RealRides of WNY - 1930 Chevy

It’s not likely that many RealRidesreaders were around when this 1930 Chevrolet Coupewas new, so here’s a rundown on the other models offered that year: the Sedan was a six-window four-door closed car, while the Club Sedan was a four-windowed version; the Coach was a two-door sedan with room for five while today’s RealRide, the Coupe, was called in the brochure “…the

RealRides of WNY - 1972 Mach 1

This 1972 Ford Mustang Mach 1is a one-owner car, having been bought new by Fredonia’s Joel Polito at Hartley Ford, which was also located in Fredonia back in the day. This 49-year-old pony car has only about 80k miles on the odometer, and is equipped with a 351cid V8 under that scooped hood, connected to a console-mounted SelectShift automatic transmission. The black vinyl interior still loo

RealRides of WNY - 1990 Beretta

You could have knocked me over with a feather when I returned home from a Thursday cruise night at the Anchor Bar in Amherstrecently and discovered that this 1990 Chevrolet Beretta Indy GTcoupe was notthe same one I photographed a few years ago at another cruise night in East Amherst (see it here). Chevy built only about 1,500 of these yellow Indy 500 pace car commemoratives (as well as about anot

RealRides of WNY - 1977 Toronado

Was following this 1977 Oldsmobile Toronado Broughama few weeks ago when it pulled into a Buffalodriveway, so I stopped and took a few photos. The owner told me he’d bought it from an estate, where it’d been sitting for a while. Looks pretty darn good for a 44-year-old car which, let’s face it, wasn’t really built with that much longevity in mind. For 1977, the Toro came in

RealRides of WNY - 1978 Toronado

I don’t imagine that the young owner of this 1978 Oldsmobile Toronadowill be offended if I call his ride one of the more unusual entries in May’s car show which was sponsored by Solé at Woodlawn Beach, located out front of Woodlawn Beach State Park, which can be argued is in Woodlawn, Blasdell, or Hamburg depending on who you ask (I’m going with Woodlawn). Toronados weren&

RealRides of WNY - 1982 Corvette

This 1982 Chevrolet Corvette Collector Edition(6,759 produced) was from the first year the ‘Vette could be had with Cross-Fire Injection, and they proudly announced it with a fender badge. The brochure told us this was also the first year for “…the newly designed, fully lifting, frameless glass hatchback with remote release.”The Collector Edition cars had a specific VIN as

RealRides of WNY - 1950 DeSoto

Came across this 1950 DeSoto DeLuxeClub Coupe a few weeks ago in an Amherstparking lot, and immediately recognized it as a car owned by a friend of mine. I was puzzled though as to why it was wearing a pair of the new N.Y. tags. Later that same day I saw it parked in a driveway in the neighborhood of theRealRidesoffices, and called said friend who told me that yes, he had sold it to someone who li

RealRides of WNY - 1950 Mercury

This 1950 Mercurysix-passenger coupe was seen a few summers ago at a Cruising-on-the-Qweekly cruise night on Queen Street in Niagara Falls, Ontario. The ’49-’51 Mercurys looked nothing like their Ford counterparts, which could not be said for their predecessors. They shared a basic body shape with Lincoln, with the four-door models even copying the Lincoln’s suicide doors (below)

RealRides of WNY (on the road) - 1970 Europa

The vanity plate on this 1970 Lotus Europa S2pretty much says it all — although a guy like me might be able to actually get into this iconic mid-engine British sports car, it might just be 2 LOWto get back out without assistance. A January 1970 article in Road Testmagazine says “The low slung body calls for some agility in the art of entry, but once inside the cockpit there is ample ro

RealRides of WNY - 1941 Chevy

Coming across something like this at a car show/cruise night isn’t all that unusual. What isunusual is to find a 1941 Chevrolet Special De Luxeout in the wild, parked in town on a side street. This one looks like a five-passenger coupe, and seems to be in great shape! The two-door coupe was one of five body-styles offered for MY 1941, along with: two-door Town Sedan, four-door Sport Sedan, f
