RealRides of WNY - 1976 Corvette

Perusing the brochure for the 1976 Chevrolet Corvette Stringray, we uncovered these heretofore unknown (to us) dealer-installed accessories which were available: Litter container (for road trips with the cat?) Tissue/litter container (for those allergic to cat litter?) Light-duty trailer hitch(for weekly grocery shopping?) Engine block heater (for when the ‘Vette is your winter beater?) We

RealRides of WNY - 1950 Ford

Shoebox Fords were one of the favorites of customizers back in the day. This 1950 Fordcoupe has been given the treatmentwith (among other things) 1954 Buick headlights, 1950 Mercury grille sitting under a reshaped hood, 1957 Plymouth wheelcovers, frenched taillights (1951 Nash Rambler Airflyte?) set into revamped rear fenders, and a chopped top. Saw this one in 2014 in the Old S’Cool Room at

RealRides of WNY - 1977 Toronado

This 1977 Oldsmobile Toronadowas produced the year that General Motors downsized its full-sized lineup. But it would be a couple more years until they got around to the Toronado/Buick Riviera/Cadillac Eldorado E-body cars, so this white coupe was still a real garage filler. And that squared-off styling helped fill some of those owners’ garages corner-to-corner! The big Rocket 403cid, 4-bbl V

RealRides of WNY - ɛ̃fini RX-7

From a block away I was pretty sure I knew what this was. As I got closer, I said to myself, “Oh, it’s a Japanese-market right-hand-drive model.” When I stood next to it I found out it wasn’t the Mazda RX-7 I had thought it was. Instead, it was a seldom-seen (in these parts) ɛ̃finiRX-7, ɛ̃fini being the upmarket brand of Mazda which sold in the home market from 1991-97 (whe

RealRides of WNY - 1979 Cordoba

When we ran into the owner of this 1979 Chrysler Cordobalast July at the Clutch Artists Summeramain Williamsville, he told us he’s had the car since it was new. (If you’re reading this too early in the day to be bothered with doing the math, that’s 40 years!)In their promotional literature, Chrysler called it “The personal car with the luxury touch.”From our experienc

RealRides of WNY - 1952 Fleetleader

The Ontario license plate reads BITZNPCS. The car is a 1952 Pontiac Fleetleadercoupe. Itwasn’t sold in the States, and was a mash-up of Pontiac & Chevrolet components. This one, as the tag states, even more so. The rear wheel wells have been radiused to better show-off the Moon disks; from this angle you can see a hint of a front windshield visor; the metalflake paint really sparkles in

RealRides of WNY - 1989 Eldorado

When this 1989 Cadillac Eldoradowas new, GM’s luxury division sold more different models than you could shake a stick at:Allanté, Seville, Eldorado, de Ville, Fleetwood, Fleetwood Sixty Special, and Fleetwood Brougham. And of course a couple of stretch limousines. The price leader Chevy Cavalier-based Cimarron had been ditched for 1989, and it’s doubted that many even noticed. T

RealRides of WNY - 1977 Toronado

At a glance, this 1977 Oldsmobile Toronado Broughamdoesn’t seem to share much with the ground-breaking debut model which bowed for model year 1966. Yes, it still has a v-e-r-y long hood with a proportionately shorter rear deck. But this ’77 is a much bigger car — 227inches long compared to the 1966 car’s 211” length. Width increased an inch-and-a-half, but the squared

RealRides of WNY - 1980 Volare

Day 6 of “Not A Trailer Queen Week” This 1980 Plymouth Volare Dusteris from the model’s second year of production. For 1979 the Duster came with rear-quarter window louvers as well as the tape stripe seen on today’s RealRide. The 1980 Dusters also had Duster nameplates (the ghosts of which you can still see on today’s feature car), extra moldings, whitewalls & whe

RealRides of WNY - 1973 Malibu SS

I’ll admit to being a nose-holder when first viewing GM’s mid-size offerings for MY 1973. The Colonnade styling, featuring frameless door glass, thick B-pillars, and fixed rear quarter windows on the two-door models (plus the discontinuation of the pillarless hardtops) just turned me off. But, as with many things, my opinion has changed over the decades. Now I wouldn’t mind ownin
