Just curious, what's everyones age, and what year Riv(s) do you own?

Recommended Posts

I'm interested in figuring out the age demographic of us fellow Riv addicts. List your age, and what cars you own...

Currently I'm 43, and have 2 1965 Riv's. One a base 401 car, the other a 1965 GS. I also own an all original, survivor, mint condition 1987 Buick Grand National with only 16k miles on the clock.

Rob.

I am 53. I have a fairly loaded 63 Riviera, a 55 Chevy Bel Air sport coupe, a 56 Chevy Bel Air Sport Coupe, a 57 Chevy Bel Air Sport Sedan, and a 58 Chevy Apache big window short wide. Only one Buick. Not quite the purist you other guys are. Sold all my Camaros, Chevelles and Impalas, but still have too many projects.

I'm 64, bought the Riviera when I was 30. I liked the idea that Buick had built a small personal car, by my standards, anyway.

The weather is still nice here, not getting snowed like Albany (there is a lot of that going on there) so we are taking the Impala SS over to the next town for lunch. Interesting that the '94 Impala was 14 years old when I bought it, just like the Riviera.

I'm 56 and have a '64 Riv. I remember walking by a neighbors home on the way to school and they had a new silver '63. I fell in love with them on the spot and managed to get mine in 2007. Nice 70 K original with most options except autotronic eye and like most Pacific Northwest cars, no A/C.

I can understand what your saying but I find that hopping on this forum or grabbing the manual is alot more productive and healthier than the bottle, but if I had to I would have to say I take after my pop in choosing Christian Brothers for my liquid refreshment.

I just turned 50. My Riv is a 63...same year as me. When I was a boy, a neighbor had a black 63 that I worshipped. When complete, my 63 will be silver with a black interior.

I have a 1968 Shelby GT-350 that I bought in 1979. Acapulco blue with a tan interior. It is simple and brutal. It was my first car. Still have it.

I have a 1972 442 convertible that is one of the sweetest driving cars I've every owned. It is copper bronze with a white interior. Driving it with the top down is sublime.

My daily driver is an 07 GT Mustang with some slight modifications. It is black on black. It's....very responsive.

I`m 56 , I had a `64 when I was 28. It was the right car at the wrong time, the kids were little and it was a drain on the family budget...sold. I waited until I was 50 and got another `64,this one stays. Back in the `70s I swapped my `67 Camero for a `63 Riv for a night...I didn`t want to give it back ! Been hooked ever since.

Alex,

You didn't mention your shoebox Ford when we talked. I know this is a Riviera forum, but that's "1 Kool Kemp."

Christian Brothers? Here I avoided making a political comment about making a deposit in the bank and buying gas on the same day (republicans do that) and all of a sudden it gets religious!

Ha ha ha ha, Christian Brothers Brandy not Easy Jesus. Hey to each his own on the deposit/buying gas, with gas prices going up the as quick as they are you might need a loan to fill up anything others than a 4 cylinder.
