  1. I'm really glad to hear that the plates are working out for others. To answer Ed's question above, the plates are "Laser Etched AlumaMark".
  2. Glad to hear they turned out well for you. I was hoping others would be pleased with the results. Care to post a pic of your plate on your console?
  3. At the request of several other Riviera owners, I worked with the trophy shop owner to get a more precise reproduction plate (dimensions more accurate with the original). Here's the final result: If anyone else is interested in a similar plaque, here's what you do: 1) Get permission to use the Riviera logo for your private use. I contacted the GM Heritage Center and they have no problem with people using copyrighted GM material for personal use. You can email Peggy Kelly at margaret.p.kelly@gm.com and request a "No Objection to Use" form. Be sure to include details of what you intend to d
  4. I promised an update and I finally have one. There's nothing like the threat of legal action to kill a thread. I emailed GM Heritage Center (gmhc@gm.com) letting them know what I intended to do and requested permission to use the Riviera logo. My request was forwarded to GM Global Brand Licensing who sent me a very nice reply granting permission for personal use (they were also kind enough to send along several Riviera logos as well as some stock photos of the 1963 Riviera to help in my project). Naturally, GM could not grant blanket permission to use the Riviera logo but other enthusiasts
  5. Thanks to all who chimed in on the Riviera script. I ended up "borrowing" the logo from the ROA (of which I am a member) and stripped away everything but the "Riviera" script. From my perspective, that matched almost exactly what I was looking for. We couldn't find an exact match for the owner's name but picked a fancy cursive font that will hopefully look good. I hope to pick up my plate tomorrow or Wednesday and will post pics of the original and the reproduction side by side. I'm sure you'll be able to spot the differences between the two but I hope my reproduction will add a nice pers
  6. Anyone know where I can find an electronic image of the "Riviera" script? I found a local trophy shop that can reproduce the "Built Expressly for..." plaque I found in our 63 Riv. I'm working on this car with my son and I'd like to reproduce this plaque with his name engraved. For best results, the trophy shop owner would like to have a high resolution image of the "Riviera" script.
