  1. Performance Muffler Applications on Reattas

    I really like the Borla Cat-Back system ... Looks like I would have to modify the rear to accommodate the dual exhaust however would definitely look and sound nice. Has anyone ever done this type of exhaust on their Reatta? https://www.borla.com/
  2. Great American Race "Pin" (?)

    Here is a must newer listing for a 1989 Great American Race pin on Ebay: https://www.ebay.com/itm/Interstate-Batteries-Great-American-Race-1989-Disneyland-Norfolk-Wings-Logo-Pin/202063650675?hash=item2f0bee9f73:g:7cAAAOSwI6RZvIIn
  3. Great American Race "Pin" (?)

    Here is the video telecast of the 1989 Great American Race that shows one of the Reatta pace cars in Red timing out the course... see the convertible has the 88-89 interior... its at 8:15 in the video..
  4. Do you think a reproduction for the Reatta owners portfolio nameplate could also be done? I am looking into getting a photo of an original to see the dimensions and script of the nameplate. The quality of the Riviera nameplate that the trophy-house created was excellent!
  5. Has anyone been able to set up a reproduction of the engraved portfolio nameplate true to original form? Does anyone have a photo of the exact script / look and dimensions of the original? I was able to have one done on the Riviera years ago through the process and assistance/help of SilverRiv63 on the Riviera forum(see post below) & would like to look into going through the same process for the Reatta Owners portfolio but need the exact information for the nameplate. Thanks!! At the request of several other Riviera owners, I worked with the trophy shop owner to get a more precise reproduction plate (dimensions more accurate with the original). Here's the final result: If anyone else is interested in a similar plaque, here's what you do: 1) Get permission to use the Riviera logo for your private use. I contacted the GM Heritage Center and they have no problem with people using copyrighted GM material for personal use. You can email Peggy Kelly at margaret.p.kelly@gm.com and request a "No Objection to Use" form. Be sure to include details of what you intend to do and clearly state that this is for personal use. 2) Contact the Trophy House in Burnsville, MN (3140 Highway 13 W., Burnsville, MN 55337). I worked with J. Kevin Kennedy at info@trophyhouseonline.com. If you mention the Riviera plate, he'll know what you are talking about. He will need the name you want on the plate and he'll send you an electronic proof to verify before producing anything. Cost will be around $25 plus shipping. I'm very happy with the reproduction plate and I hope this helps a few others get their own custom plaque. If anyone has any questions, I'd be glad to try and help.

  10. Buick Reatta gap size..?

    Hey Reatta Fans! Does anyone know what the measurement of the gap between the hood and the bumper should be? How can I adjust it if needed?
  11. 1990 Select 60 Restoration project

    GOT IT! Thanks to Marck Barker @ EastCoastReattaParts.com 919.233.1973 Here are a few pics in the garage...more to come as I work on it over the summer...
  12. I received mine last week and installed it over the weekend. Looks Great! Thanks for getting this endeavor started, I really appreciate your foresight to make this happen. The Trophy House was also very professional to deal with.
  13. Thanks for the offer DAVE89: I found a remanfactured part from this company.... http://www.suncoreindustries.com/ installed and was just about a plug and play replacement that seems to be working just fine for the past week so far.... Just could't find a NOS OEM part and was hesitant on one from the yard because to install these the rear suspension needs to be dropped to get to the compressor and did not want to go take all that time to just have to replace again too soon....
  14. Hey Dave! Thanks for the help and and Keep Traveling in your GREAT Riviera... Mine now has about 100,000 miles less than yours @ just 54,000 BUT still driving when I can.... I found a replacement part from this company... if you or anyone is interested and can't find an OEM...... http://www.suncoreindustries.com/ installed and was just about a plug and play replacement that seems to be working just fine for the past week so far.... Just could't find a OEM part.
