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....

Well, all good things must come to an end. For 2015, the Buick Verano's experiment with a manual transmission will cease, as the American manufacturer has announced it will discontinue the 6MT in the turbocharged version of its compact sedan. According to Buick, the take rate on the Verano Turbo 6MT was (unsurprisingly) low, leading to its discontinuation.
That's not the only bit of news for the Verano, though. After a few years on the market, Buick has seen fit to refresh the popular sedan. The visual changes aren't huge, really, with subtle tweaks to the headlights and taillights. We'd bargain that the average passer-by wouldn't notice a difference between the two.
The main aesthetic change is a new appearance package, available on the mid-range Convenience and Leather option groups. Unimaginatively called just that - Appearance Package - it offers up a new paint color, Desert Dusk Metallic, as well as a grille treatment and a rear spoiler. The new package is, however, limited to naturally aspirated models.
Buick may not be the first name that comes to mind when you think of performance automobiles, but fans of the brand know what letters to look for. If you believe the reports, there's a new GNX and Grand National on the way, but in the meantime, Buick may offer more GS models to fill the void.
Currently, the Regal is the only model available as a GS (pictured above), packing the same 259-horsepower turbo four as the Regal Turbo but enhanced with key suspension, brakes and rolling-stock upgrades. As Car and Driver notes, similar upgrades could easily be applied to the Verano and LaCrosse, although maybe not the Encore or Enclave crossovers. Of course, Buick would still have to steer clear of Cadillac's Vsport line, but that doesn't mean it doesn't have a little room to play.
At this point, Bob Seger feels like the living embodiment of old-school rock 'n' roll. The Michigan native has been strumming out classic records like Night Moves for decades, and he just released a new single called Detroit Made. It sounds like a future staple of just about every classic car show within the next few years, and the video is dedicated to the Motor City, past and future.
Detroit Made is all about cruising in the city in a classic Buick Electra 225, perhaps better known as a "deuce and a quarter." It's straight-down-the-middle rock and could just as easily be from a decades-old Seger album as something new.
The video for the new single mixes shots of American classics cruising along Woodward Avenue with a contemporary look at the city. Sure, there are the well-known dilapidated buildings falling into rubble, but the people there aren't just letting the city die. Other parts show the attempts to clean things up and rebuild. Check out the video if you need a few minutes of old school rockin' in your life.
