Since before I had a learners permit I have loved these Riviera's. My first I purchased in 1994 when I was only 14 years old. The passion has followed with me always. Now my children get to understand what it is to have your dreams come true. We often go cruising in my Boattail to cruise nights and big shows.
I am teaching them how to perform tune ups , carb adjustments and all kinds of basics. They are 6 and 4 and love turning wrenches.
I love all classic American cars but the only one for me is my 1972 Buick Riviera. The 455 is an awesome motor! My Riv is a Southern California car and I am the third owner . I have all the paper work and manuals , sales brochures and so on. The Original owners Silver cross hangs from my Rear view mirror.
Along with the second owners Fireman decals. So I travel in my Riv and I have a little bit of the previous owners still with the car.
I am very proud of my Riviera! As I am honored to be responsible for the Riv for now.
My children will get this to enjoy and take care of when My time is up. They have the love and the passion just like myself. Also they are respectful of fine classics and I have trained them to look and admire but never touch!
It is great always being the only Boattail at shows. These are very rare and unique cars that helped GM develope modern tech back in 1971 , like digital dash, high mount stop lights , throttle body tungsten headlights and more.
A great classic car and a head turning Ride.
Makes me proud to be an American!
