Check it out! I haven't owned a car in over 10 years (live in NYC), and saw this on Craigslist today and had to have it!!!

Wonderful to know there are very knowledgeable people here.

Welcome...


Interior is in very good shape! And great price too!

Except why is there no wood grain on the interior?

I am not a 100% sure, but I think it was an option in 95.

Wow, that is in great shape! Awesome find, I hope you keep it somewhat ding free in the city, they drive like maniacs there! By the way, there's NOTHING better than a washed, waxed, black Riviera, so if you get the opportunity, have it done. You won't be disappointed!


This is from the user 'oldsman105'. He's right over in Queens, and I guess he's your local guy if you need any big help. Click the picture to see his own showroom thread:

Picking it up today at 5:00. Thanks for welcomes and thanks for the link to oldsman105. Saw your vid on Youtube. Overnight, I've become 1995 Buick Riviera fanatic and I haven't driven it more than 5 miles!

Welcome to the board, Sally.

I too have just purchased a 1995 Riviera, Supercharged.

My riv' doesn't have the woodgrain either, though I'm looking closely at some aftermarket possibilities.
