Here's the car after I waxed it and then at the church at my recent wedding.

We drove the car 800 miles from my home in Baltimore to our wedding in Erie, PA and back. I think that was probably the longest trip the car has taken for over 30 years and it ran great.

Nice pictures of some beautiful cars. I'd really love to have a boattail. There have been a couple in the corral at Hershey in the past, maybe this year will be my year.

My '67 Riviera...

Even my wife went "Wow!" when I showed her your '67. She likes it better than my '64! Gorgeous.

Many thanks, Brian! I poked around and saw the pics of your '64...OUTSTANDING! In my opinion, white only works on "certain" cars... That being said, YOURS is one of those cars! The wheels you chose add the perfect amount of attitude to a car with such elegance!

The "wheels" Michael chose are the OE cast aluminum wheel covers that were an option in '63 and '64. The '63 covers were all natural aluminum and had a silver Buick tri-shield in the center of a black cap on the knock off (which is separate from the aluminum cover - to remove a wheel, you had to take off the knock off, remove the lug nuts, lay the tire/wheel face down, and unbolt the aluminum cover.) The '64 covers were painted between the "turbine fins" and the center cap had the Riviera R on it; again silver on black.

Here´s a picture of me and my Big Princess in the hot Finnish desert(!?) The girl peeking out is my wife.

Actually, if you remove me from the image, it´s like a commercial from the sixties!

Just a couple of new pics. The grass is green and the sun was shining. And I couldn't resist.

I realized that I hadn't posted a picture of my '65 project yet. I haven't touched it for a long while. Time to get cracking on it!

Here is a picture of my 65 Gran Sport by itself and also with another 65. The second picture was taken at the Washington State 2011 All Buick Open, where mine won Best of Show and the black one won People's Choice. First time the top two awards went to Riviera's in the 18 year history of the show.

Peter,

Is that a white deluxe interior on the flame red GS? If so, please post additional photos; very rare color combo.

it's nice to see all the beautifully restored Rivs. Mine is on the second half restoring the underworld as I call it. The only word that came to mind when looking up from below was "unbelievable". The stories are true that moisture does get underneath rubberized undercoating in spots but thankfully it is only surface rust. To my amazement the brake lines appear to be stainless, just hope all the other lines are too. The frame is being removed for blasting and epoxy.post-58922-143138908512_thumb.jpg

Here is a video review of our 1989 Riviera I had completed by a local fella that is globally known for his Youtube automobile reviews.

Enjoy!
