Default the riviera

here are some horrible pictures of my car, but I just thought I'd post some while I am waiting to get some new ones. as you can tell, my digital camera is on its verge of dying so it isn't taking good pictures now. But, I think you'll get the idea.

naw, not yet. It outruns all my friends' cars though. My mom'* 2000 SSEi does feel a little more peppy than my car though, I don't know if it'* just because of the age/miles though, or what..

not yet. I am pretty discouraged from it after I had the exhaust shops actually curse and yell at me about how it was going to ruin a car like that by putting different exhaust on it. I think it just pissed them off that a young guy (I'm 18 ) was driving a car like that and wanted to do that to it. If people think it'* stupid, or it'* going to ruin the car I'd rather not put exhaust on the thing. it'* just so damn quiet now, you can't even hear it. lol.

I personally don't like the tail lights on the Riveria, but I always thought it was one nice looking vehicle.

And the pictures ain't bad, just little (for an old guy like me anyways).

Good looking ride man!

get an intake so you can hear that SC WHINE (see wills post in Forced Induction). I am sure you can find a shop that will do it for you, be persistant, and good luck.

I'm a big Buick fan and your car turns me on.

How much does the Riviera weigh though? (compared to other Buicks)
