Hey guys!! I have a 98 sc rivy its a "signature series"!! It has a diamond white paint with a navy blue soft top with gold emblems and accents!! I have never seen another and cant find one online to save my life so it makes it hard to find those navy blue interior parts!! Was my rivy a special order?? Any info on another for sale? Im trying to figure out how to post pics!!

Hi, and welcome Jon. "Signature Series" is often the term used to describe the premium 7-spoke chrome wheel package (from GM) that came with selected Rivieras, I think after 1995. '98-99 Rivieras didn't have many options beyond the wheels and On-Star package. Not sure if the term was officially used by GM/Buick, or if the dealers coined the phrase, but it is acceptable to call the chrome wheels "Premium" or "Signature" series rims.

Adriatic blue was an interior color available with white exterior paint. I don't know if navy is the correct term, but it is a medium/dark-ish blue. There were many color options for interior, and may have been a darker blue, but I've not seen it. There where no soft tops for 8th gen Rivieras from the factory - this may have been a dealership ad-on, or a custom option from a previous owner. Same goes for the gold emblems and accents - these were not original options. Many cars are resold with gold embellishments as a dealer add-on package (sometimes called "24k"). Sometimes these look pretty good, especially on white exterior paint.

To post pics, click on the "host and image" at top of the the reply field, or set-up an account at Photobucket and copy/paste the URL info using the "insert an image" button. Best of luck!

x2 on everything AA said. Somebody added all that extra stuff, and probably threw on some "Signature Series" logos. There are a few Buicks rolling around my area with soft tops and gold accents. It's definitely an aftermarket "accessory".

My Riv is soft top, blue interior with gold badging called the "Southwest Edition" purchased from Liberty Buick in Phoenix. At one time they sold the most Buicks in the country, not sure if that is still true.

I saw one in AA's color (No idea what the color is called) with a black soft top that I thought looked absolutely awful. I'd imagine white and navy probably looks nice. My grandma had a Park Ave in that color scheme that I thought looked nice.
