  1. Just wire the switch to remove +12 VDC from the ignition coil instead.

  3. Someone installed Pertronix on my '67 before I bought it. No issues so far, but I do have an original date-correct rebuilt distributor (with points & condenser) just in case...

    Lovely!
  5. New Wheels for 63 Rivi

    Try searching for topics under the Riviera Owner's Association (ROA) area in the Buick forum. This question comes up quite frequently and I recall some posts within the last month talking about this subject. While you're at it, consider joining the ROA -- you'll receive "The Riview" and have access to additional Riviera articles and supplier contact information. http://forums.aaca.org/forum/73-buick-riviera-riviera-owners-association/
  6. Torque converter clutch issue? Flex plate and/or inspection cover interference? Is the noise anywhere near the bellhousing?
  7. Yeah, I assumed the guy didn't know the difference between a spreadbore and squarebore carb. I'm also suspicious about the pedigree of this 'GS', but there's now way to tell without going to see it in person. ...and what happened to the power steering reservoir cap?
  8. I like to think of it as 'personality'.
  9. I personally appreciate originality; as in 'presentable', but flawed original finish over a repaint. Of course, once the paint finish passes the point of no return and repaint is necessary, options in my order of preference are: (1) original 'born-with' color, (2) available factory color and (2) 'special color' - color available on another brand in the corporate palette (e.g., a year appropriate Cadillac color on a Buick). I agree with JZRIV in that sometimes a color change can really enhance curb appeal...
