RealRides of WNY - 1971 Corvette

This 1971 Chevrolet Corvette Stingrayconvertible is sporting the optional removable hard top. It’s definitely an unusual look, seldom seen these days (by me, at least). This one is even moreunusual, as the brochure says that the top wasavailable with a black vinyl covering, and this one is white, offsetting (what I believe to be) its Marlboro Maroon body color.

But tell me, how many of these first-gen Montes have you ever seen without

RealRides of WNY - 1956 Ford Fairlane Victoria

(Day 5 of FoMoCo Week)Someone correct me if I’m wrong here, but I don’t believe that black vinyl tops were a factory optionwhen this 1956 Ford Fairlane Victoria was new. It does, however, look pretty sharp! You almost never see one of these in white these days, as it seems that most of them are wearing a 1950s two-tone combination. Victoria was Ford-speak back in the day for their pill
