A while back, I saw another post from a member about putting "Gran Sport" emblems from a Regal on his Riv. I thought it was a very good idea and decided to do it myself. To whom ever had the idea- Thanks.A good idea 100_0530

Very nice... And very appropriate for a supercharged car. I recently likened my '97 S/C to the '67 GS that one of my friends drove to high school.
(That 430", Posi GS did 0-60 in 7 seconds flat... Of course, the gas gauge moved as fast as the speedometer. twisted )

I think the emblems work on that car because of the color.

That is true.

I suppose, though, that one could either black out the centers or else customize them with a bottle of matching touch-up paint...
Damn, now I've got another bee in my bonnet! king

That was me that put the gran sport emblems on my car. I started out with the same ones that you used, but then opted to buy new ones and the only ones I could find were off a '96 Regal. They are a little smaller than those and don't have the chrome around them, just black with red letters but that works on my black riv. I like how those look on your car and I stil might add the one on the trunk lid like did.

It was an "old man car" the owners wife was in a wheelchair and if they went anywhere-they took the minivan with wheelchair lift. The Riv was a second car and hardly used. It had 3K when I bought it 2 years ago. jump
