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 options sheet of the 2014 Buick LaCrosse gets all kinds of fancy with the addition of the Ultra Luxury Interior. Pointing its Tri-Shield logo at the world of haute luxury, the cabin treatment combines sangria leather with ebony accents, shadow tamo ash wood trim and a microsuede headliner to "drive fashion forward."

You'll need to start with LaCrosse models with the 3.6-liter V6 and either the Leather, Premium or Premium II trims to go all Brioni and Buckingham on the cabin, and the privilege package will run you $2,495. We're told that you won't find such contrasting hues anywhere else in the class, though, and that kind of exclusivity might make any price a bargain.
You can find more information on the Ultra Luxury Interior in the press release below, along with some intensely fashion-foward gobbledygook.
With its first full year of sales in the bag, it's safe to say that Buick has a hit on its hands with the Encore. US buyers have snatched up 31,046 of the small, premium crossovers since the Encore went on sale in January of 2013, while 97,311 were sold globally (not counting its counterparts from Opel and Vauxhall).

While we liked the Encore when we first drove it, we'll admit, we weren't sure how the tiny CUV would do. In fact, the first thing Executive Editor Chris Paukert wrote about the Encore was, "We admit it. We have no earthly idea how this whole thing is going to shake out." But it's done well, and has been subject to heavy demand over the past year, blowing away the estimates of analysts, who, according to an August story from Automotive News, projected no more than 18,500 units would be sold in 2013.
"Right out of the gate, demand for the Encore was high," Tony DiSalle, vice president of Buick marketing said in a statement. "It accounted for most of the segment's growth last year and that's because it offers the right safety, technology and features in the right-sized vehicle for many customers."
The Tucker Torpedo is one of the great what-if stories of automotive history. Preston Tucker hoped to revolutionize the industry with a car unlike any other on the road at the time. However, due to a variety of problems, he only managed build 51 vehicles before closing shop. Over time, they have become highly sought-after; In 2012, one sold for $2.65 million at auction.
That brings us to this Tucker "replica" that you see above because it might be one of the ugliest monstrosities ever put together. However, we might extend some leniency to the creator, as the vehicle isn't actually trying to replicate the classic look of the 1948 Tucker Torpedo. Instead, it is attempting to reproduce an earlier prototype from 1946 that actually features that weird, trident nose. According to the seller, his uncle built the car as a labor of love and supposedly used actual plans from Tucker as inspiration.
Underneath all of the crazy changes is a 1971 Buick Riviera powered by a 455-cubic-inch (7.5-liter) Buick V8. Some of the replica's odder modifications include the front fenders that turn with the wheels and the fin running down the back. All three headlights work, but the one in the middle is only for the high beams. Oddly, the small hinged sections on the roof are meant to open to avoid hitting your head when getting in or out. Maybe the seller's uncle was a very tall guy?
