It was over 70° today!  (for reference its usually in the 30s this time of year)

 

Couldn't pass that up, so unwrapped the Riv and let the girlfriend take some beauty shots.  She's a way better photographer than I am.

Hazdaz, are you running the halos with your parking lights are on a separate switch?  I found some good LEDs and put them in our parking lamps, and will do halos with a whole new wiring harness soon.  I think I want them on the parking light switch, but not sure.

Totally separate switch right now. 

 

Come spring time I want to wire it in with a relay so they turn off when the ignition is off so I don't forget them on which is something I've done too many times.

Chop 70

 My mind immediately went back to 1970 on "The Strip" outside the Navy base gate in Charleston, SC. Some things just stick with you.

The things that impress the most stay with you. The zRiviera 63-65, 64 Impala SS, and stock 1950 Chevy DeLuxe with 6 cylinders are favorites.

Come on Riviera guys. This car is actually a 1970 Mercury Marauder.

Ditto. On my bucket list. ‘70 is the best year.

 

Try finding one with a floor console in good shape. Seems more rare than the Rivs.

And a ‘64 Impala was my first car. Red on black.

Not mine but I'm curious as to how many of you have seen a 1971/1972 boat tail with this vinyl roof extension.  It was sold by Acme Auto Headling, San Diego.  It came as a kit with the pre-cut matching vinyl and all of the hardware for mounting.

I don’t mean to hijack the “Post some pics of your Rivieras” thread, but I thought I would add a bit of information to your post.

 

Sorry but I have never seen one, just a few pictures of it.

 

It was designed by George Barris, and promoted by the Buick Motor Division of General Motors. See below …

I have a copy of the order form and installation instructions also. They were ordered through the Acme Landau Top Company in Long Beach, CA, the cost was $14.95 for the complete kit, and the Suggested List price was $29.95, in 1972.

In the late 80's I was drop shipping vinyl tops and headliners from Acme under the auspices of E&L Enterpruses (Ed and Linda) and this boattail accessory was part of their catalog/order form.  At that time, I did not know that it was a Barris design nor did I know that Buick was promoting it.  Thanks for the added info.

Congratulations on the new purchase. Glad to see you are also a ROA member. Might we be seeing you and your '65 in Kalamazoo, MI in June?

Hi and welcome to the forum. Congratulations on the purchase. Looks clean and mean. You are all set.....65 Riv, ROA member, and Forum member. We don't care if a question has been asked before so never hesitate to ask. Sometimes the search function helps you find info on a certain topic and other times it can be challenging and difficult. Also a valuable tool for new members is to utilize the searchable index on the ROA members only section of website which includes the content of 35 years of the Riview.

Smclassiccars.com. Says car is located in Mississippi but no price, so beware.

Hey Rivnut, according to our new forum rules, these kind of non-stock aftermarket add-ons aren't allowed to be posted on this site any longer. 

 

You are in violation of those rules, my friend. 

 

 

 

 

(of course I personally don't care, but it just goes to show how ridiculous those rules are)

Hey, I didn't start it, talk to the guy who first posted it. 🤔

 

 

I believe the comments about the RULES are more harmful than the rules themselves seem to be!

 

Are you saying I started the post about the “boattail aftermarket add-on” because I added information to YOUR original post that was asking about it?!?!?

Everyone should just calm down—all of the kerfuffle on the main site has little to do with us. Trust me, I've been following the kerfuffle …

 

… all Rivieras of any type all the time in this forum!
