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’

RealRides of WNY - 1985 Cadillac Eldorado

Just because the calendar says that it’s winter, doesn’t mean we WNYers can’t still go shopping for a classic car. Shopping outsideeven. Just a few weeks ago we came across this nice-looking 1985 Cadillac Eldorado sitting on a lot in Tonawanda— maybe a bit out of its element these days, being a Florida car and all. The odometer reads somewhere around 87,000 miles — no

RealRides of WNY - 1986 Oldsmobile Cutlass Supreme

This 1986 Oldsmobile Cutlass Supreme Broughamwas photographed by RealRidesspotter and Parkside resident Steve Cichonthis past fall in a North Buffaloparking lot. The Cutlass reigned supreme back during the Reagan administration, when they were seemingly everywhere. Available as this two-door coupe as well as a four-door sedan, the Cutlass Supreme Brougham came standard with a 3.8-liter V-6, which

RealRides of WNY - 1980s Jaguar XJ-S HE

If you’re wondering what the “HE” stands for on the hind end of this 1980s Jaguar XJ-S HE, that would be high efficiency. Which seems rather absurd in a car with a V-12 engine lurking under the bonnet. A new engine design was said to give a power increase to 295 hp. lists the HE fuel “economy” at a paltry 14 mpg. An improvement from the previous
