Hello!
My name is Jeremy of course, and i have been a Nissan mechanic for the past four and a half years- I do not prefer Nissans by any means, they just gave me a job lol.... I just retired from the dealership mechanic business to open a performance based classic car shop of my own. It's going to be small time for awhile i'm sure, but hopefully things will eventually take off. Anyways, last week I saw this beautiful little Riviera sitting down the road from my house, so i decided to take a look at it. Wow is all i could say it's a one owner 1995 with the supercharger and pretty much everything else you could order on it. It even has gold emblems and a funky factory set of gold and chrome wheels that i have not seen another set of on any Riv. An old man came out and proceded to tell me that he bought the car new, and only drove it on weekends and to go see his daughter in South Carolina twice a month. He then proceded to show me all the paperwork ie. the dealer invoice where he ordered the car- even the original window sticker is still inside the glove box! He said that he just had the car serviced, and that the computer had been replaced about a year earlier. He let me drive it, and i was instantly hooked. These cars are amazingly comfortable, handles very confidently, has plenty of bottom end torque, and gets great mileage to boot. (my last vehicle got 13.5) So i asked how much he was wanting, and he said "I wont take a penny less than four thousand for it". Well, that was all i needed to hear so here I am. I am already interested in making this car what GM execs really desired to have in 95' so any help in selecting the proper parts for this thing will be appreciated. I will try to have some pics posted in the next couple of days. Thanks for making this site!

Excellent! I paid $4,000 on the nose for mine too! Put up some pics, and you can see mine in the Riviera of the Month gallery. Mine was a 2-owner, but the second only put 20,000 miles on it and fixed everything that was broken before selling it to me, and was an avid car cleaner! He had another '95, and then an '87 GNX...that was his baby, but I got one hell of a deal! Welcome to the family!
