Up for auction is a 1965 Buick Riviera. It is a Numbers matching Gran sport. it comes with 85% of the parts to put it together. I started to take it apart to restore it but have lost interest. So I decided to sell it. the car has the 425 nailhead with dual quad intake both of the carbs are rebuilt. it has the bs code trans and posi as well. it has power windows power antenna (but its missing) A/C. The interior is all original. the wood has some weathering to it but for being original its doing good. the door panels themselves are in good shape. It has cloth seats the front have some wear but that's normal but they are not broke down. The back seats just need a good cleaning. The dash board is in great shape with no cracks. the package tray has seen some better days but its there. the carpet is good. It is missing the brake booster and air cleaner. For the body I started repairing the floors the passenger side and back seat areas are done. The drivers side and the inside of the trunk needs to be done but the holes are not bad. Theres a crease in the drivers quarter, both the bottoms of the fenders and a few other small spots need to be repaired you can see in the pics. The hood is fixable its not the best but definitely not the worst. Ive done the best I can to describe it but if you wanna kno anything else about the car please ask. The car is being sold as-is. $500. deposit is due at auction end. Thanks for looking I had to relist the car due to the last guy backing out after he won it....

If you own an Apple iPhone or Android device, perhaps you've been tempted to jailbreak or root it. This process gives you access to the the software's code, and can be used to make minor or drastic changes to its operating system. CarKnow, a company in Boston, is working applying a similar concept to the automobile.
Translogic recently took a look inside CarKnow to see just how it can tweak the computers inside a car and what sort of things can be done. As our transportation tech sister site explains, CarKnow basically created a digital duplicate of their Buick Regal in the cloud, while harvesting data generated to create custom apps and infiltrate the deepest function of their test car.
And before you freak out about people maliciously taking over your car, CarKnow's founder, Josh Siegel, stresses that it isn't quite so easy as driving up alongside someone. Take a look at the full video below to see just what it's like to jailbreak a car.
Buick is launching its new midsize Envision crossover in China at the Chengdu Motor Show, where it will slot between the subcompact Encore and larger Enclave. While it might be hard to muster too much excitement about a Chinese-market crossover, don't completely ignore this one. There's a very good chance it could be on sale in North America to fill the same hole in the brand's lineup over here, possibly as a 2016 model.
We recently spied the Envision completely undisguised as it was arriving at the Chengdu show for its debut. The CUV still looks like a stretched Encore from some front angles, but that isn't necessarily a bad thing. It's got a similar oversized grille, hood vents (presumably faux) and large greenhouse as its little brother. Where the midsize CUV differs is its prominent crease running down the side and the different rear treatment, with wing-shaped trim cutting into the taillights.
The interior looks like a pretty nice place to spend time, too, with a predictable mix of leather, wood and metal, and it should be quiet in there with its active noise cancelation system. Infotainment is provided by an eight-inch touchscreen with a touchpad and voice controls.
Buick is having a hard time keeping up with demand for its all-new Encore mini-CUV, according to a report from Automotive News. The stylish, lifted five-door went on sale in January, but dealers have reported that supplies have dwindled after the initial high demand, taking the proverbial "wind out of the sails."
General Motors admits that it underestimated demand for the diminutive Buick, which is built in Korea and sold as the Opel Mokka in Europe, where it's also seen success. Buick spokesperson Nick Richards told AN, "We increased production, so there have been a lot more landing within the last month."
Buick has done a booming business, though, even with its limited supply of Encores. With over 12,000 units sold in the first half of 2013, the small CUV is on pace to annihilate industry analysts' estimates, which predicted no more than 18,500 units in 2013. We're not entirely surprised. When we first drove the Encore late last year, Autoblog professed that we had no idea how sales would turn out, as the Encore wasn't really entering into an established segment. Even so, wefound a surprising amount to like in the Encore, enough that we "wouldn't bet against it" being a major success.
