I have a 1991 Buick Riviera. Yes, I know I don't have the nicer 9th Gen ones. I mostly joined because I want learn more about these cars and maybe share a few things. I want to tune my Riv' up to get some more horses out of it. And also for a support group to query against if anything goes wrong.

Anyway, here is my Riv'

:verymad: Absolutely not! You're not wanted here... please leave! :verymad:

(just kidding...)

Thanks for joining up. You've come to the right place. We'd like to learn more about your Riv, too. 8th gens are really cool cars, so I wouldn't say our 9th gens are nicer, they're just different, newer, and definitely faster.

Please share anything you want to about your car. A lot of our discussions apply to more than 9th gen Rivieras; sometimes the topic just covers cars in general. If there's something specific to your vehicle, here's a section just for you!

Welcome aboard, and btw, I heart Macs as well!

i like the 8th gen's, i just like the straight back ones better. i'd still have my 86 if it didnt get hit. best way to get more power is to do an L67 swap happy

no fear that you have one of the rare 8th gens. Many of us 9th gen owners have progressed here naturally from previous buick experiences. I had an '86 Riv, '94 Regal, my mom's '86 Century, '98 Park Ave... lots of buick fixing knowledge here.

Oh, and I have a '73 LeSabre awaiting some TLC time...

My '92 is pretty much retired at 215,600 miles. It will still get 28 mpg hwy and only uses 1/2 qt of oil in 3,000 miles, but looks terrible. I am planning on using the sunroof out of it to modify/modernize my '65, when I get the time.
