So basically he just eliminated functional items like the rub strips, side marker lamps, fuel door, door handles, and license plate; and put huge rims on it.  

Honestly, he doesn't understand the car.  I bet he's never had the chance to see one in person, to walk around it and appreciate the bone line that wraps around the cockpit of the car.  I don't think he knows it exists, and that IMO is one of the best lines ever to be put on a car.  

He's also too young to appreciate the 8th gen Riv in the context of its time.  The organic styled cars represented a radical transformation of car design greater than anything that has come since.  The only thing comparable would be the shift from the pre-WW2 cars to the post-WW2 cars.  There are some really nice teen era cars, but even the best ones aren't mind blowing.  They're what we've seen before, with more creases and details.  And big rims that aren't practical, but for some reason that look caught on.  They may corner a little better than a 15" rim, but only when they're not bent.    

Were you the one guy who voted for the Riviera?


edit-

Now that the comments have loaded, it's great to see how many people appreciate the 8th gen Riv.

It doesn't look too bad though I still prefer a classic Riv.

The light bar is the best part, but I think the Riv actually has that, as a reflector.

another 4+ year old video you have posted here that has nothing to do with this thread.

don't know if you are actually still trying to sell your cars this many years later but the boasting about your cars here amongst people that are very familiar with these Riviera's is most likely not helping your cause.

So I'm not a big fan of the redesign... but I will say the custom bumpers somebody did a few years ago was a great mod. But the riv as built was always a near perfect look (should have included portholes imo)
