1982 Buick Riviera
In 1982 this car was given by GM to the owner of the dealership that sold the most Buick's to that year. Unfortunately he died in a car accident before taking possession if this car. My husband bought it because it was an exceptional Candy Apple Red, Red interior, with a white convertible top beautiful car. He enjoyed driving it for a few years when he decided to bring it to Florida were he had a winter home and leave it garage kept there. It was only driven a couple weeks a year for several years before he and his former wife divorced. At that point she moved permanently to Florida and he had the car transported back to Illinois were he garage kept it. One day on a whim he decided to have the car painted in honor of his favorite team. So in honor of the Alabama Crimson Tide he had the car painted Crimson. Than in 2007 he decided to restore it to its original color. The fellow who was an award winning car painter convinced my husband to restore the whole car from the bottom up, even though there was only 28,000 miles on the engine and there wasn't anything not working on it. So that's what he did. It looks showroom new and you can eat off the engine and even the bottom of the car. The fellow who restored it said I should ask $30,000. Since then it's been treated like Royalty. Never gets wet except for being detailed twice a year. Only has 10,900 miles on it. I drove it from Charlotte NC to Savannah GA just a few months ago. The ride was great. . I want to find someone who will love this car as much as my husband and I have.
