RealRides of WNY #2337 - 1976 Stepside

One sure way to make sure you can always find your 1976 Chevy C10 Scottsdale Stepside in a crowded parking lotis to order it with a bright orange paint job. Today’s RealRide, seen earlier this year inFranklinville, looks just like the one in the brochure (except for its knobby tires) touting a new (unnamed) trim package available for the C10 Stepside which could be hadin blue, orange, red, o

RealRides of WNY #2334 - 1966 Ranchero

This 1966 Ford Rancherowas brought to this year’s Festival at the Beach car show by Hamburg’s Tony Zanelotti. (The Pacer parked next to it was driven by his wife Carol.) This would be the seventh and final year that the Ranchero would be part of the Falcon lineup, with the ’67 models wearing the front clip of the midsize Fairlane series. Strangely, to me anyway, are the ’66

RealRides of WNY - 1959 El Camino

Another day, another pickup. Although, this one’s much more car-like than yesterday’s RealRide. That’s because this 1959 Chevrolet El Caminois basically a heavily modified Chevy station wagon. The brochure called it “…an ideal blend of passenger car glamour and truck utility that will add enjoyment to your tasks and status to your business!”Would Chevy had even

RealRides of WNY - 1973 El Camino

Sometimes in the middle of summer we need a reminder that it’s not always so hot around here. A few winters ago we came across this 1973 Chevy El Camino in hibernation in a Niagara Fallslot. This was the first year for GM’s colonnade styling, and IMO it translated pretty well to the Chevy (and GMC) car/truck. All ’73 El Camino models came with V8 power: a 307 was standard, and tw

RealRides of WNY - 1961 Mercury Econoline

Last week we featured an early Dodge van, and yesterday in this space was a Corvair Greenbrier from 1962. So it seems only fitting to follow up with one of these old compact trucks from the other member of The Big Three. But this one’s probably the rarest of them all — a 1961 Mercury Econolinepickup. That’s right — Mercury. Why, you may ask, was there such a thing? Well, it

RealRides of WNY - International L-Series, c1952

Not every pickup truck from the early 1950s was a Ford or Chevy, it only seemsthat way. This International L-Series truck (c1952),seen last summer in Clarence, is just one example of the alternatives offered back in the day. The L-Series trucks were built from 1949-52, and, as with the competition, they were available in a variety of configurations to accommodate different carrying capacities in t
