RealRides of WNY- 1955 Nomad

It’s not often that you come across a 1955 Chevy Bel Air Nomadat a church parking lot cruise night. Seems like most of them are at bigger car shows, where trophies are handed out and car owners spend muchof their time polishing the chrome. So it was interesting to come across today’s RealRideat acruise night at St. John the Baptist Church in Alden. This is one Nomad which looks like it

RealRides of WNY - 1959 Chevy

If you’re gonna get a photo of the back end of a 1959 Chevy Parkwood, I guess you’d call this the money shot. It was all about the fins back in the late 1950s, and the ’59 Chevy and ’59 Cadillac were just about as finny as they came. The Parkwood was one of four Chevy wagon nameplates for 1959. In ascending order, you had your choice of a Brookwood, Parkwood, Kingswood, or

We spent the better part of an evening last summer parked next to this 1956 Chevy Two-Tenat a cruise night in the parking lot of the Elderwood Assisted Living facility in Tonawanda.

The Two-Ten itselfwas a middle child — positioned between Chevy’s b

RealRides of WNY - 1957 Chevy Two-Ten

A few years ago, when we were writing this column for another publication, we featured this 1957 Chevy Two-Ten buried under a pile of snow in Youngstown. I’d forgotten that I returned that spring and took another photo. And here it is. Unusual these days to find a Tri-Five unmolested. Hopefully this one has (will?) remain in this pretty much stock condition.Jim Corbran, RRofWNYGot a RealRide

RealRides of WNY - 1956 Chevy Bel Air

We’re letting someone else do the heavy lifting this week as we ease ourselves into 2017: It’s Day 5 of Ex-Pat Week — WNYers living out of town sending us their finds!Tri-Five Chevys (1955-57) are still a big draw in the collector world, but examples such as this 1956 Chevy Bel Air often seem to be the red-headed stepchild of the bunch ('55s are so popular because they were the f
