Not new to Rivs, but I just purchased a Teal Metallic '98 to add to my stable. Here are a few pics...











It took a while to find one with low mileage, but I was patient. Now, who can show me some pics of a wood dash kit that goes well with the beige/neutral interior?

Al,
Very nice find, very clean car. I think that's the same color as mine.

You mentioned the Stable, what else do you have and do you have pic's of the stable. We'd be interested!!!

Anyway, do a search on here for wood dashes and you'll see several different ones with all different interiors.

And, Welcome to the Forum, the best place in the World for Riviera Info.

There is a lot already documented on here. Look at the top of the Dashboard (this page) and click on the "write-ups" section for some good reading or as I mentioned try the Search and Advanced Search feature.

If you can't find things that way then we can always help with a little humor, if you can take it.

Wow, what a find, you are very lucky Al. You gotta tell us how you found her, and yes I am also interested in what else is in the stable!

Thanks to all for the kind comments. I found the car by searching CraigsList on a daily basis. I only looked in warm weather places, so I would not have to deal with Midwest rust issues. It is expensive to ship a vehicle from CA to WI, but all in it's still cheaper than paying $40k for a new car!

Fantastic collection Al, and they are all in such great shape, you are quite the enthusiast. My personal favorite is the 65' Gran Sport, must be a tough choice on which car to drive in the morning! tongue

Welcome, Al. The collection is beautiful, and congrats on the newest addition. The teal is my favorite color on the late model Rivs, and it looks very clean. This forum is a plethora of information. I couldn't have restored/modded mine the way I did without it!
