    I prefer the '91 style Riv.
    The newer ones remind me of a jag from the rear with the tail lights(smooth,round), but the sharp edges of the front fenders clash. Then the battery is under the rear set also.

    These cars were always very unique...65 was my personal favorite year. This one pictured has the 425 'nailhead' with factory dual quads...under rated at 360 hp and 465 lb/ft of torque.

    This is what my first car was...a 65 Buick Wildcat. Mine was dark blue though.

    One day I'll have another 65 Buick of some description./forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    My buddy when I lived in Florence, Arizona had a 72' Riv, and a 71' Bonneville ragtop. Both had 455's. Awesome cars.
