Recommended Posts

Thanks Rawja, your too kind !

I'll get the hang of it one of these fine days - persistence pays off.

It can't be all that difficult, but it sure is frustrating!

Thanks Steve - wish I could take credit for it, but it was done by a friend with a digital SLR, and a little bit of Photoshop !

I have a thumbnail to use for an avatar, but it just didn't look right when I posted it.

Maybe Rawja knows the answer to that one too ?

OK, I think I may finally have figurred out how to do this(post a picture).... Here's my 64 which I purchased from the third owner in October of 2006. It has 73,000 miles on it and still has it's original 63 Washington State license plates. The second owner who had the car from 1968 until 2006 was an early member of ROA. A few copies of the Riview from the mid 80's were in the trunk along with the manuals, protect-o-plate, various brochures, bill of sale, etc.. The car appears to be an early production 64 as it has the 63 wire wheel covers and leather upholstery which was not offered in 64. Options include wood steering wheel, tilt, power driver's seat, power windows and vent windows, AM/FM radio, cruise control, rear defroster and 4-note horn. I'd like to refresh the front-end components and have the carb rebuilt and by this time the original paint is getting kind of thin but I sure like it and plan to keep it for a long time to come.

Hey, toomuch....

Go back and edit your post and eliminate the ?3071 and I think you should have your picture pop up. Anything after the jpg should be edited out. Leave the [/image].

Hey Vito... the more the merrier!

What a great representation of body styles of the Riviera! This is great! I've never had a thread give so many ideas for my 65'.

Are there any 1970 Riv's out there?

MY '66 Riviera GS with 2-4's in original Riviera Red (repainted 1984) as part of a Buick Dealer Showroom Display here in WV. I have owned the car since 1988 (almost 19 years now) after purchasing the one owner car.

That black '72 is one of the best mildly customized Boattails I've seen. Very Tasteful

I like the look of the unpainted, chromed road wheels.

I,too, like the last riviera model; and this one looks sweet.

Is that air-intake by the rear wheel functional? Did it come from the factory that way?
