Though I'm probably not the demographic Buick was thinking of with the 79 Riviera, I love it.
When I initially purchased my Riviera, the rear coil springs had been clipped, the pneumatic shocks had been deactivated, and the wheels had been swapped for minis- thus, if more than two people were in the car, it would drag along the ground.
Also as a result of the low-riding, the starter had been knocked clear off the flex-wheel.
The vinyl is pulling away at the edges- but still in OK condition.
The car is in great condition inside and out- even the engine is clean.
The 350 purrs.
The upholstery has been likened (by my friends) to the inside of a really expensive coffin..
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
