Those 95 Rivieras were way ahead in looks and technology. I like the color too. Classy newer collector car.You have also done some smart upgrades

Good looking Riv... I have owned a couple of the early versions of it... You always look back when you see something like this and kick yourself in the butt for getting rid of them...

In every way this is the finest example of a 1990's Riviera which I have seen. I've viewed many at various car shows.

exmerc on Dec 5, 2011 said:

I have to admit that is a sharp car. Late models don't normally do anything for me but I would buy that. Nicely done.

ghpcnm on Dec 5, 2011 said:

Thanks...I understand what you mean about the newer cars, but there's just something about the Riv and Reatta that says "future collectible" to me. Thanks again for the compliment.

Louiestoy on Dec 23, 2011 said:

I love your Riviera, Dave! A true beauty. Back in the late '80's, I owned an '86 Buick Park Avenue (2 door)) I believe that was the last year of the 2 door. I loved that 3.8! (not supercharged, of course)

ghpcnm on Dec 29, 2011 said:

Thanks, Louie. I appreciate your compliment. Take care of that Mustang of yours.

C5CHICK on Jan 3, 2012 said:

Thanks for the comment Ive been building the vette for a few years now drove it stock till I hit 160,000 miles then I added the ProCharger. Thats one sweet Riviera you have there yourself. I use to race at Maple Grove back in Pa and seen a few of them there from time to time.

olddude39 on Dec 6, 2012 said:

I have had several Rivieras, a '63 , '64 , 2 '73's , '79, '84 , and 2 '85's. My all time favorite is the '67 , & '68 never had one. I started to observe more when they went back to larger car. When they downsized them , as far I was concerned it wasn't the real Riviera . I am so ate up with Old Cars. Real Nice Rivey.

ghpcnm on Dec 6, 2012 said:

Thank you, sir. I am in the process of looking for a Boat Tail Riv. I found a really nice AZ car but it's not the GS model. Kinda hedging a bit to see if I can find exactly what I want. I love Buicks. Have you seen my little Reatta?

[Reply to this comment]

olddude39 on Dec 6, 2012 said:

Not a problem. Forgot to add, I also had a '74 Rivey. It was Red, with White Vinyl Top. My wife loved it.

Riv is still looking top shelf, Dave! Where's those pics of your wife's Sahara that you mentioned a while back, hmmmmm?

Nice Ride...like the silver accents in the interior. Question for you....Did those Lacrosse wheels bolt up directly, or did you change the rotors or used adapters? I wanna do the same but use another newer Buick wheel???

[Reply to this comment]

ghpcnm on Jul 28, 2014 said:

I had them redrilled. The bolt pattern will not fit without re-drilling or an adapter. I prefer to NOT use adapters. Thanks for the compliment and good luck.

poppa on Apr 10, 2015 said:

Very nice car! I loved mine but my Ex-wife has it! I have a 95 Impala SS as a daily driver and I love it. Still keeping an eye out for a nice Rivera. I think they are sportier than the Impala SS The 90's were good years for GM

azmusclecar on May 16, 2015 said:

This is my first look at one of these.......I mean I've seen them but never really noticed one up close. There's a whole lot to like about them. Great smooth body lines, the stance is perfect. I think the best way to learn more about one is to drive it. So, where are the keys and I'd just like a short test drive across a few states..........the lower 48 will do. That interior looks like one I could live in. Better seat than my recliner. Great color too...

[Reply to this comment]

ghpcnm on May 16, 2015 said:

Thank you very much. It goes without saying, the Riv is an absolute pleasure to drive. I actually bought this car in Tucson from the original 89 year old owner. It has been garaged and absolutely babied all its life. Come on down to Florida and you can take her for a spin.

Yeah, I sold the Mustang. It was a great car,but it was time for me to move on. I like having something different to take to the shows. I still have the Riv. I suppose I will never get rid of that one.

~ Dave the secret to get the link to highlight like mine is in the comment before yours, is to put this symbol in the front of the link like so, ' ' and than put this symbol at the back of the link like so ' ' but do not use the quote symbol tho, otherwise it will not work for you ~ To demonstrate this action I will use your link in this experiment ~ Note the '' and the will not show up in the highlighted link ~ http://www.americantorque.com/page/0/3658/

~ Dave your link did highlight but my explanation got all messed up lol ~ sorry but at one time this site had words to remove my comment but now it is no longer there ~ Looks like we are both stuck with the comment that I put on lol ~ I guess if you want to remove my comment you will have to take it up with the administration ~ HaHa I can feel my face turning red ~ Not so funny tho ~
