Alright, good to be here! I just bought my 1995 Supercharged Riviera, and I'll rattle off some of the specs.

Light, silvery blue exterior
Dark teal interior
84,909 miles
Just had a tune up
Stock engine and everything

This car is in immaculate condition, no cracks in the leather, not a scratch outside, and the emmissions ratings are at 0.2 HC and 0.1 NX. I'm not sure exactly what chemicals they are, because I don't feel like going out to the car to check the reciept from that checkup, but you guys'd know what I'm talking about. The guy I bought it from was a car nut, and obsessive about car care! He even left me tire shine, wheel cleaner, wax, polish, leather cleaner, a clublock, and a pinetree air freshner!!! I paid $4,000 for it, and when I tell you guys this, you'll know how much money I saved!

Within the last year, he has had:

New, stronger radiator
new air filter
new battery
new power window motors
new alternator
new brake rotors and pads
wheel alignment

and because he was selling it to me, he went and fixed the power mirror motors and put 4 NEW TIRES ON!!! I fell in love with this car the first time I saw it, and now I really appreciate that crease that runs from the headlights back, and I'm having a blast taking pics of it with my Kodak V-610! The only flaw, and it's a small one, is that the "R" logo is cracked inward, but as long as I don't mess around with it it should be fine. Since it's my first car, and an excellent one at that, I don't plan on racing it or messing around with the engine, so don't expect me to show up in those forums. Instead, I'm gonna shine it up 'till you can see your face in the VINYL! Enjoy, and thanks for welcoming me!

Welcome to the forum!

btw this is riv_performance_ after all, so you can certainly learn how to make it faster here. But keep in mind the '95s are harder to make faster if you should get that bug...

Welcome to the family! hi
there are still plenty of things you can do besides mods wink
the tune up is a good start, but did he replace the fuel filter too?

Yeah, he knew that the fuel filter is a common problem on the '95's, so he had that done too!

My dad and I put a stick of blue neon under the drivers dash near the courtesy light, where it's recessed. Looks so cool at night, I'll put up a pic tonight!

Upper Westchester, it's the last county south before you hit the city. You know I'm not taking my car anywhere near NYC with the way they drive.

Also, here's a video I took the day after I got it!

Haha, I love Cedar Point! We have our family reunion in Indiana, stay with family back in Bellfontane, Ohio, and one year we went there. I LOVE the Milennium Force coaster! Unfortunately, I won't have my senior lisence or the confidence to go interstating until after this summer, so if I go it won't be in my Riv.
