    Just wondering if anyone here is interested in this type of car anymore. I gave my grand niece one for her 16th birthday is in 2016. Blue exterior and interior not supercharged, had about 30k miles. Now it's got about 40k miles and they want to give it back. She wanted an SUV so she got it.

    I'd need to look it over and clean it up. Maybe a little more, but mostly cosmetic. They say it still runs fine and has needed nothing besides a new battery. Paint probably not very good, not garaged while she had it. But no body rust here in MS.

    I don't see any Rivieras for sale this vintage with less than 100k miles. So maybe it's special. Worth putting any money into it to make it relatively pristine? What say you?

    Love those cars (I've had three). The only problem is the NA engine...

    My Supercharged 98 now has over 200K on the original engine and transmission. They are great cars. Comfortable with nice ride, good power and great gas mileage. The paint sucked on them, all of them.
