Hello to everyone in the forum. IM here probably like most of the people here who have this car sickness. ive just purchased my 7th car, its a 1990 Riviera. I already had an 85 model, but i love the bodystyle of the 89-93 as well, so i finally found one i could afford to add to the fleet.

Im hoping that as i learn more about this 1990 Riviera that i can be useful here, as well as learn some things that i previously didnt know. From reading through the forums, ive already found alot of things i didnt know about these cars.

i got a really good deal on this car, but it has some issues that will need to be worked out, and i hope to get to them when i can. with 6 other projects its going to be tough. so i hope i can do most of the work myself.

Welcome, Jase. Glad you found us. You're very right, we need more members with pre-'95 Rivieras. Hope you will stick around and help us learn more about your '90. In return, we'll try to help you out anyway we can!

Best,

Aaron

I'm really warming up to that body style. I didn't used to think it was so great or unique but since I've seen more around here I'm starting to like them alot.

Hey Jase,
I'm a newbie here too, but I used to own a '90 Riviera, so I may be able to help you out some.

I bought mine in '93 and practically polished the paint off of it I liked it so much!
1st wife got it in the divorce settlement and it went to heck after that. Hello new 1990 Sad-smiley-034
