RealRides of WNY (on the road) - Volvo 245

Seeing a Volvo 245, c1977, in this condition still on the streets usually means one of two things: you’re in Vermont, or you’re in the Pacific Northwest. Okay, or maybe you’re in Sweden. This Berkshire Green wagon was spotted a couple of years ago in Seattle, Washingtonby RealRidescontributor (and my eldest offspring) Katie. Looking through some old brochures, for the second time

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 - 1965 Sport Fury

There are probably a few of you out there throwing up your hands right now, saying “Git ridda those whitewalls!” Regular readers of this space already know that we approve of the rubber choice on this 1978 Mercedes-Benz 450 SL. We also give a big thumbs-up to the color combinatioin here, which appears to be Nickel Green with what looks like Beige leather. We saw this RealRidelast summe

RealRides of WNY - 1964 Riviera

The first-generation 1964 Buick Rivierais often mentioned in the same sentence as the words “most beautiful car of all time.” Pretty lofty praise. They certainly were handsome cars, especially for their time, and they kept the same design (pretty much) from their debut for MY 1963 through 1965. Subsequent cars were still (IMO) pretty sharp, at least until the fender skirts arrived for

RealRides of WNY - 1952 Chevy Styline

Here’s one from the year of my birth: a 1952 Chevrolet Styline Deluxe Sport Coupe. Although it’s one of the less expensive body styles, someone splurged for extras, such as the two-tone paint job (Emerald Green over SpringGreen), whitewall tires, wheel trim rings, a radio (or, at least an antenna, Lol), dual outside mirrors, and a gas tank filler guard. Chevy offered a total of five di
