Wow... A design icon. Probably the best body styling to ever come from Cadillac, one of my all-time favs as well. You don't see those rolling down the street every day. So why are you getting rid of the Riv? You'll need a daily driver, especially when you need to make repairs to that Toro FWD system - good luck finding parts at reasonable prices. What a car, and black too! Nice find!

New pics of the Riv with 5% window tint...

15% is legal in Oklahoma, but it's not really enforced unless they are just looking for a reason to pull you over. I like the 5%. It keeps the car cooler. I just drive it to work and on the weekends so I don't drive it at night. You can see at night. It just takes a little more effort. These pics were taken on top of a parking garage downtown.

If you do get yourself an eldorado or deville, I have a '76 500" motor with a street/strip cam, rockers, rod bolts, etc w/ 10K miles on the build that pulls like hell, had it in my suburban for a few years, saved the motor when I scrapped the 'burb... I've been trying to figure out what to do with the engine.

Thanks guys. I appreciate the comments. Black looks great, but it sure is hot when it's a hundred effin degrees outside. I guess anything is though.

I still want a '67 Eldo. I shouldn't have left the one I was looking at get away. I decided to hang on to the riv and find an Eldo too. The Riv means more to me than the dollar value it's worth unfortunately. So I might as well keep it. My biggest concern about the Eldo is where to get the transmission worked on in that beast.

The exhaust tips are just that...just the tips for now. I'll do a DP in the future but that's about it. I like her running quiet. That way I can here the S/C and the FWI.
