RealRides of WNY - 1980 El Camino

You can search the brochure for this 1980 Chevrolet El Camino, but I don’t think you’ll find that thehood scoop seen on this one was ever offered from the factory on that year’s car/truck mashup. And before you ask, no, it wasn’t shown in the Malibu catalogs either. But the Elky couldbe had with a bevy of other extra-cost add-ons like the ones shown in the illustration belo

RealRides of WNY - 1966 C10

Yes, it was an All-Ford show in Hamburgsponsored by the Western New York Shelby and Mustang Club, the Mustang Club of America, and West-Herr Ford, but that didn’t mean the owner of this 1966 Chevrolet C10 Fleetsidecouldn’t show up (and park across the street of course, Lol) to check out the competition. This was the final year for this body style, which was introduced for model year 19

RealRides of WNY - 1969 A100

The age of this 1969 Doge A100pickup was at first a bit confusing when we came across it a few weeks ago at the Toy Town Car Show in East Aurora. An info sheet in the front window told us it was a 1969 (it also said it has vintage Cragar SS mags), but the car show placard said 197?. Well, the majority rules here, as the NYS registration sticker said 1969 Dodge Pick, so that’s what we’r

RealRides of WNY - 1951 Ford F-1

Spotted this 1951 Ford F-1back in May while bicycling through Kenmore. That big white pickup pulled up and parked right next to it as I was getting ready to get a shot from the driver’s side. Ugh. Back in ’51, the cab design of the F-1 was shared pretty much throughout most of the Ford truck lineup, with some modifications for size, of course, as you can see below with the F-6 medium-d

RealRides of WNY - 1991 Fleetside

As if this 1991 Chevrolet Crew Cab Fleetsidewasn’t already long enough, this one’s been dropped pretty close to the ground, giving it the illusion of even morelength. Owned by Ashley Hanes of Cheektowaga, the ’91 Crew Cab has a wheelbase of 164.5 inches with an eight-foot cargo bed — the brochure that I found doesn’t list its overall length. I guess the answer would h

RealRides of WNY - 1951 Packard

Always on the lookout for the automotive oddity, I was immediately drawn to this 1951 Packard Partician 400pickup a couple of nights agoat a cruise night in Perryat the Charcoal Corral/Silver Lake Twin Drive-In. Of course, Packard didn’t offer a pickup in their 1951 catalog (a few might have been custom-built as funeral flower cars), and this one started out life as a four-door sedan, pictur

RealRides of WNY - 1952 Crosley

Even with the vast resourses of the internet at my fingertips, it’s difficult to get a bead on this particular1952 Crosleypickup (MSRP $925!). Spotted a couple of summers ago at the annual Kiwanis car show in Pembroke, this one even has a matching trailer. The decal on the tailgate identifies the truck as a Crosley Short Sport— of which the internet has never heard. The trailer’s

RealRides of WNY - 1940 GMC

This 1940 GMCpickup shows one of two different front ends offered that year (the other one is at the bottom of the page). Both of course, were shared with the very similar Chevy pickups of the day. I’m scratching my head as to why General Motors still offers the two brands. If they were to drop one or the other, it’s doubtful in my mind that potential buyers would switch over to a Ford

RealRides of WNY (on the road) - 1954 Chevy

If you’re on this page, you probably already know that the first modern-day car/pickup from Chevrolet didn’t arrive until MY 1959. But back in 2016, on my way to New York City on Rte. 17 I was passing through the town of Apalachinand exited for a pit stop. Driving down one of the town roads I spotted (I think) a 1954 Chevytrying to morph into a pre-El Camino. From the looks of it, it&r

RealRides of WNY - 1970 Sweptline

I’ve always said that if I were ever in the market for a classic pickup, I’d want something a bit out of the ordinary. This 1970 Dodge D100 Sweptlinewould fill the bill nicely; not that there’s anything uncommonly weird about it, but most pickups you see from this era seem to be Fords or Chevys. And we like to be different. This one was actually for salewhen we came across it bac
