  1. Not shooting the messenger Tom, just disappointed as I was certain they were the correct '65 wheels. The seller of the first lens listed above is my restorer and he sent me one for my car ☺️. The second one listed (although cheaper is not correct as the face of the lens is not "ribbed." Anyone who needs one of these console lenses should bite the bullet and buy the one from AZ...
  2. I’m not Tom, but yes rubber valve stems. Not certain that mine are “correct,” but I did go through BCA 400 point judging last year and did not receive any deductions for the wrong size. Honestly, worrying about that one may be taking it a little too far :)
  3. Here is a photo of the lens cover in question... I need one of these too for my '70! This photo was taken at the ROA meet in Lexington and it's from the interior of Pat Curran's unrestored '69. Sadly, the car has left the U.S. and is now overseas. If someone were willing to let us borrow an original, they could be reproduced. I would love love to find one also to complete my car...
  4. Thanks to all for the nice comments about my midnight blue '65 GS and coral mist '64. In addition to these cars, Cheryl and I also have a very nice triple black '70 that will be at the meet in Overland Park. Hope to see you all there!
  5. Helpful advice here, but remember guys 1964 Riviera Wildcat indicated that she "knows next to nothing about cars." An explanation of what a sending unit is/does would be helpful for someone with very little experience. I'll leave that one up to RivNut...
  6. This one? http://www.barrett-jackson.com/Archive/Event/Item/1967-BUICK-RIVIERA-CUSTOM-2-DOOR-COUPE-182555
  7. My first reaction was it looks like an early Barracuda with a '65 Riv front end...
  8. Found this one in a Craigslist ad this summer from a guy trying to sell his LeSabre...
  9. Sold for $35,000 at Mecum's Houston auction in 2013... https://www.mecum.com/lot-detail.cfm?lot_id=HA0413-155792
  10. Looks like those photos are from 2013 . I'm sure Harold will submit some photos and a brief write-up of the event to Ray for inclusion on the web site...
  11. Glad to have you in the Association Mr. Earl!
  12. A '73 with the stage 1 engine would also have a "Stage 1" emblem in the grille...
  13. Agreed, appears to have been a good deal. Congratulations Ed.
  14. Not mine, but looks like one to check out. Nice color combo, low miles, cheap price... http://milwaukee.craigslist.org/cto/4504875285.html Appears it would be a good car for someone!
  15. Awesome Tony! Thank you for posting. Wish I could have joined you!
  16. I did not know Leonard, but as a Riviera guru and a Patriot he is truly someone to be admired. Rest in peace sir...
  17. John: Try John in PA. Indicated that he still has this set for sale... http://forums.aaca.org/f117/1964-wildcat-chrome-wheels-359308.html
  18. In a word... NO! I can appreciate customs and the talent required to create them, but that thing is fugly.
