Hello All,

Just inherited a 1997 Riviera SC, high-miler, but well cared for. Car has been in my family since new. This is my second Riviera, I had a 1983 Riv in the mid-1990's.

Would be interested in hearing about trustworthy mechanics in my area - I am dying to get this baby dialed in!

Cheers,

El_Riveriero

Welcome to the forum El_Riveriero and congrats on the new Riv, many good mechanics right on this site..I used to run the QEW myself (dated a girl in Burlington and have some friends at Hamilton airport where they park the Lancaster bomber) How's things across the border? I sure miss the strip joints. When you get your Riv dialed in, head down to Lundy's lane and shoot a few stoplight to stoplight runs. I used to live in Niagara Falls NY and always found the best races (and cars) across the bridge....rev on!

Thanks everyone for the warm welcome! There sure is a LOT of info on this site. I am trying to pace myself in my aquisicion of knowledge as I am just a Riviera padawan learner. Hoping to become Riviera Jedi at some point and contribute to the forum in a meaningful way. I'm a bit of a techno-geek in case that wasn't obvious wink
