Greetings,
I have a 1998 pearl white supecharged coupe. I previously owned a 1996 supercharged and 1990 Riviera. The supercharged last models are scary quick. I also have a 1965 Riv with a 401 cu nailhead in it. I think the 98 is quicker off the line, but I wonder that the 65 might outrun it? It's good to see a forum dedicated to the last generation Riviera.

Welcome!

We have had and have almost some of the same models. My '65 also has the 401 in it. I would like a 425 better, and may change it later, since I'm not going stock with it, but it is a numbers matching car.

quite a collection you have had. welcome to the family! as posted before, lets see some pics of the 65 and 98 together happy
with very little $ in mods im sure the 98 could be faster than the 65, though the 65 would probably put down more power.

My brother Tim owns Exhaust Special-T's in Muskegon,Mi. The tips are LED light up tips. Red LED's between outer oval shaped chrome and inner round pipe. I think I like the Helo Axe chrome wheels-very radical and reflective. I think also the 3/8" whitewall really dresses the pearl white car up?
