63 Riviera " like riding on magic cloud"

Recommended Posts

Took my buddy and his son for a spin in my 'new to me '63. His 12 yr old son said 

"Dad, this is so cool! It's like riding on a magic cloud!"  Lol!

The smooth ride in the early Rivieras is truly amazing..... At highway speeds you have the sensation that you are flying

an airplane and the wheels aren't touching the ground. This is  my favorite feature on these cars, along with the power steering

you can operate effortlessly with one pinkie finger.

Sir, had the ride been in the late sixties it could have been a “ Magic Carpet Ride”. Like flying an airplane with Steppenwolf at the helm.

ive got a 63 and LOVE the boulevard ride.

Turb,

 

We know that you're a Melophile but I'm wondering if you've ever heard "Two tons of Steel" by Buddard - a Swedish rock band.  This cut is from their album "Wish you were beer."

If you listen closely, you'll pick up on why this should be the song that you have playing in your RIviera while your driving it.

Ed, I will check out the “side” ( slang for the “side” of a 45 RPM record) when my hearing gets close to normal. Bronchitis and sinusitis has my hearing blocked. Thank you for your consideration and the “ clip”.

Listen for specifics that tell you the song is about a 1963 Riviera.
