RealRides of WNY - 1959 Cadillac

This 1959 Cadillac Sixty-Two is owned by RealRides reader Anthony Frandina of Derby. (The photo at the right was taken at last summer's WNY Cadillac & LaSalle Club's show at Keyser Cadillac in Williamsville.) If there was such a thing an as entry-level Cadillac in 1959, it was the series Sixty-Two, which was available as a two-door hardtop, convertible, and two different four-door hardtops: a

RealRides of WNY - 1955 Rambler Country Club

What? A black & white photo? Yes… I took this back in the 1970s as a slide, and the slide didn’t survive too well over the years (maybe I should try and hunt down that guy in the white shirt also taking photos and see if his looks any better, lol). When I scanned the slide the colors were way off so, it was this or sepia. Either way, this 1955 Rambler Country Club is pretty swell-

RealRides of WNY - Roadster of the Future

Today we’re featuring a RealRide from the future. This zoomy-looking roadster is just one of many penned by almost-8-year-old Payton Perry of Williamsville. Payton spent a good part of the morning sketching his dream cars while his Mom, Kelly, was working the ECC table at the recent high school auto tech student competition at Erie Community College’s Vehicle Technology Training Center

RealRides of WNY - 1988 Ford Crown Victoria

You don’t see a lot of these without the fake wood-grained siding, but I think it makes this 1988 Ford Crown Victoria wagon look handsome — and less like something from a National Lampoon “Vacation” movie. Back in the sixties, Ford was known (or at least, called themselves) the Wagonmaster, as their station wagons were always big sellers. This well-preserved example was spo

RealRides of WNY - 1978 Buick Skylark

From back when (almost) every GM division had to have a version of every car comes this 1978 Buick Skylark. Available in two- or four-door sedan form and three-door hatchback, the Skylark and its GM cousins from Chevy, Pontiac, and Olds soldiered-on through the 1979 model year when they were replaced in the lineup by GM’s front-wheel drive X-Cars. A close look at this silver two-door, seen r

RealRides of WNY - 1978 Chevrolet Monte Carlo

The last time I posted one of these we got some rather disparaging remarks from fans of older versions of themarque. But this 1978 Chevrolet Monte Carlo had 358,190 siblings leave the factory in this, it’s first down-sized year, so somebody liked them. Yes, sales were down from the bigger ’77 models, but 358,191 sales, I don’t believe, can be considered a failure. At the risk of

Real Rides of WNY - 1971 Mercury Cougar

Although not as rare as the XR-7 model (only 1,717 produced), you’ve gotta admit it’s not every day that you see a 1971 Mercury Cougar — convertible or hardtop. The Cougar, you may remember, was Mercury’s upscale cousin to Ford’s Mustang. Over the years the two nameplates definitely took different paths (at one point the Cougar line consisted of four-door sedans and s
