As I head back to Philadelphia to catch a plane, I would like to say thanks to everyone who took the time to chat with me. It was a great day. Your cars are truly wonderful.

I've prepared a Google Photo album with several pictures.

If you have issues seeing the pictures let me know and I will post them here. They are rather big.

 

 

Great, artistic shots.  Thanks

What a great experience attending this year's meet!

 

We enjoyed meeting so many of the other members and seeing SO many Rivieras in one place.

 

The venue was perfect and the local people are so friendly. 

 

We spotted the battlefield scene used in this year's meet art and decided to get a picture of The Aqua Zephyr actually sitting in that exact spot. 

The top picture is the meet art, the second picture is of he AZ in that spot.

The tree in the background is now bigger than when the top background photo was originally taken.

Sorting through the 1,049 images. Here's one that's not so bad, from Wednesday evening's road tour.

I believe this was not far from the Round Barn. (?)

Yes. Toward the end of the tour.

I apologize for not getting to meet everyone from the forum that attended, I did get to speak to a few, but not everyone. I wasn’t “working” as much at this year’s meet, but I still keep pretty busy during the week setting up what I do. I might have been on the forum some before now, BUT I had extreme connectivity issues at the hotel, obviously it must have just been my room going by Mike’s posts. The week sure does go by very quick!

Along with everyone else, Thank you Mike for posting all the pictures and videos. They look great, AND do give those not able to attend a GREAT sense of the happenings. I have some, nowhere near what you have posted, so I won’t add more to this thread. Thanks again for keeping the forum members up to date.

 

AND, Congratulations on your award too Mike! Mike’s Aqua Zephyr was a class winner in the 1966-1970 class this year, and well deserved! I will say that was a very difficult class to vote in, several of the eight Rivieras in the class were very nice! The only car that received more votes than Mike’s was one that had won Best of Show at a previous ROA meet several years ago, obviously still a very nice Riviera.

 

Pictures of the cars and activities will also be posted on the ROA photo gallery. It may take a while for the smoke to settle, but there should be a fair assortment of different pictures posted there eventually.

As John and Mike said, GREAT shots of the cars, they look like art for sure!

 

Thank you for sharing.

My final count was 91 Rivieras on the show field, with a few others either on the periphery or that left before Friday.

 

You are very close on your count.

 

I am not absolutely certain of the final “official” count, but there were 93 Rivs parked on the show field, including the five winners circle cars. And yes, a few others parked in the lot that never came to the show field? A few less than pre-registered, but that does happen when unexpected car trouble arises.

It was a shame we could not get rid of that Toyota truck that was parked in our part of the parking lot!!! I had noticed it there the days before, they must have parked it there and went out of town or something?

 

I did notice also, it was gone by the time the banquet started. Too bad they couldn't have moved it a few hours sooner?!?!?

Randall, I personally would like to thank you, the other members of the board and the numerous volunteers who made the meet a success.

 

I now understand why the annual meets are so highly anticipated. Everything went smoothly and we thoroughly enjoyed our time together with everyone who attended.

2019 ROA International Meet

 

64 of the best/most representative photos I took. Apologies if I misidentified any Rivieras—I'm still learning.

Ditto -- a terrific event and the weather (though really HOT) remained dry!  It was so nice to see so many great Rivieras assembled in the same place at once.  Better yet was the opportunity to talk with JZRiv, Rivdrivn, NC1968Riviera, BuickRacer, Turbinator and a few others in the real world for a change.  This was my first ROA meet, but it will definitely NOT be my last!  ;)

Oh, and before I forget just let me say that one of my goals for the show was to come home with a genuine GM '67 shop manual for my Riviera.  Mission Accomplished - I scored a very nice, NOS shop manual from one of the vendors at the show for what I believe to be a very fair price.  Aside from a few minor scuffs on the cover, it looks like new.  While I was at it I picked-up a new manual side-view mirror to replace the one currently on the car.  The old one seems to have a distorted convex mirror glass in it that drives me nuts!  The new one is a plain mirror which has no noticeable distortion.  I moved my old driver's side mirror over to the passenger door (which was without a mirror) where the convex mirror will at least do some good (even with the distortion)...

Anyone happen to know the price that was asked for the blue 68 or 69 there was a phot of on the door into the vendor area? I thought I snapped a photo, but didn’t save apparently. I think it was a low mileage car. 

 

Thanks

My Thanks to all who attended our 2019 Meet in Gettysburg this past week.  Our great members always make it a memorable event. In addition to the many attendees, we had 98 outstanding Rivieras in a picturesque  setting, under clear skies. A list of winners will be posted on our website  www.rivowners.org.

 

Next year we will be in Kalamazoo, MI from June 22-25th. Details will follow.
