PostSubject: Hello Riv Performance Members   Thu Jan 01, 2009 1:23 am

Just joined today and ordered a couple of T-shirts for the cause. I've owned both a 96 Riv (wife's driver) & 97 Riv (my driver) before I retired mid 2003. I currently own a 92 that I've shown at BCA & ROA meets (am a member of both org's). Just sold my 85 last week to a BCA/ROA member. Am keeping an eye out for either a 98 or 99 that I'll probably purchase during this year sometime.

I thank everyone for the warm welcome! I believe I recognize Randall from NC and Derek from MA!! How are both of you doing? Either of you planning to attend the 2009 ROA Sacramento meet? My wife and I are flying out to the meet due to the fact that I really don't want to put that many miles (MA to CA round trip) on the 92 Riv.

Doing fine, and you? thumbsup
I'm not going to make it to CA, I have been going to two out of three meets for the last several years but I don't even try for the West Coast meets, I kind of figure if it is within 1000 miles, give or take a few, I am going. Like you said going 2000 miles PLUS each way just isn’t something I am able to do right now, I’m not retired yet. wink I thought about flying out but figured I needed to some house stuff this year so I can be sure to be ready for next years meet back here in the East!

I will post some pics of my 92 as soon as can figure out how to accomplish it. In the meantime and for you ROA members who tend to keep your RIVIEW magazines, my car was pictured in the Jan/Feb 2008 issue "Another Honest Dave" article. Also, I entered it in the 2007 and 2008 ROA meets in the 86-99 Riv class. It took 3rd at Asheville and 4th at Galina. Randall's 95 black beauty took 1st at Galina in this class!! I want to thank Randall for convincing our ROA Director to finally separate the class into 86-93 and 95-99 for upcoming meets!

I recognize your car now, Dave. Very classy looking '92'.
I had a dark brown '90'. I always liked the ride that car gave, very comfortable and the leather seats fit nice.
I had the seafoam green '65' that took first place for that class at Galena. I'm sorry that I didn't meet you there.
I've found that most of the Riviera people I've met are very nice people... happy

Jimmy, I bet you saw Dave even if you didn't get to meet him! Dave was the other BUSY headbutt member along with me, that was directing the parking of your Rivs for the show. yay

Jimmy,
I was the short guy w/ the salt & pepper beard (carrying the never empty Buick coffee mug) that Randall had recklessly stand behind each Riv shouting "aim for my chest through your rearview mirror" while the driver was backing up!!
