Heres my new junker! Its a beat to crap 87 Buick Riviera T-type. I got this from one of my co-workers for $75, it has been rotting behind my work for 2 year now and shows it. The car doesnt start right now, but Im told it did start when it was parked. Someone smashed the windshield and grille out at some point too. The car leaks like crazy and smells like a toilet. Its really too bad, this car has the touch screen CRT system which is just plain cool. The car has every option except for keyless entry. I would love to drive this car, but unfortunatly its too far gone. It has the same 3.8l V6 as my lesabre and I plan to just pull that and scrap the rest. This is definitly one of the most overlooked 80's cars and probably the most advanced from that time.

The E-body coupes were converted to unibody construction and further
downsized for 1986, to a 108 in (2,700 mm) wheelbase shared with the Buick
Regal. The V6 was now the only engine, rated initially at 142 hp (106 kW)
SAE and 200 lb·ft (270 N·m) of torque. It used the turbo-Hydramatic 440-T4 automatic with a 2.84:1
final drive ratio. This generation was noted for advanced electronic
instrumentation, including the first automotive touchscreen controls, which
were on a dash-mounted 9-inch (230 mm) CRT display. Four-wheel disc brakes
were standard. With a choice of three suspension packages available, up to
the performance oriented FE3 setting, handling was notably improved. The
Riviera placed fourth for Motor Trend's 1986 Car of the Year contest.
Fuel economy was notably improved for the 1986 Riviera, but the substantial
investment in the downsized, transverse engine front wheel drive platform
resulted in a substantial price increase, to $19,831 to the base model and
$21,577 for the new T-Type. Downsizing also resulted in a dimensional
similarity to smaller, less expensive offerings from GM, with shared
styling cues reinforcing the unfortunate resemblance.
1989-1993 Buick Riviera
The smaller dimensions, generic styling, and lack of V8 power soured
buyers, and sales plummeted to 22,138 for 1986, only 15,223 for 1987, and a
dismal 8,625 for 1988. A restyle for 1989 that added 11 inches (280 mm) to
the overall length (on an unchanged wheelbase) helped, but only
incrementally, Boosting sales to
21,189 for 1989, but dropping to a low of 4,555 for 1993, the shortened
final year of that model. The last 1993 Riviera rolled off the
Detroit/Hamtramck Assembly plant line on December 10, 1992.
Sales in the personal luxury coupe segment were in decline from 1986
onward, although it is unclear whether the general market trend was
initiated by the poor public reception of GM's newly downsized offerings or
an inevitable shift in the tastes of the buying public.

1988 Buick Reatta Walk around
Another one of my odd GM vehicles. This one is a Buick Reatta 2 seater
hard top. Features a CRT touch screen system (same as the one found in the
old Rivieras) that controls the climate control, radio, diagnostics and
several other features. This is one of those cars you don't see every day!

The 87 Riviera part 2
We replaced the cam sensor on it and it seemed to do nothing. I found out
during the week that the coil we were testing for spark on was actually
bad. I replaced it with one I had laying around from the repair of my 87
lesabre and it has spark on all 6 cylinders, but now it look like the fuel
pump is shot.

New project: 1997 Buick Riviera Supercharged
PIcked this one up off Craigslist for $400 plus $50 to deliver it. Car
runs and drives but has what sounds like rod knock. I still need to to
some diagnostic work, but that's what it sounds like to me, and the guy I
bought it from was a mechanic and thinks the same. The car is fully loaded
with what looks to be every option offered right down the traction control
and engine block heater. The car has just under 100k on it and it in
excellent shape in and out. The car has been sitting for a year or so and
looks it, but it will get washed when it gets warmer.

Bad-Ass Buick: 1955 Special - /BIG MUSCLE
• Harry Fisher
In stock form, the 1955 Buick Special could best be described as a "nice"
car. It's not drop dead gorgeous like a 1959 Impala, nor does it have the
panache of say a 1956 Chrysler 300. You see the '55 Buick Special was a
working mans car. It had room enough for the whole family, a decent
power-plant thanks to its 264 cubic inch V8, and style that was, well...
above average. Harry Fisher or "Uncle Harry" as most people know him, saw
the old Buick a bit differently though. He knew that with a few little
touches (like a 502 cubic inch big-block, modern suspension, and a new set
of wheels) that this old Buick had the potential to become one of the
baddest hot-rods around.
