing told us in their advertising. Although it was only a very thinlydisguised Chevy Nova, it didhave some distinctive Olds touches: its front end looked a lot like the supremely popular Cutlass (see what we did there?), right down to the swingaway grille (below), which moved back on minor impacts. The rear treatme

RealRides of WNY - 1973 AMC Gremlin X

This 1973 AMC Gremlin Xis owned by Orchard Park’s Connor Kolband his uncle, Dave Hulin. You may have seen it recently gracing the top of the “AMC Hornet, Gremlin, Concord, Eagle, and Spirit”Facebook page (bottom photo).

RealRides of WNY - 1965 Plymouth Barracuda

Day 5 of Discontinued Marques Week…When this 1965 Plymouth Barracuda was new, who’d-a thought that 37 years later the Plymouth name would drive off into the horizon (pun intended). The Barracuda, as you might remember, preceded the Ford Mustang into what was still the unnamed genre of automobile which would evolve into the pony car. It was heavily based on Plymouth’s compact Val

RealRides of WNY - 1949 Chevrolet

This 1949 Chevrolet DeLuxeis from the stable of WNY’s Joseph Galvin, whose dozen or so cars are all registered and insured so as to see regular street duty during our more agreeable weather months. This one looks like someone had a good time thumbing through (and making notations in) the Genuine Chevrolet Accessoriescatalog. From here we can see: chrome-plated trunk guard (which rises from t

RealRides of WNY - 1972 Dodge Polara

Ran into this 1972 Dodge Polaraa couple of summers ago at the owner’s home in South Wales. Discovered the next day that the photos didn’t turn out all that well; but luckily we crossed paths again this past summer at the Quaker Dayscar show in Orchard Park, where Pete Mistrettaand his California Highway Patrol car were part of the opening ceremony’s parade of cars. Keen observers
