RealRides of WNY - 1971 Corvette

This 1971 Chevrolet Corvetterepresents my favorite generation of America’s sports car — which covered the model years 1968-72. I know, purists (experts, even) might say that these particular cars spanned the years 1968-82, but from a styling standpoint, I think a line was crossed when the federally-mandated bumper regulations spelled the end of the Vette’s chrome bumpers —

RealRides of WNY - 1977 Monte Carlo

This 1977 Chevrolet Monte Carlorepresents the Bow Tie manufacturer’s final year for the big personal luxury coupe. No, not the Monte’sfinal year — merely the year before downsizing hit GM’s mid-sized cars, including Chevy's entry. For MY 1977, Chevy informed us that “…personal-size car referred less to size than to state of mind… appealing to a particula

RealRides of WNY - 1984 Camaro

It’s not often these days that you come across a stock-looking 1984 Chevrolet Camaro Z28. It seems most of them have some kind of zoomy-looking rims, flashy paint job, or some very weird stance. But, today’s RealRide owner, Tom Krause, went out of his way a couple of years ago to find this one, and he plans on keeping it looking just like it is. Standard on the ’84 Z28 was Chevy&

RealRides of WNY - 1992 Lexus SC 400

This gorgeous 1992 Lexus SC 400is owned by Buffalo’s Zachary Jenney, and we’ve been meaning to get pictures of it since he bought it last year. Fate finally brought Zac, me, and the SC 400 together in one place last week when we both ended up with our cars in Tonawandaat the Canal Fest Car Show. The SC 400’s Toyota roots are pretty evident in these photos, with more than a passin

RealRides of WNY - 1982 Cadillac

Feeling a little poetic, the brochure copywriters for the 1982 Cadillac Coupe deVillebegan their description: “There is something very special about owning a 1982 Cadillac. It’s ride and pride…the room inside.”Okay, so the rest of it didn’t rhyme at all, but it was still very Cadillac. Standard all ’82 deVilles was Cadillac’s “remarkable new HT 4100

RealRides of WNY - 1969 Opel Kadett

This 1969 Opel Kadett LShearkens back to a day when every automobile showroom in Americaseemed to needa compact to sell, regardless of who built it. Yes, the German Opel was manufactured by General Motors, but still… it was pretty much the polar opposite of every other car it shared space with in U.S. Buick showrooms. The Kadett, which Buick advertised as The Mini-Brute, was available in th

RealRides of WNY - 1938 Chevrolet

While doing a little research on this 1938 Chevrolet Standardcoupe, I believe I came across the web page where it was listed for sale a while back. If you’re looking at the photos and scratching your head, know that this is not your Grandfather’s Chevy — it’s a right-hand drive Chevrolet built and sold by GM's Holden subsidiary in Australia, and according to the web page wh

RealRides of WNY - 1992 Volkswagen Corrado

I wonder if the original buyer of this 1992 Volkswagen Corrado SLCwas swayed by the brochure’s list of standard equipment — a list headed by Fahrvergnügen. More likely it was the stuff that followed: 2.8L, 178 hp VR6; 5-speed manual transmission; ABS; independent suspension… the list went on and on for two pages. The Corrado’s looks probably didn’t hurt either.

RealRides of WNY - 1979 Chevy Malibu Classic

Yesterday in this space we featured one of General Motors’ 1977 downsized big cars, and today we have one of their smaller mid-sized offerings: a 1979 Chevrolet Malibu Classic. First downsized for model year 1978 (when the Chevelle moniker was put to rest), in 1979 the Malibu came in two-door coupes and four-door sedans as well as station wagons. The two-door would go away after the 1981 mod

RealRides of WNY - 1990 Toyota Supra

At a glance this 1990 Toyota Supradoesn’t seem to have much in common with the recently announced 2020 model (which was developed with — huh? — BMW, who’s badging their version as a Z4). But, they areboth rear-wheel-drive hatchbacks with 3-liter inline six-cylinder engines: the 1990 packed Toyota’s 3.0L L6 DOHC 24V Turbo; while under the hood of the 2020 is BMW’
