YAK Car Pic of the Day

KONICA MINOLTA DIGITAL CAMERA

This is probably one of the more undignified pics we’ve posted in a while here. Did someone really saw the beak off of this 1969 Oldsmobile Cutlass? I know it originally extended down to meet the bumper (I guess you’ll have to just imagine the bumper), and I believe it was all one piece with the hood. Wow, the things you see. This was found a couple of summers ago in Niagara Falls.

If you liked your small pony cars big, this 1972 Mustang Mach I would have been right up your alley. This was about as big as the Mustang would get; just one more year of this same body style until the introduction of the downsized 1974 Mustang II, based on the — ugh! — Pinto! Saw this white one a couple of years ago in Niagara Falls.

As a young lad of 12 or so I was in love with the 1965 Ford Mustang. Sales would indicate that a lot of other folks, who actually had money and were old enough to buy cars, felt the same way, as sales of the ’65 totaled almost 681,000. Of course, that’s figuring in the early production cars, commonly known as 1964-1/2 models because they came out in April. Either way, thatsalotta cars! This red convertible, looking very smart with the optional wire wheel covers, was seen last summer in Niagara Falls.

The 1973 Plymouth Valiant was always a sensible, reliable car. Maybe that’s why, once the Duster coupe replaced the two-door sedan version, it pretty much left the Valiant in its… dust. Who wants sensible when you can have something that looks better? Lol. This gold four-door, which looks like it was purchased new at Schmitt’s Garage in Bowmansville, was seen during better weather in the Town of Niagara.

Another gently-used pickup is this 1992 Ford F-150, seen often tooling around the City of Niagara Falls. Although this photo was taken a few years back, I still see this truck regularly; the last time wearing a pair of snow tires on the rear axle. It must get washed often to keep the rust away. Nice.

Before it turned into the poster child for Pimp My Ride, the original Cadillac Seville was a tasteful, smaller alternative to the large barge Fleetwoods and DeVilles. Based on the Chevy Nova platform, this design ran from model years 1975-79; then, stuff happened. This yellow example is most likely a 1978, and is currently taking offers in Niagara Falls.

With gas prices dropping (again) the market might be just right for something like this mid-1990s Chevrolet Caprice Classic station wagon. Look up the phrase “go big or stay home” in the dictionary, and odds are there will be a photo of one of these cars to go along with the definition. Just for good measure, and because that’s the way The General rolled in the ’90s,  there were also Oldsmobile and Buick versions of this barge. For my money though, I’d see the USA in the Chevrolet! This one is languishing on a corner lot in the City of Niagara Falls.

I’d say the tires are too large for the rims of this 1966 Ford Mustang GT convertible. They barely fit in the front wheelwells, and the rear has been raised a bit, allowing them some clearance, but ruining the look of the car in the bargain. I know, tastes differ. Let the owner of this car say it looks great on his own blog. Other than that, nice-looking car. Seen last summer in Niagara Falls.
