A new Riviera site! Cool! cool

Hi everyone, I'm Dave from Cedarburg, WI. hi

I just found the site and registered, so after I jot a note here I'll start cruisin' the pages to see what's up here. It looks like a great place for mechanical references, especially for modding my '98 Riv.

I have owned it for about 1 1/2 years now, but haven't had the time to tinker with it too much yet. When I bought it from the original owner, I swear he had a tear in his eye as I drove it away... This thing is super clean! The problem is it just runs too damn good already, and I spend so much time on the road driving it I don't have time to mod it! I drive 120 mi. every day to/from work. This is why I have 173K on it already... rolleyes Hey, as long as it keeps performing!

I am a shade-tree mechanic by addiction. I never let anyone else touch my vehicles unless it is absolutely something I cannot conquer or I just don't have the tools with me. (like when my Tahoe's fuel pump went on our vacation down in NC) headbutt

Looking forward to meeting more of you, reading up on what's new here, and seeing what is the best way to start getting more HP out of my Riv! jump

Dave, welcome aboard! I bought my 98 from an old farmer last year, and I swear he was about to cry when he handed me the keys. The Riv was something he treated himself to in 2000, and he really didn't want to part with it. But they were new car shopping, and he wasn't about to let his truck go, so I got the Riv.

Tons of modding info here, dig in! smile
