“I live in Sydney Australia and acquired this 1969 Riviera about May 2001.

I love big American cars and was considering Caddys and then Mustangs but when this Buick came up my Dad said we should check it out cause they were a great car with power windows, power seat, air, power steering.

It’s in pretty good condition or so we thought but I have spent a lot of money on overhauling the brakes and tailshaft, radiator and alternator.

The latest improvement is a new windscreen and rust repairs which should make for a very reliable car I hope.

I’m going to customise the dash and console soon and maybe get some nice billet wheels.”

Fantastic addition to the site Dallas. I can only imagine what it must feel like to cruise with your dad in his 1966 Riviera around the streets of Sydney.

Thanks for the submission – Bill.
