    Saw this superb 65 Riviera 2 week ago at the Quebec City ISCA car show

    It was paint with a Cadillac color - Samoan Bronze - making it the one and only in this configuration.

    The Riv was on display at the host hotel for the Buick Nationals a couple of years ago.

    I saw the Riv up close at the BCA national as well, and it is perfection.

    I've thought the same thing. Unless you're a Buick guy or gal, you'd have no idea there's something cool like two 4s under that giant air cleaner. Shame they didn't do something cooler to really show it off.

    IMO the '63-'65 Riviera was one of the most beautiful post WW2 automobiles ever produced. The one in the OP is gorgeous.

    I've seen this car in person on a couple of occasions and..... DROP DEAD GORGEOUS is how I describe it. The best there is anywhere IMHO.

    ...my Riv GS bias is showing...I'm glad he did...rather than just those with first-hand experience, many can see what Buick created...
