  1. Welp, I thought (arrogantly) that I had the nicest 77 Riviera on the planet. However this one in western New York has me beat... I know this year isnt as collectible as the earlier generations but I still love mine. (pictured below). https://www.carsforsale.com/vehicle/details/40742925
  2. Nevermind I bought a heater control unit off ebay that has the correct knobs. I have extra one too if someone wants to buy it. Thanks.
  3. Hi everyone, I'm looking for the heater control knob for my 1977 Riviera. It's just like the one in the photos I've attached. Does anyone have one kicking around? Thanks in advance! Andrew
  4. I'm definitely more of a stock guy and this is a little wild for me but I do think this car is tasteful done. I mean you kinda have to accept that some things are going to be "gaudy" when you're dabbling in the chopped, low-rider category. In fact, if you pick up "Lowrider" magazine and take a peek at that world, I'll think you'll find that this car is actually very subtle (!) and well balanced. And having Rivs represented in every category is great for the brand! Ps. Everyone seems to hate the wheels... I think they are actually kinda mean! And I love the thick white wall.
  5. Haha, nice! I have a factory 8-track player but it buzzes a lot...
  6. There is something to be said for just driving the car as it was intended out of the factory. I'm always mulling over putting in a big stereo because I love cruising and listening to tunes. But just listening to the radio and having a mint condition 70s car is often enough! Congrats!
  7. My short answer to your question is that it does bother me not to get to drive my car often. I can't drive mine for reasons that are different than most here i'd wager. I live in NYC and its just kind of impractical to take it out for a spin once a week because its a bit of a walk to the garage i park it at. What's worse is that I'm constantly having to deal with small issues do to the lack of driving it and not having a place to work on it. So this occasionally means repairs and towing which again in NYC is expensive and a pain in the ass. To make matters worse its very expensive to park as y

  11. THAT'S AWESOME!! So cool. I love the photo and the diorama is cool too!
  12. Welp I fixed the cigarette lighter. It turns out that the wiring clip slipped off the prong on the back of the lighter cylinder. I'm just going to buy a device similar to the one RodneyBeauchamp shows in his first post (on the left) and call it a day. I didn't know they have ones that are so neat and tidy now!
  13. When you "redo the lighters" are you just rewiring or are you replacing the whole assembly?
  14. Hmm, interesting. Didn't know such a product existed. Thanks. But out of curiosity, why don't you recommend not using the existing socket (provided that I repair the wiring)?
