RealRides of WNY - 1977 Rolls-Royce

How often do you come across a 1977 Rolls-Royce Silver Shadow IIin a WNY used car lot? In my travels, almost never; yet here’s one now, seen a month or so ago in Clarence. The reg sticker seems to indicate it’s been off the road since at least 2016, but wherever it’s been sitting since then it looks like it was well-sheltered. Too bad about the setting sun infringing on the rear

RealRides of WNY - 1978 Cherokee

We last saw this 1978 Jeep Cherokeejust down the street from the RealRidesoffices. A few weeks ago we spotted it again in a used car lot on Main Street in Buffalo. Yes, youcould have your very own edition of what many consider to be the grand-daddy of SUVs. Back in the day, Jeep wasn’t exactly sure what to call it, as the term SUV hadn’t been widely used yet (if at all) — one bro

RealRides of WNY - 1968 Dodge

Back when this 1968 Dodge Sportsmanvan was new, they came in two versions: the base Sportsman (which this one appears to be) and the Custom Sportsman. On both, an intermediate bench seat was standard equipment, as were the swing-out windows on both sides next to that middle bench seat; this one also has optional swing-out windows on the rear doors, as well as what looks like a factory radio antenn

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 - 1973 Plymouth

When was the last time you saw a big fuselage-bodied wagon out in the wild? This one, a 1973 Plymouth Sport Suburban, was seen last month sitting in a North Tonawandaused car lot. The wood-grained Sport Suburban was the Plymouth Fury line’s most deluxe version; there were also Suburban and Custom Suburban models (below). The least expensive, the Suburban, was available only as a two-seater a

RealRides of WNY - 1976 Olds

The dealer sticker on the trunk of this 1976 Oldsmobile Ninety-Eight Regencywould indicate that it was bought at Eagleson Oldsmobile-Cadillac-Chevrolet in Olney, Illinois. Surprisingly (these days) they’re still doing business in Olney, now as Eagleson Automotive Center, featuring the entire GM lineup (although, their web page says Chev-Buick-GMC, while a photo of the building also has a Cad

RealRides of WNY - 1999 SL 500

Here’s something you don’t often see on the used car lot of a Chevrolet dealer — a 1999 Mercedes-Benz SL 500, spotted a few years ago at Ki-Po Chevrolet in Ransomville. While we were there we should have stopped in to see if our hopes were indeed fact: that it was traded in on a new Chevy Spark, Lol. If you’re curious, below is a brochure illustration of an SL 500 with the

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 - 1964 Coupe De Ville

You never know what you might come across in some of those small, neighborhood used car lots. Earlier this summer we found this rather solid-looking 1964 Cadillac Coupe De Villein the front row of a lot in Lackawanna. Although it’s not so odd to see these days on new cars in every price range, back when this De Ville was new it was rare to ever find a car like this wearing a set of blackwall

RealRides of WNY - 1966 Ford F-100

If you were in the market back in 2008 for a short-bed pickup that would fit in your garage, you might have given this 1966 Ford F-100a look as it sat in an Irvingused car lot. This was the last year that Ford would tout the truck’s Twin-I-Beam front suspension with its own fender badge. The Twin-I-Beam system featured two separate front axles, one left and one right, which “…pe
