I think I've just added a new color combo to my first gen Riviera colors wish list. Titian Red in 54, what is that Bernie?

Eight coats of Claret Mist Metallic over red oxide primer in 1981. The vinyl top is off at the moment and I have been leisurely sanding for the next repaint (that might be the last time for me). Even though I have recaptured the originality of the bare top, my current plan is a two toning with a silver top and black cherry lower.

I fully plan to plagiarize this:

 

If I don't like the silver I will scuff it and go solid maroon.

 

The nice lady at Clark's has agreed to do a stock '64 interior in gray with burgundy piping. The rear hinged doors may also become a reality. That is one of the reasons I have decided to bring the '60 Electra to the Nationals this year, picked up the white paint for that last Friday.

 

Now, the idea of copying Rolls-Royce style on a Buick. You gotta be a friend of Bill's to do that.... no, not that one! Bill Mitchell, the car guy.

Bernie

 

Oh, if the door thing happens they will be electric motorized, actuated by '47-48 hood releases.

I have had the car for 38 years this May, so I guess a little monkeying around with it. We have a tailor in town who has made me a couple of nice suits. Maybe I will show him some of Bill Mitchell's suits and get one to go with the car.

I could be wrong but from what I can see, I think it is the intersection of Hwy 66 (Business Loop 40) and Taylor Street in Amarillo Texas.

I agree with Amarillo.  US 66 and US 40 cross just ahead (according to the Federal Highway signs)

If it was my neighborhood, the one in back just hooked a chain around the rear axle.

You known, there always seemed to be something immortal about those '53 Buicks.
