I like em but dont have one. My favorite is 67 (i think) with the hidaway headlights that opened up like a clam shell. If I remember correcty, some pretty big power plants available back in the day.

Why you ask, got one with some pics maybe!!

I have a '70 Riv. I'll be posting some pics soon enough. Had it for 5 years now and absolutely love it. I don't want to bore the forum if there is no Riviera love, that's the reason for my post.

I like most all, but like 66,67,71,72s best. Never owned one but knowing me I might someday. Saw a 71 on CL recently that was not advertised as anything special but had 1/2 vinyl top that extended up under doors and back to point on tail. Looked well done similar to Cadillac El Diora conversion done by ASC. Called but was sold.

This is a pic of the new 455 Big Block I am currently installing. Been fairly busy lately but I'm hoping to have it complete and fired up/broken in by next weekend.

If I am not mistaken, I think that half vinyl top was a rare factory option. Better luck next time that it's not sold when you call.

don't remember what year it was (73?), but a guy that worked for me had a beautiful gold boat-tail.

had a great stance and muscle to back it up.

My older sister had a 65. First year with the clamshell hideaway headlights. Silver metallic with white interior. Had a 401 with 4 barrel carb. That car could hall ass and eat gas.

I like the 71 to 73s the best. I like that "bulge" in the rear window and trunk. (I have no idea what it is actually called.)
