Default 1983 Buick Riviera Convertible

I bought this car new 30 years ago. It is still in pristine new condition with 130,000 miles. I have driven this convertible across country and up and down both coasts. I have won many awards at car shows across the country including several from the Riviera Owners Association for Best Convertible. This car has been great fun and will never sell it.
