  1. A thread for posting pictures and stories of Riviera’s seen on the road or on the cyber highway. Please consider editing any overly obtrusive FB, IG etc hash tags id’s etc I’ll jumpstart it with these
  2. Ah was hoping the teens Buick expert would weigh in. So the nice clean new Buick’s are likely the new ‘17 arrivals would you say?
  3. Bringing back to the top
  4. Nevermind @wndsofchng06 I forgot, the sign I was referring to above was the sign that was still wrapped in a blanket and we loaded and unloaded into the back of the pickup at Hershey about forty- eleven times. Here’s a picture of it before it got wrapped. Can’t wait to mount on the Buick Sales and Service.
  5. Having seen a few nice and not before posted dealership photo's in the many recently started photo threads, just wanted to bring this thread back up in hopes more will use it to post their dealership finds. Here is one of my favorites of an early dealership. Note the Goodyear Service Station painted sign. Look familiar @wndsofchng06? Can anyone date this basedon the year of Buicks in front
  6. Can’t confirm but saw on social media today that the Norman Timbs 1948 Special Buick Streamliner was destroyed in the Malibu fire today.

    Find the Buick

    or a ‘57 Chevrolet I suppose, but I’m seeing a ‘54 Buick, in Cashmere White. Maybe it’s just me, but I’m happy with it. 😄

    How buttercup got her groove back

    Thanks for the update. Considering that is a 24,000 mile car, you really should go over and make sure it gets done correct, per the thread on the ‘54 Buick Highway. Just a thought. Sorry for the highjack Matt, now back to your story. Here’s a few teaser pictures. Check these sweet door panels! And the trunk (with all 10,454 parts to be reinstalled)

    How buttercup got her groove back

    Actually I believe it was only a couple of Blue Moons over dinner at Red Robin in Hershey with Matt and Matt (no I wasn't seeing double, Matt aka Jackofalltrades). Later, Matt took off to the casino and Matt and I were headed back to the hotel. Matt had just heard from the insurance adjuster what he would be getting for his wrecked Century. When I heard it, I exclaimed something to the effect of "well how about that s***, that's exactly what I was planning on asking for Buttercup.....) and the rest is history. And let me add this. Matt, aka Yung Mi, there is nobody else I know that I would rather see Buttercup go to than you, a truly great Buick guy who I am proud to call my friend. As I've stated before, while it is sad seeing some of my '54's leave the Gardens, I am happy to be able to place them with fellow Buick friends rather than the possible alternative which we just witnessed last week at Bob's. I was so happy to see what you did with the barnfind Century and love hearing your plans for the lil 2 dr sedan I sold you. I figured adding the Roadmaster may be just what it would take to finalize converting you from being such a '55 nut. Guess we will see. By the way, I freshened the MMO in the cylinders and gave the engine a spin the other day. Oh and I also put Kowpi on mouse patrol so she is good til you get the NC Pole Barn cleaned out. after all all we don’t want the poor meeses doing this going up the road
