Well , here is a list as I sit right now of the cars I have owned. In order from first to last

1989 Dodge colt wagon
1992 Grand Marquis
1987 Mazda Rx7
1990 Eclipse
1990 Nissan 240sx
1990 Honda Civic
1992 Nissan 300zx twin turbo
1993 Honda Civic with a full type r swap
1996 Subaru Legacy, with a custom turbo setup
1990 Honda civic with b18b swap
1993 Honda Del sol
1992 Honda Civic with custom turbo setup
1988 Chevy s-10
1991 Toyota mr2 heavily modded, turbo
2000 Chevy Tahoe
1997 Honda Civic
1997 Buick Riveria

As far as my riv I have a 1997, I guess its loaded. I don't know much about these cars, I purchased it from my dad, who bought the car new, and took excellent care of it. I just had a baby girl, so I needed something child safe, little did I know how amazing this car was.

Brandon,
From one newbie on this board to another, Welcome!

With the '96 Riviera I just purchased, I am now on my 5th Riviera.
Once they are in your blood, they are hard to shake.

Wow I'm starting to think I'm the only one who hasn't gone through double digit numbers of cars by 21... That's crazy! But if that's how many it takes before you get to the right one (#17) so be it and WELCOME! Glad to have you here, Brandon!

Congratulations on the baby girl by the way!

Whatsup everyone, my name is darren and I bought a 97 riviera back in june 2008. I have been trying to get one since march of 07 and i finally got one. Its a supercharged one and it has 20 inch chrome rims and hid's in it. I also converted it and added a Hydrogen kit to it for about 200 dollars and it made an instant and huge increase in hp and a nice increase to gas mileage. Ill post pics as soon as I figure out how. I also have an oldsmobile aurora, I gave that to my wife after i got my buick though

Hi Brandon, hi Welcome to the site and congrats on getting a safe riv for your baby, just remember no matter how safe a vehicle is, it all relies on the driver, and how safe you drive. This is a pretty quick car that gets to speed quicker then you'd think with most people thinking its just a grandma beater, which it is definitely not. Anyways remember if you get stuck on anything or just need some help or info, hit us up and we will back you up cheers
