Hello everyone. Since I am new to the forum, it's only right that i share pictures of my ride. happy This is a 1995 S/C


Here is my rivi. notice the rather large dent right above the wheel. I bought it like that, but it's going to be fixed soon.

The other side.

The front. I'm going to go to autozone and put those chrome pieces in the grill like a lot of you guys did. It looks nice.

Any way, thats my car. i plan on doing a lot with this car when i get some money (graduation should bring in a good amount. i have lots of family)
I plan on having this car well after college, and hopefully i can fix it up good enough to bring to car shows and such later on.

If you have any questions or want to see more pics, just let me know. ill be happy to happy

And if you have any suggestions on what i should do to my car, let me know. I notice there aren't alot of places on the web that talk about riviera modding and such, so all suggestions are very appreciated. I'm sure there is alot that i don't know about yet.

Thanks for the look!

I think no matter what you want to mod.....there is probably someone here who has done it and can steer you in the right direction.

I appreciate the offer, but don't pull apart your car on my count! Your Riv is sweet and I wish you the best of luck with her.

Nice Rivi... This site is pretty helpful when it comes to ideas and things you didn't know about your Rivi. I can't wait to see updated picture. after this year or next year, i gonna have to stop driving it so i can put money into it the way i should. Check mine out.

I have the exact same wheel cover, and I purchased it at Auto Zone (here in Delaware too!!). I love the thing, and it matches my aftermarket wood kit spot-on. Ron, we need to get together some time. I had no idea there was another member on here from Delaware. bounce

zeeman645, you sound a lot like me: You got the car while in school still and plan on keeping it well past college. You also have the same alloy wheels that used to be on mine originally. I plan on keeping mine until I die jesus ... she has served me well through college so far. Hrm... not sure if I'm talking about my gf or my car at this point... but regardless, best wishes!

Welcome.


That was the color of my Riv before it became the lime green car in my signature pic. But mine had a lot of deep scratches that inspired me to paint it. I couldn't ignore the opportunity to do something different.

You are lucky though, mine came with a Grinch-colored leather interior which really dated the car. A cream interior is much better and timeless.
