  6. Thanks for all the responses. I guess I might want to clarify my original post. A few years ago I saw a last gen Riv on a dealer's lot but didn't pull the trigger. I don't even remember what year it was but I started looking on the internet and found a low mileage '85 close by in KC, Mo. I had it for about 2 years and put less than 2K miles on it. I never even had the oil changed. For some unknown reason and I wish I hadn't done it, I sold it a few months ago. So now I'm wanting to get another Riv and thought the most modern version would be more to my liking. Of course it would be nice to get a Silver Arrow but then I would probably not end up driving it. I guess a nice, reasonable '98 or '99 or Silver Arrow (dream on) from the central US that I could drive and still be a Riviera would be what I'm after. The King is gone but he's not forgotten B Dub
  7. There doesn't seem to be much discussion about '95-99 Rivs on here but what does one look for when buying one? Are the latter years more desireable due to lower production? Supercharged vs. non? I have driven a few in the 110-150K range and it seems they need front end work/?struts. Thanks for any responses. It's better to burn out than it is to fade away B Dub Riv-less for now

  9. I bought a universal replacement pad from CARS, Inc in New Jersey for my '85. It's marbley black/gray on the engine side and a black skin on the hood side. I cut it to match the old one and punched the nine holes in it for the plastic retainer buttons. I didn't use any glue on it at first because I wanted to be able to shift it around to get the buttons back in the mounting holes. After a few you are pretty well committed. Anyway, after getting it installed it sags along the fender sides because there is no place provided to put buttons there and didn't have any in the first place. So first I tried Permatex adhesive spray and wedged a cardboard box against the insulation and let it sit for an hour or so. Sagged. Then I tried emblem adhesive with the same result. Then I tried Gorilla Super Glue and shut the hood down on some blankets to provide pressure against the insulation and let it sit overnight. Still sags. Does anybody out there have experience with this or any suggestions but I don't want to remove it at this point. Rust Never Sleeps B Dub
  10. No, I believe it's "where no man has gone before."
  11. The climate control has been working since the contacts were cleaned and the fuel gauge straightened itself out as the amount in the tank dropped some and I started getting the numerical readings again, although they fluctuate quite a bit with the position of the car. Bruce W.
  12. When I first got my '85 the antenna was stuck in the up position as the filament inside was broken. I got one from a vendor in Texas but the mechanics that tried to install it said it was non-functional. They said they had to take the hood off to install it. They got a different one from another source which still works well but I don't know who it was and it was a lot more expensive. I later found out from a stereo installer that the hood removal would not have been necessary as he has a different way to install it. Also as I remember I later found out the antenna was still available from GM dealers. Have you tried that route? Bruce W.
