Well I just picked up a 1997 Pearl white chromed wheel loaded Riviera with 14,000 original miles. It was lady owned and garage kept. It is like new with the new car smell. Looks good parked with grand national...

I found it 1 1/2 years ago and tried to buy it then but not ready to sell. I happened to see her Saturday morning and follwed her to a parking lot where I asked if she had changed her mind yet?? She smiled and said why yes I have. She gave me the keys and said go drive it while she went in for coffee. She came out 15 minutes later and aksed do you want it? And of course I bought it. This is my 7th Riviera and the closest to new ever. I am located in Ontario Canada.

Congratulations! Show us the 2 parked side by side, the contrast should be sweet. Open a free account at www.photobucket.com then you load your pic files there. To post here, you just copy and paste the link from photobucket into your post. You can't upload images directly to the board.

Congrats. Now here comes the hard part: driving the car. When I bought mine it had only 24.7k miles - very tough to add miles to her! Oh well, that was a long time ago. Just turned 187k yesterday...

I remember a year or two ago a guy with a Silver Arrow on EBay with 9 miles on it.... he was looking for $28,500 for that.
But 14,000 miles is one awesome find.

I have another 1997 Pearl white Riv with 175,000 miles my wife drives daily. So I can always drive that to cure the itch. I am just glad to have it parked in the garage. I will take the pics tonight..

Are you trying to determine what the car is worth or how much you can sell it for?

You could put it on Ebay and have the starting bid a little lower than what you would sell the car for a set the reserve at what you would sell for.

How much did you give for it?

Just guessing but I would think it should be worth at least $8000.00 if it is in pristine condition.

I thought so too. i have to have it appraised for the insurance companyfor an agreed value. But just how do you replace an all original low mileage car in the case of a total loss???

NADA and KBB both value it at right around $7000.
