  1. Anyone know where I might be able to get a crown moulding and nameplate for my '95?

    Larry....just emailed you about pin-striping.....I posted regarding this on the performance site.
  2. What other (much newer) cars do you have and drive?

    Hate the front grilles on them though...but thanks. I'd gladly consider Lexus or Audi but I'm just so turned off by the exterior (front) appearance. I'm intrigued by EV too - or at least hybrid.
  3. What other (much newer) cars do you have and drive?

    Guess I don't have to even get your thoughts on the new Regals. Someone on one of the car forums suggested that to me as a replacement for the Riviera. Nice enough looking but...again...they look so much like lots of other cars. If I get a small enough new car, all 3 vehicles can go in the...
  4. What other (much newer) cars do you have and drive?

    I'm beginning to think along these same lines. I particularly dislike the grilles on many of the new cars. Lexus, Audi, some Toyotas, etc. I really hate to give up the garage space but might wind up keeping it as you suggest.
  5. What other (much newer) cars do you have and drive?

    I'm curious....for those who are still ONLY driving 20th century cars - like myself with the 95 - what do you have? I'd really like to get something new that has more modern safety / tech features but haven't found something that I'm sold on yet. The floating, cushy ride of these older cars...
  6. Anyone know where I might be able to get a crown moulding and nameplate for my '95?

    I emailed. Interesting that you have a 98. What is the difference between the last two production years compared to the 95? Exterior looks identical.
  7. Anyone know where I might be able to get a crown moulding and nameplate for my '95?

    Larry...how do you post pictures over on that performance site? I tried it but then it seemed to send the pics to a 'servimg' link. I posted something on both 'interior' and 'parts needed' sections of the website.
  8. Anyone know where I might be able to get a crown moulding and nameplate for my '95?

    Larry, that service manual link sent me to partsgeek.com (?) I don't see a service manual there. I talked to the shop again. They're really great to work with so I'm sure we can manage all this. All this is part of an insurance claim so I hate to mess around too much with it myself. Is the...
  9. Anyone know where I might be able to get a crown moulding and nameplate for my '95?

    Larry...thanks so much. What's the original source of this? It is something I could share with the body shop.
  10. Anyone know where I might be able to get a crown moulding and nameplate for my '95?

    Thanks for further replies. I also assumed that this emblem can be carefully removed and reused, so not sure why this seems to be such a hang-up for the body shop. Their recent reply to me was that it's "doubled sided taped on" and that there is "no salvaging it". I agree with this if it breaks...
  11. Anyone know where I might be able to get a crown moulding and nameplate for my '95?

    Mels.....Thanks. I tried but unfortunately nothing shows up for either the emblem or molding.
  12. Anyone know where I might be able to get a crown moulding and nameplate for my '95?

    My '95 was in a bit of a fender bender the other day . Not extensive damage, and all repairable but a potential issue - as it appears - is that I'm told the crown moulding (left rear) is not available nor the nameplate - which I'm told has to come off to repair damage to the left quarter panel...
  13. pretty sure I need to change battery on my 95 - any suggestions?

    Yeah...I don't think I'll even bother with charging. Not sure how easy it'll come out, but our local auto parts store has these batteries. Will probably take it there tomorrow.
  14. pretty sure I need to change battery on my 95 - any suggestions?

    I've never done it. Car ran fine yesterday, won't start today. All the lights are dim, etc. Don't recall leaving the door open so perhaps it just went dead. Been changed twice but always at the garage. It's a vented battery (under the rear seat) and so there is a tube running across it that...
  15. 1995 Buick Riviera - New to me quick questions and pictures!

    Indeed they are. My '95 has a bit over 165k BUT is on its 3rd engine. Original engine flooded when the plastic manifold gave out (there was a bit of a history of this I believe). Jasper replacement engine threw a rod right through the block (THAT was quite a thrill). So now the 3rd engine is...
