No problem. I'll clean it up later when I have some free time to waste.

Beautiful pics, AA, and as I've said several times, always nice to see another slate green riv. I think it looks excellent as-is. I've had mine for about 10 years and have yet to see another one the same color in person.

Had no idea only around 800 were done that color... I thought it was over 1000 for some reason...

Hey Charlie. Been at school (6 classes @ once on top of work and other things) but finally graduated a couple weeks ago... I'm free! Oh wait... I'm in the real world now, so I guess not quite. But whatever the case, I can post more now! (Sorry for the thread hijack, AA - carry on)

It's called slate green metallic. Only about 800 Rivs painted this color according to Comp9 site. It's original, but one side has been repainted - twice. I think there's a magnet inside the driver door, LOL.

Since Buick made interiors to match/compliment the exterior, it's next to impossible to find interior parts.

Hey AA, just curious... what color is your interior? Sorry if you've mentioned it before. I'd just like to see if mine is the same as our exterior is the same.

It's a light sea-mist or sea-foam green, almost grey.

Wow, okay, cool beans... I'm sure the color combo is pretty damn rare then. Mine's interior is taupe (nothing special)... was wondering why it's difficult for you to find pieces and easier for me!

Interesting how they change colors.

That "light green" interior sounds nice. I've got the old "Jadestone" which is a dark "teal" ... which for the longest time I thought was "blue" rolleyes

I disagree. Nothing special? Yeah right, you have a sweet color combo.

Wow, I guess my lt. green interior is more common than I thought. Says they used it on black, white, and green Rivs, too.

I'd think not many owners of black or white Rivs picked it, though.

lol good looking out Charlie razz

Yeah AA, I really can't recall seeing that color interior on more than a handful of cars... the list doesn't say when the colors were introduced though so if it was introduced in 97-98, then probably only a few have it! Plus if you change the year at the top from 98 to 99, EVERY exterior color can come with EVERY interior color lol... probably not 100% accurate

Yes, I had gotten used to the yellowed ones, but I really like the look of the car now. Looks like new!
