Just bought a '95 and found this site. Thank God for you guys. What does gold script mean? Do they all have aluminum hoods? I'm an old fart so will figure out how to get a picture up. See you later.

Hi Jeff. Welcome to the board!

All 8th gen Rivieras have aluminum hoods. Gold script is a dealership add-on. usually called a "24k edition". Looks nice though!

welcome! they tried to save weight with the aluminum hoods, but too bad most of them are peeling due to improper paint prep from the factory frown
rivs had chrome trim stock, but dealerships swapped them out for gold to try and make some more money off the cars.
