  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. https://www.carid.com/1964-buick-riviera-headlights/ipcw-conversion-headlights-5-3-4-euro-489023881.html
  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. http://bringatrailer.com/listing/1965-buick-riviera-3/
  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! http://bringatrailer.com/listing/1967-buick-riviera-2/
  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.
