Hi everyone...
My name is Pierre Lauzon from Montreal Quebec.I am now the proud owner of a 1997 Riviera. My father bought it new . The car has now 132000 kilo.it is all original, it even have the original rotor and pads......The color is Teal with matching interior.According to compnine.com only 628 cars were shipped north of the border.My Pontiac Fiero is now gone , welcome Riviera....
This is the 4th Riviera in the family. My father bought his first in 68. I learned to drive with this 1968 brown Riv .He owned a 68, 74, 78(or 77) and the 97..

Look at those cornering lights!!! Must have been garaged it whole life and never driven in the rain? Leak in the trunk is common and there's a thread about it coming from the lenses.

Overall, very pretty car cheers

Nice ride! I had a monster leak in my trunk, one of the seams behind the lights split, it was a water fall in there whenever it rained.

Now that's something you don't see everyday.... A two car garage that will actually hold 2 cars.

I have one of those and have never seen 2 cars in it. Too many tools and bikes.

I swear that this winter I Will fit the Riv inside.

But, I did see this nice Hydraulic Press on sale...........

BTW, Welcome and very nice car.

Tell me about it... My dad originally had a garage built into the house, and after about 10 years he had a detached garage built that would hold the Lincoln, the pickup truck, a work bench and a whole bunch of crap! tongue

I was gonna say the american way is to fix the small driveway problem, not the too many vehicles - north american way?
Anyway I don't know if you had your heart set on a z already but why not just build another fiero that can wipe the floor with a z since you're already comfortable with 'em?
