  1. I am not associated with this listing Seen on Instagram http://www.jonathanthomasmotorcars.com
  2. This show was first broadcast in 2014 so it might have been discussed previously. A gorgeous burgundy 1965 Riviera is featured in this episode. I just watched it on Netflix but there is a copy on YouTube also (though in a truncated format). Watch it on Netflix if you can. (episode C4:E13) The credits list the car courtesy of James A Roberts. Read about the Riviera here: http://www.jrmediation.com/1965-buick.htm
  3. Painted drums

    Wow, you are making me feel bad for having had my drums painted
  4. How did you paint your brake booster? I recently had my brake master cylinder replaced but not the booster and mine is very dingy looking like yours was. What did you do to clean it up and repaint it? Which brand of gold cadmium paint did you use?
  5. It will be interesting to see if any of these "Sold" cars end up getting relisted due to the sale not being completed by the buyer. I don't have stats but it appears a fair number of "Sold" Ebay listed cars are relisted for one reason or another, often several times before the deal is finally consummated. (so to speak)
  6. Where did you order your springs from?
  7. Cheap shocks for a 63-65

    I found and ordered a front and rear set of original NOS fluid filled shocks for my 68. I was concerned about dried seals in them. My mechanic checked them out and said they were good in his opinion. I had them installed at the same time I had the bags installed in the rear springs. The ride of the car is a lot less bouncy and not harsh at all since getting rid of the old shocks. The old shocks were the old spiral body units, so maybe they were the originals? I don't know.
  8. I have been tracking this one for several weeks. I almost wish I had seen this one before I bought the Aqua Zephyr last year. I like that the rear tail light bezels don't appear to have any major pitting. Rare for these cars, it seems.

    Nice article in the Bugle. Congratulations.

    Our 1968 Buick Riviera "The Aqua Zephyr" out in the first (and possibly only) snow of the year. Fayetteville, NC Doesn't the Aqua Mist turquoise just POP against the white of the snow?

  12. Mr Lyons is "Ripnriv" on Instagram. You can see a lot of pictures of his autocross Riviera there.
  13. It's funny to run across this response because someone on Instagram requested a size comparison between a First Gen Riv and a 1966 Chevelle. The response above was perfect to answer that question!
