    Nice!! Love the Polyglas sneakers.

    I guess these cars were a thing with the 18 and over crowd. Seven of the first 9 owners of mine were all around that age. I can't imagine driving one of these as a teenager.

    All my contact with her has been by email. She thought "Rosewood" was a Riviera only color, which is not the case. But she liked it and it was on the dealer lot.

    Larke Buick in Hastings,MI. They closed shop around 1978.

    I get a text from Slater wanting to know the length of the fuel line hoses along the frame. So I told him I would crawl under my car to check and what I found was hardened and cracking hoses. Does this guy have some kind of psychic thing going on? Thanks Brett, it could have become a problem.

    Looking sharp!

    And running like a sewing machine. You're lucky down there - all it does up here is rain.

    I gotta figure out what settings I need on my phone to get sharper video. It's an iPhone 6s if anyone has some tips.

    If you're uploading to YouTube, I'm pretty sure you can adjust the settings so it plays on high def.

    Local cruise-in tonight with probably close to 300 cars. Just one other Buick, a ‘64 Riviera. The car got a good reception and it was a fun time sharing with the kids in the crowd. I was amazed at one 10 year old who knew what my car was and said he read about Stage 1’s in a book he had. He had more knowledge than most of the adults that came by.

    Got to love the kid. I'm always delighted when kids check out my car.

    My wife took a shot of the car headed out the drive. I was on my way to the cruise-in.

    I love the 96rock plate! I have one on the garage wall. I used to have the velcro wallet and a rock kard too.

    Anyone who spent time in this area in the 70's, 80's, and 90's knows 96 Rock. There were at least 6-7 cars at the cruise-in with a 96 Rock plate on their car/truck. Best rock 'n roll station ever.
