I have a '95 Riviera I have owed for close to a year. I bought it on eBay as I always liked them but at that time they for still close to $15,000.

I have done some repairs on it in the past year but it's been a great car. I have replaced 1 exhaust manifold, a/c compressor, new serp belt and tensioners, water pump, 1 ball joint, and front brakes/rotors.... The previous owner did not keep up on it. I also changed every fluid in the car.

Modifications are pretty minor... It has muffler delete, moon racing disc wheels, and I yanked the front turn signals and moved them to the corner lamps.

This summer I plan to shave the side moldings and perhaps the handles and repaint the car. I am also working out a custom and grille and tail light assembly. I am definately looking for that info on lowering the car approx 2".

I will have pictures here sometime this week. Thanks for having a new member.

Yeah.... It resonates just a bit too much. I might replace the resonator that's still on it with a Smithy muffler.

My name is Hirohata Merc....an ode to the arguably most famous custom car of all time.
