RealRides of WNY - 1970 Delta 88

This 1970 Oldsmobile Delta 88is one of only 3,095 produced, and it had a starting MSRP of $3,903. The Delta 88 was Olds’ lowest-priced full-sized nameplate, and it also consisted of two- and four-door hardtops (a pillarless hardtop was a “Holiday” in Olds-speak) as well as a pillared four-door Town Sedan; the Delta 88 Custom mirrored that lineup, less the convertible, while the t

RealRides of WNY - Mustang II

Trying to figure out the year of this Mustang II Mach 1isn’t easy. The fender badge says V8, which narrows it down to a 1975-1978. Although, none of the official Mach 1 illustrations I saw included the rear spoiler seen on this car (which looks more Cobra II-like); the hood scoop, of course, is a definite after-market add-on. Ford sold a butt-load of Mustang IIs from ’74-’78, but

RealRides of WNY - 1956 Fairlane

This 1956 Ford Fairlane ForDor Victoriawas spotted by RealRidesreader Howard Goldman in Buffalo, where Black Rock meets Riverside.

The Ford brochure told us it had “All the open-smartness of the famous Victoria, plus the added convenience of

RealRides of WNY - c1967 Mercedes-Benz

Day 5 of Project Car Week… This Mercedes-Benz 250 S was seen a while ago in Buffalo’s Riverside neighborhood. Looks like a few parts have been removed — maybe for another project? — but overall this German luxury sedan looks very restorable (from the outside). The 250 S was built from 1965-72 and was an offshoot of the larger 300 series. Still, one of the most handsome sed

RealRides of WNY - Jaguar XJ12L, c1974

(Day 5 of ImportWeek)If you wanted to arrive in style, and probably not see another car just like yours in the parking lot, one sure way to go was in this Jaguar XJ12L, c1974. The “12” in the big Jag saloon’s name came from the SOHC 5.3L V12 under its long bonnet, while the “L” indicated the longer (by four inches) wheelbase version — which by this time was the

RealRides of WNY - 1957 Dodge Custom Royal

Hey look, it’s another bicycling-around-town RealRide discovery — a 1957 Dodge Custom Royal found just outside of Riverside in Buffalo. Back in the day, early spy photos of Chrysler’s 1957 line-up — all with graceful tailfins — put General Motors in panic mode. They scrapped their 1959 designs, which were just about set in stone, and came up with their own finned-and-
