Looks good!

How many miles? Is this being handed down to you?

My dad bought a Yaris, rising fuel prices and all; he was going to sell this car, but I really, really love it. I'm a big Riv fan; I don't think there's another car in the world quite like the Riviera. So, I asked him if he'd consider keeping it for me to drive; and after a while he said he would. I'm quite happy about that. smile

Smart of your Dad to keep the Riv for you, imo. Aside from having a great look, these boats can move you in a hurry, so they're a lot of fun. But at the same time they are big and heavy, and will protect you in case of an accident. I think more parents should put their kids in older, bigger vehicles. Save little cars like the Yaris for the experienced driver!

i like the contrast in the first pic. looks to be in great shape for the miles, but you should consider taking off the AAA sticker lol
as said before you can ask us anything about the car, thats why we are here!
btw mothers back to black can do wonders for that back bumper plastic, i dont know if its just the pic but it looks dry and brown.

Your car is beautiful! Your dad better be getting some pretty kick @$$ father's day, birthday, etc. gifts! The Rivs are hard to find and they go fast! (both on the sale and the road happy) You're off to a good start.

Slight mooch job here: This is what mine looks like, but with a sunroof.
(sorry to have to "borrow" until I get mine back).

Very sharp looking Riv, Brian. I know about the passion for these cars. I had a 90, 96. I currently have a 65 & 98, I wish they were still makin them............ frown

Huh? I thought you wrote "new Riviera", lol. J/k. It's a chop for sure, just not a Riv, imo.
