RealRides of WNY - 1976 Century

You hang around cars for as long as I have and you figure you’ve seen just about everything. But n-o-o-o! of course you haven’t! Case in point — this 1976 Buick Century Custom, which is a replica of that year’s Indy 500 pace car. At first glance I was scratching my head wondering why Buick didn’t offer the more potent Regal in Grand National trim as that year’s

RealRides of WNY - 1971 Charger

When we saw this 1971 Dodge Charger R/Tback in 2017 at the annual Labor Day car show on the river in the City of Tonawanda, I was pretty sure the color was Plum Crazy. Looking at the photos all these years later, now I’m not so sure. Could be the lighting, could be the camera, could be the computer screen… could be my memory! However, looking at the paint chart, as well as photos of t

RealRides of WNY - 1977 Cougar

Some fans of Mercury’s original pony car entry weren’t perplexed so much about Ford dropping the Montego moniker from its mid-sized lineup in the late 1970s as they were about what they replaced it with. Which brings us to today’s RealRide: a 1977 Mercury Cougar. It wassort of okayin 1974 when they moved the Cougar up a notch in size to compete with the likes of the Chevy Monte C

RealRides of WNY - 1970 Camaro

It’s not often you see a 1970 Chevy Camarolooking like this one these days. Still wearing its factory wheel covers and a set of whitewall tires, we came across it sitting in an Oleanused car lot eleven years ago. This was the inaugural year for the second-gen Mustang fighter — which the brochure cover called “A most unusual car from the place you’d expect: Chevrolet’s

RealRides of WNY - 1973 Cutlass

Not often you come across a 1973 Oldsmobile Cutlass SupremeColonnade Hardtop sans vinyl roof. But here’s one now, seen a few summers ago at a Cruising on the Qevent on Queen Street in Niagara Falls, Ontario. Olds told us in their literature that the new ’73 Cutlass Supreme had “…a new suspension system patterned after [their] bigger Oldsmobiles. So there’s more limou

RealRides of WNY - 1976 Monza

Ironic that we randomly chose this 1976 Chevy Monzaas today’s RealRide— just yesterday we featured a custom-made Corvair-based trailer, and as we all know, the Monza name was used on Corvair models through mostof the 1960s. Monza is of course a city in Italy; it was also the name of a concept car — the 1963 Monza SS — which was kind of a mash-up of a Ferrari and the next-ge

RealRides of WNY - 1977 4-4-2

By the time this 1977 Oldsmobile Cutlass 4-4-2hit the showrooms, it was more about style than substance. Introduced as Olds’ entry into the mid-sized muscle car genre back in MY 1964 as an option package available on any F-85 model except the station wagons, the original 4-4-2’s highlights were a 330cid V8 with 4-barrel carburetion, 4-on-the-floor, and 2 (dual) exhausts. By 1977 the st

RealRides of WNY - 1966 Thunderbird

Another week, another personal luxury coupe from Dearborn trying to blend in with its surroundings. Unlike last week’s example, this 1966 Ford Thunderbird Town Landauforgot to cover its rear flanks, though, Lol… Seen over the summer in Lockportjust a stone’s throw from the locks, based on its exterior this one looks pretty much intact. Not only was the new T-Bird available with

RealRides of WNY - 1977 Cordoba

How many of you can read this entire piece without hearing the immortal words of the actor who played “The mysterious Mr. Roarke”on tv starting in the 1970s? (That’s how he’s described on the IMDb page of… well, youknow the show.) We’re not going to print those wordshere, but needless to say it’s difficult to have a discussion about the 1977 Chrysler Cord

RealRides of WNY - 1983 Mirada

This 1983 Dodge Miradaseems a little odd IMO, for two reasons. First of all, according to the window sticker we saw on the front seat, it came from the factory with Chrysler’s 225cid Slant Six under the hood — it just seems out of character here; that, and the fact that it doesn’t have some sort of a fancy top. A quick peek at the brochure shows more than one optional roof offeri
