Been lurking for a while. I am currently looking for a '97+ Riviera but not having much luck. I drove 1000 km last weekend only to find that the car I had phoned about the day before was sold before I could get there. frown

I just posted in the HUD topic in Interiors so I thought I should post a quick intro. Been around cars forever, my last project was a 3800 N/A swap into a Fiero (second one still in progress) and before that a V8 swap into a S-10 and a frame swap on a '52 Chevy Burban. I also have a '78 Vette with a ragtop conversion.

I've already learned a lot on this forum, looks like a great place. I hope to find my Riviera soon so I can start contributing!

Welcome!

Sucks about the wasted trip! I would have been pissed! Finding one in nice shape can be tough. Good luck with your hunting!

Thanks for the welcome guys. The '97 that was sold was apparently in incredible shape. The only other non-95 around here is 250 km away and was pretty rough when I looked at it. Pretty dirty an a long list of stuff that needed to be fixed.

RickW - If I ever find a Riv, I will certainly post some details. That, remote doors, bluetooth radio and an intercooler/pulley at at the top of my list!

SToP, find my thread in the audio section titled 'help me choose a head unit' (or something like that). I still love the radio and the installation.

Hi Karma, I have enjoyed some of your writeups on the forum here. Thanks for the warm welcome, neighbor! smile

Deekster, that's the same unit I was interested in.. That or the Alpine with nav but I'm leaning toward the Pioneer. I have nav on my phone and I don't want to attract attention with the LCD screen. And the difference in price is equivalent to a short stack intercooler! smile

I'm glad you pointed me to that thread, it answered a lot of questions I had about how well the Pioneer fit and how well the PAC worked.

Welcome! And good luck with your search. I had to drive over 220 miles round trip ( and made the trip twice) to get my riv. Its a hard car to find at the right price and in the right shape , and sometimes just in general. Well worth the 4 month or so wait and the long drive. I've never been happier in any car.

I drove 345 miles to Ohio to get mine two years ago. Fortunately I didn't waste a trip and bought the car. It was in need of a little work but over the last two years I have put lots of love and 46,000 miles on her and she still runs great. You'll never be happier than in a Riv! Welcome aboard.hi
