RealRides of WNY - 1991 Geo Storm

It might not be pristine, but you’ve gotta give credit to this 1991 Geo Stormfor still being on the road — or at least it was when we last saw it a few years ago in a Wheatfieldparking lot. Really, when was the last time you saw one? The Geo nameplate was sold by U.S. Chevy dealers to fill a gap in their sub-compact lineup, and it was composed of Japanese vehicles, mostly from Suzuki (

RealRides of WNY - 1963 Sting Ray

This 1963 Chevy Corvette Sting Rayseems like a timely RealRide,what with the recent announcement of the 2020 mid-engine Corvette C8 (see below).Purists will be glad to know that Chevy is still hanging the Stingray moniker on the newest ‘Vette, which will be available in 1LT, 2LT, and 3LT versions with starting MSRPs of $59,995, $67,295, and $71,945 respectively. Back in 1963, the split windo

RealRides of WNY - 1974 Duster 360

Came across this 1974 Plymouth Duster 360at last weekend’s End of Summer Super Cruisesponsored by the Middleport Fire Department, right on the edge of the Erie Canal in Middleport. The Duster 360 came with — what else? — Chrysler’s 360cid V8. It also added a floor shift position for the three-speed manual transmission, as well as body side tape stripes, roof drip rail moldi

RealRides of WNY - 1969 Mustang

The 1969 Ford Mustang SportsRoofwas still a pretty manageable size — bigger than the original models, but nothing like what was to come in a couple more years. Saw this very unmolested example a couple of nights ago at a weekly Cruising on the Qcruise night on Queen Street in Niagara Falls, Ontario. Standard engine was still a straight six — pretty much the same 200cid unit that had be

RealRides of WNY - 1938 Ford

This 1938 Ford DeLuxecoupe features one of my favorite pre-War Ford front ends. Ford must have liked it too, as it was used again for the 1939 Ford Standard models. Actually, that’s what Ford did there for a few years; restyled the DeLuxe models, and used the previous year’s DeLuxe styling for the new Standard models. Keep the neighbors guessing as to what you were driving, I guess. Al

RealRides of WNY - 1963 Sting Ray

There was almost an equal number of sport coupe and convertible models of the 1963 Chevrolet Corvette Sting Rayproduced: 10,594 vs 10,919. This sport coupe was spotted last week nestled amongst a few other classics in a Tonawandaused car row. Hard to say if it’s for sale or not. This was the first year for the restyled Corvette — well, at least restyled from the rear quarter panels for

RealRides of WNY - 1965 Barracuda

Here in the good ol’USA we know this car as a 1965 Plymouth Barracuda. Drive a few miles north back in the day though, and you would have come across these cars badged as Valiant Barracudas (bottom of page), and they were being sold (sans any Plymouth markings) in Chrysler-Plymouth-Fargo dealerships as well as Dodge stores. In the US, the Barracuda came standard with Chrysler’s 225cid

RealRides of WNY - 1978 Electra 225

There are several ways to announce to the world that you’re now building smaller big cars. An ad for the 1978 Buick Electra 225, like this one which we saw last week in a Tonawandaparking lot, asked readers to“Consider… the fact that this full-size luxury car sits on a wheelbase occupied by some mid-size cars of only a few years ago. Thus making it lithe and nimble.”You&rs

RealRides of WNY - 1977 Olds 4-4-2

This 1977 Oldsmobile Cutlass 4-4-2is from the brand’s final year for the Colonnade styling (pillared cars with frameless door glass). For MY 1978, some of Olds’ mid-sized cars would feature the controversial (IMO) aeroback shape, which was shared with Buick, but (wisely) shunned by Chevy and Pontiac. The Cutlass 4-4-2 (it’s actual name for 1977) wasn’t quite the car that it

RealRides of WNY - 1988 Cutlass Supreme

You saw a ton of these driving around in the 1980s, but it’s not often these days that you see a decent 1988 Oldsmobile Cutlass Supreme Classicout and about — especially one with a t-top. By this time, Olds was really cashing in on the popularity of the Cutlass nameplate. There was of course this model, which was the original (if you will) rear-wheel-drive Cutlass mid-size car that sha
