Please note the 63 Red Riviera is very close to the Red Riviera I currently own. It is me in the photo when I had hair and a few pounds lighter.

So Bob.......is this the car that led you to buy your red 63 Riviera?

Seafoam, you already know I’m nuts. The first time I remember seeing a brand new Riviera I was a boy hanging at the hamburger stand in Lomita CA. A boy from our high school came in with a midnight blue Riviera he bought with signing money to play ball for the Braves. In 1963 I said I’m going to get a Riviera just like this one. Fifty years later I got the Riv.

I have a few magazines from the era and it seems to me that Buick never gave a highly optioned car to the people doing the testing.

Actually, Buick gave me a written description of the accessories available. I tested the vehicle as outfitted and filled the blanks with what I thought how the accessories would perform. I suppose that is why I’m so sharp on the AC repair on the 63.

You look to be about 30 in that picture. That must make you about 87 years old. Oh and where are the suspenders. 

And where are your eyeglasses? My suspenders were worn, but under the snazzy sports coat. As far as a mature appearance Ive always appeared older. I’m not 87, but getting close.

Stay Well!

You had a lot more hair than Tom Cahill! And much better looking ! I know you wouldn’t pick that saddle interior  with that color either . Keep up the good work Bob! Glad you’re on the front lines.🤣😂

Ken, a number of us have had some laughs on this GAG. A pal of mine in SaltLake City Utah did the photo shop work.

Thanks for chiming in.
