YOU ARE VIEWING A 1980 BUICK RIVIERA TWO DOOR COUPE, BLUE WITH OYSTER LEATHER AND PAINTED PINSTRIPE. THIS RIVIERA HAS 58,199 MILES, I HAVE THE TITLE TO PROVE THIS. THIS CAR IS POWERED BY ITS ORIGINAL NUMBERS MATCHING 350R GAS FOUR BARREL NON- FUEL INJECTED ENGINE, (THE 350R ENGINE IS RARE INDEED, MOST CAME WITH THE 305 GAS ENGINE). THIS ENGINE I MUST SAY IS WHISPER QUIET. I JUST INSTALLED A DATE CODED FACTORY SET OF DELCORE PACKARD IGNITION WIRES TO REPLACE ITS ORIGINAL ONES. ALL OF THE WIRE SEPARATORS ARE PRESENT TO KEEP THE WIRES OFF THE ENGINE. THE FACTORY HOSE LOOMS (GM ZIP TIES) ARE ALL PRESENT. MOST OF THE HOSES ARE ORIGINAL, ALONG WITH THE ORIGINAL T -CLAMPS. THERE IS A BRAND NEW DELCO BATTERY, THE HOOD PAD IS ALSO BRAND NEW. THE CAR HAS ICE COLD A/C. THIS RIVIERA'S TRANSMISSION IS ORIGINAL, AND SHIFTS THROUGH ALL OF THE GEARS PERFECTLY WITHOUT HESITATION. THERE ARE NO DRIPS, NO LEAKS, NO WEIRD SQUEALS, PERIOD. THIS CAR IS LIKE DRIVING A NEW ONE, I HAVEN'T SEEN ONE THIS CLEAN IN YEARS, NOR HAVE I EVER OWNED ONE THIS CLEAN. IT HAS THE ORIGINAL GM FULL FACTORY MATS (FRONT AND BACK) WITHOUT ANY WEAR ON THEM AT ALL... AMAZING... ALL OF THE OPTIONS WORK EXCEPT THE CLOCK AND ANTENNA, WHICH CAN BE HAD HERE ON EBAY VERY INEXPENSIVELY. THE INTERIOR IS PERFECT, CRACK FREE, NO STRESS ON THE ORIGINAL LEATHER AT ALL. THE DASH IS PERFECT, ALONG WITH THE CARPET AND THE HEADLINER IS ALSO WITHOUT FLAW. I HAVE THE ORIGINAL BROADCAST SHEET (BUILD SHEET, SEE PICTURES) FOR WHEN MY UNCLE PURCHASED THIS NEW, THE CAR WAS REPAINTED BY BUICK, WHEN IT WAS NEW, DUE TO A DEFECT IN THE FINISH, THE PAINT IS ABOUT AS CLOSE TO FLAWLESS AS YOU CAN GET WITH NO RUST, OR SCRATCHES THAT I CAN SEE. THIS CAR LOOKS BETTER THAN THE PICTURES IF YOU CAN BELIEVE THAT. IT SPORTS THE CORRECT WIDTH WHITEWALLS, ALL FOUR ARE LIKE NEW. THIS IS A SHOW CAR, BUT THAT IS MY OPINION, I DOUBT THERE IS ONE AS CLEAN AS THIS, IF YOU WANT A CAR FROM THE EARLY EIGHTIES THAT RUNS AND DRIVES LIKE NEW THEN THIS IS IT. YOU MAY TAKE THIS CAR TO THE MECHANIC OF YOUR CHOICE (WITHIN 15 MILES OF MY HOME) BEFORE THE AUCTIONS END, NOT AFTER. I WILL MAKE MYSELF AVAILABLE TO ANY CARRIER YOU MAY CHOOSE TO USE, IN THE EVENT OF A MOBILE TRANSPORT. THAT WOULD BE FUNDED AT YOUR EXPENSE. I REQUIRE PAYMENT WITHIN SEVEN BUSINESS DAYS, THIS IS TRULY A ONCE IN A LIFETIME FIND, I AM NOT A MECHANIC AND EVERYTHING EXPRESSED HERE IS MY OPINION. IF YOU ARE LOOKING FOR A CHANCE TO BUY A BEAUTIFUL RIVIERA ,THEN LOOK NO FURTHER , THIS IS YOUR CAR. THANKS FOR LOOKING!

The Consumer Reports Annual Auto Reliability Survey (right) is out, and the top two spots look much the same as last year's list with Lexus and Toyota in first and second place, respectively. However, there are some major shakeups for 2014, with Acura plunging eight spots from third in 2013 to 11th this year, and Mazda replaces it on the lowest step of the podium. Honda and Audi round out the top five. This year's list includes six Japanese brands in the top 10, two Europeans, one America and one Korean.

Acura isn't the only one taking a tumble, though. Infiniti is the biggest loser this year by dropping 14 spots to 20th place. Other big losses come from Mercedes-Benz with an 11-place fall to 24th, and GMC, which declines 10 positions to 19th.
Perhaps unsurprisingly, it's not traditional mechanical bugs hauling down these automaker's reliability scores. Instead, pesky problems with infotainment systems are taking a series toll on the rankings. According to Consumer Reports, complaints about "in-car electronics" were the most grumbled about element in new cars. Problem areas included things like unresponsive touchscreens, issues pairing phones and multi-use controllers that refused to work right.
In May of 1903, Buick began work on its first vehicle, the 1904 Model B, the first example of which was sold to a doctor in Flint, Michigan. That first sale was appropriate since later on, Buick became known as a "doctor's car." The Model B is the first of 11 cars chosen by Buick to highlight each decade of the company's 110-year history.

The 1916 D-45 Touring with a six-cylinder engine was Buick's highest seller that year, and helped push overall sales past six figures for the first time, making Buick the top-selling automotive brand. In 1931, Series 50 got an eight-cylinder engine, which helped the company survive the Great Depression. The 1936 Century was the first Buick that could hit 100 miles per hour, the 1949 Roadmaster had a supporting role in Rain Man, the 1953 Skylark had Italian wire wheels and the owner's name engraved on its steering wheel.
Then we have the iconic 1963 Riviera, the V6-powered 1975 Regal, and in 1987, the legendary GNX. With a turbocharged, intercooled V6 pumping out 276-horsepower it could hit 60 mph in just 4.6 seconds. In 1999 Buick built the first car in China, the Century, and that country remains the brand's largest market.
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.
