Post some pics of your Rivieras!!!!!!!!!!


Recommended Posts

It took me 4 1/2 years start to finish and I am ready to enjoy my 64!  Kept everything original except springs, tires, and paint (needed a dark color to show off the brightwork) Taking it to Good Guys in Des Moines.  Big thanks to the ROA for technical help along the way.

I promise these will be my last pictures of The Aqua Zephyr at Gettysburg but I couldn't resist sharing a composite image I made for Instagram's 'Tail Light Tuesday'. (Yes, today is Thursday 😁

I needed to get away from my tablet and get to an actual computer.  

 

Here you go.  Just think of the fun you could have.

Mike,

 

I've found a sister for Aqua Zephyr.  Gotta find a way to attach the link.

There was a turquoise 69 GS at the meet but I didn't get around to talk to the owner. I wanted to get some pictures of the cars together but he left right after the show. Too bad, too. His was almost a mirror image of mine. 😕

It's now on carsforsale.com.  In the ad it says that its powered by a 350 SBC.  But it looks more like a Chevy big block to my eye.

I like those spinner wheel covers!  ;)

Came as part of the Gran Sport option in 1965.  You don't see many because buyers would check the box for rally wheels when ordering and these would stay in the bin in Flint.

A little late I know, but, I thought I should post a picture of my 1 of 454 LX ’65 for the last time, just kind of because.

 

As it was being loaded on the semi for its trip to CA …

Oooooo...  When does it arrive in dealer showrooms?  ;)

Funny. Someone on FB mentioned something similar. They said this image looks like a 'back in the day' advertisement. Personally, this is my favorite rendering of The AZ.

My '65 Gran Sport won "Best Buick" at the Tsawwassen Mills all-make show last weekend.

 

Here's a judge inspecting my car:
