  1. Was very fun to read, thanks for sharing! 🙂
  2. Checkout the official FB-Profile of ROA: https://www.facebook.com/groups/BuickRivieraOwners/ ...and search for David Jackson (Administrator of the FB profile): https://www.facebook.com/groups/119154231467114/user/100000383404883 He is the man for such requests. Good Luck!
  3. I thought Opel is the European Buick... I'm I wrong? Looks like an Opel Manta (GT/E)... I guess from 1980. They started to build the Manta (B) in 1975 wich became very popular in Germany (mostly with a Foxtail fixed on the antenna). A lot of jokes came up about its owners who had a pretty bad reputation 'cos of their tasteless tunings. But that one - and the girl also 😉 - looks nice!
  4. In this particular case, I definitely agree!!! Damn sexy "Marilyne" on that Buick! 😜👍
  5. Sorry the lapsus... clear, George Barris, not Ed Barris... ðŸĪŠðŸ˜† And many thx for the info... ðŸĪĐ👍 Is this the article you meant? https://www.ckdeluxe.com/barris-villa-riviera/ Very interesting, thanks Ed!
  6. Oh yes Ed, I remember well! There was a very cool article in Riview Vol. 33 No. 1 from January/February of Ed Barris Custom Villa Riviera and that Jeffrey and Ginnie Goldstein now owns the car and brought it to the original Barris Design. I loved the article with a lot of pictures and some amazing stories about that Riviera! ðŸĪĐ👍 (Beside, it was the Riview issue in that I have been mentioned the first time in "Odds & Ends" for the future series of my own restauration, why I can well remember Jeffrey's great article! 😇)
  7. I don't know if we had that one allready? Found it in a German article in the newspaper "Spiegel": https://www.spiegel.de/auto/fahrkultur/buick-centurion-concept-ein-auto-wie-ein-ufo-a-5b02b1be-eda9-46df-b32b-b3b44246c472
  8. Looks great!!! Will order a blue one for myself! Thanks for the share 😁👍
  9. Thank you Ben! Hard to say who looks better! ðŸĨ°ðŸ˜‡ ðŸĪĢ
  10. My girl, my ride! Took them out for having an ice cream in Murten (Switzerland).
  11. This is very inspiring, thanks for this info Ed! (Here the direct link to the video) If I knew that before, I would have choose to do this conversion! Not sure if the conversion would be DAB compatible (Digital Audio Broadcasting). Here in Switzerland AM & FM will be replaced with DAB+ definitely in one or two years. Thats why I decided to install such a DAB+ radio in the glove compartment with all wires going under the carpet to the rear speakers (to the one between the seats and two more on each side of the armrests. Today I would choose to convert my original
  12. ðŸĨģ👍 Congrats David - glad to hear that you become a grandpa! This is something I'm waiting for but hummm, I guess this will need few years longer with my sons 😁 Yes right, it looks like these horn bars cost more and more. Can't recall how much I paid few years ago, but I'm sure it wasn't 350 box. Got them from Rick, they look absolutely great, the wohle steering wheel is now a pure jewel! ðŸĨ°ðŸĪ— As I said to Alex, with this link I'm very motivated to repair my old steering wheel! Good luck with you projects!
  13. A very interesting link, thank you Alex! I have a second GS steering wheel cracked like the one of David, but never fixed it. The method shown on this website is very inspiring me to finally fix it correctly and sell it again. 😉
