funny you should mention the Dodge Magnum. I recently saw a 2005 R/T all wheel drive for sale up at Lake Tahoe. It was described as being in mint condition and with low miles. Photos looked good so I decided to go see it with the thought it would replace the Riviera.
Upon seeing it I didn't think it was mint but it was pretty nice. Test drove the car and while it had fun acceleration, it was not near the road car the Riviera is. There was quite a bit of road noise and the steering felt heavy, no doubt the awd contributed to that. I made an offer on it anyway but the seller wouldn't come down enough.

The ebay listing ended, seller stated car sold. When I last checked this morning I think the high bid was $7600.

I bid 5K on it thumbsup 

John must have got an offer for what he wanted and deleted the auction?!? scratch 

Did anyone else notice how low optioned it is/was? Had the chrome wheels but no sunroof or SE Prestige Package dunno

Very nice Riv BUT ...  wtf

I concentrated so much on the low mileage and the fact I was ready to buy it when I saw the original ad on craiglist I didn't even noticed it hadn't had a sunroof. Let's call it a relief because I am looking for a Riv with a sunroof  wink 

SE Prestige Package? I found it had 'Cornering lights/curb illumination; Automatic operation rear view mirror' That's all? since when was it offered?

The Prestige Package (SE) was also offered back on the 7th generation Riviera's (86-93).  Earlier generations had option packages but just not called specifically "Prestige".

Thanks for clarifying Larry read 

From Dave's reply it kind of sounded like it was "only" offered on the 7th generation Riviera. I know it was offered on the 7th gen for the last couple/few years, BUT, it was also offered for the 8th generation from start to finish. thumbsup

I did get the $9500 that I was asking and that's why I ended the auction. But I have been bitten by the Riviera bug and I bought a 95 non-SC Riv today with 111K! What nice cars they are!

An ebay auction can be ended by seller at any time if it hasn't met reserve.

So this is the other Riviera I found. A very nice 1995 with 111,000 miles.  Very clean car with no rust.  I'm excited!

I listed it on eBay, what do you folks think this one might be worth? Clearly a lot less than the other one.

Maybe around 4k? I do like the black interior though. I'd still love to track a whole interior down and replace mine someday.
