I bought this riv in May of this year in Ohio with 24k miles on it. It was black-
and I have a long history of tutoneing Buicks with silver (easier to keep clean)-
my 1st was a 84 regal coupe with a chev V8. Anyway I have painted five buicks
that way- I guess I like it? Just got this back from the painter and spent a day
detailing the overspray and paint on the rubber parts (these cars are hard to
paint!) and had to take a couple of picts and see what you guys think. I know
some of you prefer stock but I restored Corvettes for 30 years and stock is not
my personality I guess- I want it like I want it. I like it- let me have it!

Or maybe with the center black and the sides silver. I haven't decided yet. I'll have to chop that next cool

I'm in Blaine- my sign shop is on 105th and Hwy65 (central ave.)

The break line is a couple inches down from where the factory put the pin-
stripe- I wanted more silver to show from the side since silver is my primary
focus. I had a silver '98 previous to this- not silver enough for my taste and I
never bonded with it. I am pumped now tho- l have a bunch more mods on
the drawing boards for this winter- when the vette goes to sleep. Gene

I like it ! Reminds me of the WH1 g-body regals.
Great way to mount the front license plate!

Don't paint the grey plastic parts black, the car will look weird.
