Hi, I'm not a Riviera owner yet, but I'm working on it! After the 1970 Buick GSX, the 71 Riviera and late model ones are my second favorite cars. Buicks run deep in my family. My dad had a 94 Century that lasted to well over 300,000 miles when he sold it. My first car was a 99 Century. My last car was a 71 Skylark. I currently am driving a 73 Nova coupe, but a 98 Riv just became available near me, so I'm working on selling the Nova so I can buy it! I love the style, power, and the "that's a Buick?" factor. So far I've learned A LOT about these cars just browsing through the pages on this site. Thanks for the knowledge and I hope to join your ranks soon!
