  1. SOLD !!! Going to New York, to a responsible, dedicated owner. Thanks to all who expressed interest!
  2. Sold the house, moving south, shipping costs are out of site! Also my arthritis acting up. So it is time to let someone else enjoy the Riv. Riv is in storage until May, but fully accessible. Here is a link with info and pix, email me for $$ and particulars. Riviera I welcome all comments and critics!
  3. A friend has a 50 DeSoto Coupe that he needs to ship from Chicagoland to San Diego in October. Most of the Posts on the AACA site are dated. Anyone have suggestions??
  4. Not sure if I'd go back again, I took my 69 Skylark in 1995. It was crowded then and it is probably more so today! Mount a electric fan and use water-wetter because you will crawl from 8 Mile to 13 Mile! There were many cars along the side of the road with steam billowing out of the up-raised hoods. But it is surely a great time!!
  5. I cannot find the Riv View that had the articles about the body fillers. Can someone just post the recommended company that Ed suggested??
  6. The power seat transmission plastic is disintegrating on my 85. I have 'MacGyvered' it, and it works, but not very well. Yards around here are a no go for and E bodies of those years. Anyone know of any other years that may fit??
  7. I have the factory manual. Tell me what you need and I will scan it for you.
  8. I am anticipating selling my 85 Convertible this spring, my health is prohibiting me from enjoying it this year. But, I need some background for my write-up. Can someone run a CARFAX for me? Thanks!! Larry ixlar8@comcast.net
  9. I have a 'almost new'1984-1985 Buick Riviera Catalytic Converter Walker # 15540. I mounted it, listened to it, then replaced it with a thru pipe. So technically, it is used, but not really. I paid $150 so I'll ask $50 plus shipping. email me- ixlar8@gmail.com.

  11. I had carb problems for years and had to replace the valve all the time! Until last year when Illinois modified the epa law, you could apply for an exemption from testing. A letter from my insurance company confirming limited miles per year and fill out a form and you get exempt. However, now Illinois has negated any emission testing for auto older than 15 years- IF they have passed their last emissions testing. Illinois figures that cars that old are not a major percentage of the emissions population, and it cost too much to process high emissions paperwork for older cars- so they exempt them.
  12. Can you tell me the name or type or where you bought this device?? Thanks
  13. I have an 85 drop top. I would like to add a key fob power lock and truck auto unit. I have examined several in the web, and are wondering if anyone has made this conversion. I am trying to add the convenience as I have on my late models instead of using the key in the lock. I just want to press a button to pop the truck or doors! Thanks! Larry ixlar8@comcast.net
  14. Okay, I found the box. Is this something I can pull and replace from a dealer? If it is not working, what are my options??? Thanks Larry
