I love my Blue Riviera but it is getting a little long in tooth. It has 228,000+ miles on it and a bunch of aggravating little stuff on the interior was driving me crazy. My daughters Park Avenue had reached a point where its' "issues" (the car not my daughter) outweighed the cost to buy another Riviera. So I traded.

I still like the color on the Blue one better and it has a great Alpine stereo. But I get one that has fewer miles and no interior issues. Body is in good shape as well.

How many other members have more than one Riv?

Along with the '96 I recently bought, I have a '70.
I have now owned 5 Rivieras in my life. More to come I am sure.


cheers

99Rivman has like 100 Rivieras (exaggerated, of course) but 2 of them are Silver Arrows. And they're all immaculately clean.

If you have a '99 that is silver then you also have a Silver Arrow?

I would too rock ,
I've look at a few but not real serious I guess. There are some out there and in good shape, I just don't have the space or even the money right now to get one.
The '70 455 was the strongest that was ever put out! Would be a great find!

Sorry about the signature. It is a 97 so it is not a Silver Arrow.

I have a 99 and a 64.
The 64 has the "Super Wildcat" 360 HP, 465 lb-ft of Torque with two carter AFBs from the factory. Its one of 2122 made that year. Its a driver but needs some work on the paint.

Nice man. My wallpaper is a '63. My dream Riv is either a '73 or '65 GS.

I too have two Rivs. My daily driver is my pearl white '98' and my summer car is my seafoam green '65'.
I've had a '90' and a '96' previously, but still like the '65' the best. (of course I'm an old dude, tho)
I'll keep driving Riviera's as long as I can find find them.... cool
