  1. David contacted me again so I thought I would bring this back to the top. His consignment period has expired, and he has not been able to sell his Riviera yet. So, I thought I would mention he has lowered his price a bit and would really like to find a new owner that would appreciate it as much as he has. New price is $20K and is negotiable, I’ll add a couple more pictures too. Again, contact David if interested.

  3. Great question Tom!!! I couldn't see them either until Gabriel posted the close-up WITH the arrows! I agree, it does seem well done, but, as others have said, why not a Nailhead?
  4. Thought I would post a quick link on this before letting the thread fade away. A summary with a few different pictures has been added to the ROA website, I'll attach a link if anyone wants to take a look ... Sixth ROA Southeastern Regional Meet Summary
  5. Mike, The numbers after the engine and trans code have been discussed on other POP threads. My understanding is, they are numbered starting from the "prior" year, so, your D434 engine would have been manufactured on the 69th day of 1968, and your BT490 transmission would have been manufactured on the 125th day of 1968. So, with those numbers it does make sense, the engine built in March, and the Transmission built in April, then the complete car in May. So if the numbers on the POP match the numbers on the engine and trans you should have the complete package. Hope this is what you were looking for,
  6. The "73/72" looks to have the correct bumpers but missing the rubber strips that are supposed to be mounted to them? A '71 bumper would not have the holes for the rubber strips. Strange comments by the seller for sure ... "Manufactured in September, 1972 but titled as 1973." & "In response to a bidder comment, I want to clarify that this vehicle has 1972 body style (and was manufactured in 1972). It is listed as 1973 because that is how it was titled when I bought it (and still is)" Possibly a title error from new? OR, who knows?
  7. RARE buckets in the '70! You don't see them, hardly ever, on the 1970 Rivieras, even the GS version. Looks interesting, but pricey?!?!?
  8. As others have said ... Congrats! Great looking Riv, looking forward to seeing it up close and personal.
  9. Andrew, Yes, the Coral Mist '64 is nice! Thanks for adding the picture Steve. The Maroon '65 is a bit modified and is a custom color, I don't remember what he said it was but it did look good.
  10. Steve, Obviously, you are getting help with your “correcting” needs, I can’t help as much with that, but, I can tell you my experience with the BCA judging. When the BCA Nationals were here in NC in 2012 I decided to take a couple of my last generation Rivs just to kind of see what happened. Like you said, you are not going to make any big changes, those were my thoughts too, I just kind of wanted to see what happened with them. Keep in mind that even though there is a judging manual the “judges” may or may not “really” know a lot about what they are judging. The first thing I noticed when I checked in at the meet was in the manual they have their “Formal Judging Form”, and they also have a “Formal Judging Form-Modern Vehicles”, which I assumed would be used for my ’95 and ’99 Riv. There isn’t a huge difference with the content of each, it just seemed odd to me that they would have an updated form and not use it for those year cars? Like I said I wasn’t going to make any changes from their results I just wanted to check it out since it was so close. I counted around 12 deductions for my ’95 because of things I had done to it, and it only received 4 deductions! I have talked to others that have judged at BCA meets and they told me that in the judges’ meetings and classes they are told not to “kill the car”, so I guess that was the theory they used on mine? But, there were a few items that were specifically pointed out in the manual that were not deducted on the judging form? Just thought I would pass along what I experienced with the 400-point judging, I say go for it, even if just for curiosities sake.
  11. At nine there might be such a thing! Especially when you're poor like me! I need to either get to work on them and/or get more space for them. Hopefully one of these days real soon.
  12. Sounds Great Mike! We have a get together in Archdale, NC in September, you are welcome to join us with or with-out a Riviera! It would be great if you are successful with your purchase and are able to bring one, but not a requirement.
  13. Forgot to add a picture of our personal tour of the National Parts Depot collection by Rick Schmidt. OH, and the 2 Rivieras in their collection …
  14. Bill, I got a few decent group shots of the Rivieras, I won’t bore everyone with the individual pictures of the cars though. And of course, our usual group picture of a GREAT bunch of members and guests that came!
  15. Thank you, Steve, We appreciate everyone’s participation, it makes all the efforts worth it!
