Default Hello All!

Hey everybody, just joined a few days ago and love the diversity of the site. I own a 1995 Buick Riviera */C with 177k miles on the clock. My dad repainted the entire car a couple years ago now with a black roof and smoothed and painted lowers. It has a shaved trunk lock and a few other small cosmetics mods. It is garaged winters but when it is on the road, has been a total joy! So far, the only mods done so far are a custom fender-well intake, 180* t-stat, Custom 3" downpipe and gutted cat. In the next month or so, I plan on installing AL 104 plugs, 1.8:1 Yella Terra roller rockers, 2.5" */C pulley, a 3" exhaust to the y-pipe as well as a resonator delete. After that, going to have the PCM tuned and thats as far as I plan on going in the mod department. It looks like a great site here and I cant wait to see what everyones done with their rides!

Thanks!
Dave

Welcome to the site! Nice Riviera, too! Any plans for nicer wheels? Not that I don't like the stock rims, but, some nicer wheels would really set that car off nicely.

Thanks guys! And I do plan on getting some new rims at some point. I am just waiting for the right set to come along. I would like a nice set of 18'* but I also dont want to cheap out so Ill continue saving up for something that Ill really be happy with!
