Hi everyone. My name is John Schmidt. I was invited by Charlie Robinson to join your website. Some of you may know my Riviera as a 96 Riv on a tube chassis. with a twin turbo Buick V6 and liberty equalizer 5 speed. I have done little racing the past two years in the car experiencing clutch issues and lack of commitment. This year is also going to be very slow as I have been put on the shelf just having a quadruple bypass. I fully intend to make the BPG Nationals and the Cecil County race. The best the car has run is 7.10 @ 184.MPH. I attached a video but was informed I have to wait 7 days before posting an external link. I will be glad to share any and all information about the car. Thanks.

Welcome! I remember seeing pictures of your Riv years ago and thinking how cool it looks. If you want, send me a pm with your link and I can post it for you before the 7 days are up.
