This will be for all Rivi pics. 1/1 scale , models, projescts, ect...The Riv has to be one of the best cars GM made . You have performance and luxury. I esspecially like the 63-65 body.

Here's a few I'm working on in both scales 1/25 and 1/1 scale


The new Zeniths for it.

model of the real one.



Had Steve Standford do a rendering for me. The tail lights and exaust will be differnet from the rendering.

Wow, nice Rivi Truscale and a rendering by Steve Stanford, that's nice too. Here's a Rivi that belongs to my friend Pablo. He just busted it out again after a complete rehab that took over ten years. This car's been around the San Diego Lowriding scene since the 1970's and it's had 5 or 6 owners since then. Each one has done something different to the car from custom mods to paint to interior. The car's always been known for it's custom grill and that has never changed. I've always liked the Rivi models, I got em all from 63-69. Keep us posted on your build up in both scales.

It's funny, the Riviera is one of my favorite cars of all time, yet I have never built one. I guess I am afraid i will fuck it up. I would hate myself if I built one of the most beautiful cars of all time, and didn't get it right.

I am still hoping that one day, someone will do a Boattail Riviera in styrene, but I'm not holding my breath.

Anyway, here's a few Riviera pics from my Photobucket,

How many of you guy's knew that the 1963 Riviera was Originally designed as a Cadillac, yup that's right a cadillac. The 1963 Buick Riviera was GM's first real response to the Ford Thunderbird, and brought new attention to Buick Division, which needed something at the time to bring people into its showrooms.
