  1. Yeah, the double whitewalls are very cool, too. Do they even sell those anymore?
  2. Lovely evening at the Edmonds WA waterfront
  3. Yeah I think that could be very cool, especially if the LEDs are not too bright. They do make halo bulbs that fit the 63-64 cars.
  4. What might sell that car close to asking price are pictures of the underside and the engine bay. I don't think 36,000 miles are necessarily any better than 86,000 miles, it's still 50 years old, you know.
  5. I've done LEDs on a previous car and it's why I went with these halogens, because the LEDs can easily blind people. It just splashes light everywhere. Really hard to retrofit a car for LEDs -- the modern cars that have them do a good job of controlling that aim. It's all about the housing. I need to check the aim on these tonight. The light output is very nice.
  6. So what do you guys think of these of replacement lamps? I mistakenly thought they were sold in pairs so I will order two more for the brights, but I think they look fantastic. I'm not a stickler for a totally stock look.
  7. There are several options on Amazon, even. I purchased a basic gray CoverKing cover for about $85. My Rivi sits in a carport and surprisingly that cover is holding up OK after 2 years. I make sure to take it off and dust the car at least every two weeks. I does hang a bit loosely though. For a car in a garage like you have, that's probably fine. I have thought about buying the custom fit cover from CoverKing, but that's more like $280. I have one of those on my NSX (it sits outside and needs more protection).
  8. I don't even have a tilt wheel and I have this problem. Passenger side brake light doesn't go on. Wish the wiring under the column was easier to access, my back aches every time I think about it.
  9. You mean "ugly" Wowwwww. Starsky and Hutch went too far.
  10. You get 400 points from me - stunning!
  11. Those leather seats should look nice after a good reconditioning/cleaning. Same with the engine bay and trunk. I like it. Everything is there.
  12. Also that black 65 has hub caps. I figured all GS cars came with the rally wheels??
  13. Lovely original 65 Riviera on Bring a Trailer up for auction! I nearly put my car on there last month so I'm really curious how the bidders respond to this one.
  14. Sounds like the seller owns two other Rivis and is selling his 67. Fresh paint. Windshield crack. The Star Wars air cleaner is off and unrestored (that'd be a mint if it was good). Iffy aftermarket wheels. But overall, really nice condition driver car. Just a couple of weeks ago, I nearly listed my 64 on there. Backed out before sending them a full batch of photos. I don't find they get good prices on 60s American cars. Maybe this one will prove me wrong!
  15. The data plate I think shows this was originally a white car too, although I LOVE Bamboo Cream. If you're looking for top dollar, a color change doesn't help, even when it's a factory color like this. That said, if I didn't have my car, I would absolutely be bidding on this one.
