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

Recommended Posts

64 paint code N= Coral mist this is a 20 yo repaint in urethane I think, has an extra handful of metallic over factory. This picture at least on my screen catches it pretty close to exact. Dry car out of Nevada about to rack up some miles as a daily driver except from around Thanksgiving to the St Patricks Day Parade.

"'71 Buick Riviera..... convertible

The theory is to use '71-'76 GM full-sized convertible windshield and header, side glass, 'scissors' top bows and hydraulic mechanism, and Eldorado hard boot to finish it off. The boattail part of the rear deck gets widened at the passenger compartment. The coupe's roof normally severely tapers, this convertible roof doesn't. The good news is the '71-'76 convertible top and side glass has beautiful lines when viewed from the side, so this Riv should look good top up or top down." (Steve Stanford)

I saw this in the Buick General forum. Very cool period ad photo.

That pic was part of a magazine ad, which I reproduced to make into my car show placard (see below).

This is a Steve Stanford concept drawing. One of hundreds he has drawn over the decades.

The first time I saw this it made me wonder if this car is some shade of blue or is it silver and it won't reproduce when you try to copy it.

Did they ever make (production car) a silver/grey exterior with a red interior?  That color combination is flat out stunning.  Looks incredibly European.

Two of these showed up at the 2018 meet.  It's a common agreement that the 1978 Riviera with the 403 V8, Turbo 400 transmission, rear wheel drive, and that plush interior may be the best riding Riviera ever built.  If you've never ridden in one, you can't make any comparisons.  Many of us have heard this from a lot of guys who've owned a number of different generation Rivieras. Ray Knott reiterated this when he presented the Best in Class award to one of them at the meet.
