  1. Did anyone of our ROA members get lucky and buy one of the BJ Riviera's ? If so, give us an update . Love to hear the stories . KReed ROA 14549
  2. Hi Greg - thanks for the offer but this is not worth wasting your time . KReed ROA 14549
  3. Burgundy Mist 65 GS. Sold for $60K ! + buyers premium . Somebody is real happy and someone is sad losing $61 K in the 4 years since purchase .This trio sets a more realistic bar for these cars IMO . Lots of fun ! Ready for the snow to melt and get driving again . KReed ROA 14549
  4. White GS just sold for $50K +buyers premium - reality is setting in on these cars which I am glad to see KReed ROA 14549
  5. Hi Tom - you are right about the 65 GS being the "cheapest " car on the auction block at Gooding that day - that's the reason I went but.... The big dollars were in the room and the guy that bought it was NOT going to be outbid as he never took his paddle down! It went up in $5,000 increments and literally was sold in less than a minute . I took my $200 bidding paddle home as a souvenir 😎. Today's auction will , I believe, give us a little better idea of the market ( although clearly there will be plenty of big bucks in the room today too) . We'll see . KReed ROA 14549
  6. This will be interesting tomorrow ! The burgundy mist GS is the same car that sold at Gooding in 2015 for $110 K + $11 buyers premium = $121 K and was discussed thoroughly on this Forum at the time . I bought a $200 paddle to bid on it and never got my paddle off my lap as two guys in front of me raised their paddles and never put them down until it hit $110 K . Check out the pics from then (which I saved ) and now. First two are from 2019 BJ and second three are Gooding 2015 . Different battery but rest looks identical to me .This will test the market .

  8. I contacted him last night - no response as yet . Told him I wanted to look at the car immediately . No one in their right mind would be a car like this up with no reserve on EBay . KReed ROA 14549
  9. https://www.ebay.com/itm/1965-Buick-Riviera/123594564185?hash=item1cc6cf6259:g:m-oAAOSwFAtcPOBZ&vxp=mtr Located in the “United States” and no reserve . Sent message asking where it was as I wanted to look at it immediately -no response yet but we will see KReeD ROA 14549
  10. Not a car but found a use for a couple of nice wheels I have had laying around so decided to do something with them. Friend of mine welded it together for me yesterday and it found a spot in my shop . The top is a 10X 24 and the crank is out of a GM 454 and the bottom is a standard road wheel for early Rivs . Weight 185 lbs ( my back is still hurting from lifting it into my truck ! Definitely not going anywhere easily . KReed ROA 14549
  11. Hi Paul- no cornering lights. Dual quad intake is sold . The dual quad air cleaner is in poor shape in that one of the snorkels had a hole in it and someone tried to repair it and did a poor job . The lid is rusted out in the center hole . Bottom line it need lots of work to be presentable and then would need replating . I’ll take $75 for it +shipping costs. If you are interested , I will take pics tomorrow and send to you . Thanks Ken
  12. I ordered a set of these "beauty rims" and put them today one of my " beater 66" which had a little rust in the rims of the road wheel . Fit almost perfectly and completely covered the mild rust . I like them on this particular car but the purists will undoubtedly object . To each his own KReed ROA 14549
  13. Also just pulled out an original 65 Riviera gas tank if anyone is interested . KReed ROA 14549
  14. I think you right about that - personally I just liked the contrast . Maybe change it another date when the mood strikes me . KReed ROA 14549
