Default My Riviera

... In my dreams.

But what a sweet car it would be. Definitely a one-of-a-kind deal. I'd prefer a maroon, black, or pearl white (like the 1996 I'm looking at) color, but the car with the chromies and Vogues -it'* a MUST HIT!

They don't state it in the auction, but yes, there never was a 1995-1999 Buick Riviera convertable. In fact there were never any L67 convertables from the factory -bummer.

Harofreak00 -those are stock original rims. Just like my sisters old 1995 Riviera, but hers weren't chrome, although chrome was an option.

I don't think those are stock rims. I"ve seen a lot of Rivieras and I've never seen those rims before. If they are stock, they are extremely rare. The convertable looks much better in another color IMO.

I am not much of a convertable guy, and so I can't appreciate a car which should be a hardtop, in convertable form. often times the convertable top, ruines the lines of the car.. making it change its image in my eyes. Like the new beetle, the conv. has different roof lines than the hardtop.. its the same thing with the classic beetles. My dad'* saab 93 is a convertable, and the lines are completely interupted by this conv. top.
