  1. When we bought our 1995 Honda Civic, air conditioning for it was still a dealer-installed option—none came from the factory with AC. There's such a difference in the arrival years of standard air conditioning, depending on the market position of the car and other factors. Some not-so-random examples: Lincoln Continental Mark III—1971 Cadillac Eldorado—1975 Buick Riviera—1978 Chevrolet Corvette—1980

  3. Sounds like a substantial loss to this portion of the automotive hobby. Thanks for the context, Ed and Jim.
  4. Thank you—that's what I thought. Perhaps safer to say it was their first post-war two-seater.
  5. (because I figure someone on this forum will know) Was the Allanté truly Cadillac's first production two-seater? I'm fairly confident that it's the first one in the last seventy years, but I'm weak(er) on automotive history prior to around 1950. Thanks in advance.

  9. … this one for the sixth-generation (1979 to 1985) Rivieras. Colors not even close to fully calibrated. Click the image to expand somewhat. Some notes: 1) Thin black horizontal lines indicate that the color formulation is the same, even when the name isn't the same. They also indicate when the exact same formulation came back after a few years and when a color carried over from the previous generation. 2) The number is the actual Buick paint number, while an asterisk indicates metallic. Even if the paint number didn't change, the formulation som
  10. There were just a four Rivieras at Mecum's Indy auction and all but one sold. All descriptions as claimed by Mecum and/or the seller. 1970 Glacier White Riviera GS coupe with a white vinyl top, a white interior (not pictured), and 31,000 miles ($14,000 hammer price): https://www.mecum.com/lots/SC0520-428788/1970-buick-riviera-gs/ 1970 gold Riviera GS coupe with a black vinyl top and a green vinyl bench seat (no sale at $25,000—designated as The Bid Goes On … in case someone comes forward
