Nice engine sizes.

How on earth did they manage to get just 150 hp out of a 350 motor in the 70 and 80 I don't understand, even with smog regulation.
Rodo Hernandez Luciano Ortiz Jan 03, 2013
My old man told me that he considered it a Gentleman's Muscle Car.
Shane Carroll Jan 01, 2013
Gotta love the that mid-70s horsepower
David Munasinghe Jan 04, 2013
Nice interior
Jommel Marcella Jan 02, 2013
That's awesome.
Max Jabaay Jan 01, 2013
Interesting color choice.
David Munasinghe Jan 04, 2013
I like where the head lights sit. Lol
Rodo Hernandez Luciano Ortiz Jan 03, 2013
I think my dad once told me that he always thought of the late 60's - early 70's Riviera to be a Gentlemen's Muscle Car.
Kyle McCullough Jan 02, 2013
465? That's huge. Like 7.5L
Description: The Riviera was mercifully killed off in 1993, but then GM surprised everybody when it revived the nameplate without completely botching the job in 1995. The styling of the '95-'99 Riviera w...

Take the CTS coupe and make it more of a cruiser than sporty. It could be a cheap GT
Zachary Maughan Jan 01, 2013
Actually, y'all reported a while ago that Buick had re-applied for the Riviera trademark. So perhaps they are planning a new one (based on a Cadillac maybe?)
Joel Lancia Kanny Oct 14, 2013
The Boat Tail!
Joel Lancia Kanny Oct 14, 2013
My favourite Riviera!
David Munasinghe Jan 04, 2013
Nice boat tail .
William Downs Jan 01, 2013
I like bikes better, majority of the time there is no way around them, just have to take apart the bike till u get to where u gotta, more tedious then a pain at least to me anyway
Timothy Hooker Jan 01, 2013

William Downs Jan 01, 2013
They are, I love working on old american cars, no cramped spaces, and everything is easy to get to.... now Adays u gotta be a contorsionist to work on modern cars
Bill Estep Jr Jan 01, 2013
That engine bay has to be massive
Joel Lancia Kanny Oct 14, 2013
In the end, the Riviera turned out to be disappointing and Buick killed it, and I could not believe that my younger brother actually liked this version! Seriously?
Greg Lewis Jan 02, 2013
It's a shame they never put the 4.0 v8 that the aurora used in this. Wasn't much faster maybe 6.5-7.0 60 jaunt, but would of sounded better and opened up for plenty upgrades
Luis A Villalpando Jan 01, 2013
This is the only ugly car in this article, the rest are nice
Austin Whitener Jan 01, 2013
I can't believe they made a supercharged one of these
Ian Barger Jan 01, 2013
This is just to ugly.
Bill Estep Jr Jan 01, 2013
Gotta be a Balla to drive this lol jk
Dimitry Mikhailovich Malikov Jan 01, 2013
The interior is pretty nice as well!
John M Weishahn Jan 01, 2013
This car is underappreciated. It had a very smooth design and a decent motor.
