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!

Bob Lutz sits down for Autoline Detroit - Click above to watch video after the jump
Fri, 04 Jan 2013 11:31:00 EST
Autoline Detroit recently played host to Bob Lutz, and, as is always the case, the former General Motors vice chairman dished out some great commentary. Lutz was promoting his new book Car Guys vs. Bean Counters: The Battle for the Soul of American Business, and talk quickly turned to his role as it related to product development and high-level decision making at GM. While on the topic of brand management, Lutz revealed a few rather interesting tidbits about his former employer:
All Chevrolet vehicles were required to have five-spoke aluminum wheels and a chrome band up front, as part of the Bowtie brand's overall image.
As we continue to put together all the data for the year-end edition of By The Numbers, General Motors has announced that it sold more than a million vehicles in the US last year that achieved at least 30 miles per gallon on the highway. More impressively, GM managed this feat using multiple strategies including small vehicle size, turbocharged engines and hybrid or plug-in technologies across four brands (Buick, Cadillac, Chevrolet and GMC) accounting for 13 separate models. This number will grow even more in 2013 thanks to cars like the all-electric Spark, the diesel Cruze, the range-extended Cadillac ELR and the Buick Encore compact CUV.

GM's small car sales were up 39 percent last year helping to attain this million-sales mark for 30-mpg models, and almost 40 percent of all GM sales consisted of cars with fuel-efficient I4 engines. In regards to more advanced means of improving fuel economy, GM says that it plans on having 500,000 vehicles with "some form of electrification" on the road by 2017.
Scroll down for the full list of GM's million 30+ mpg cars as well as an informative press release.
We've spoken at length previously about the fallacy of poor hatchback sales in the US, and with the runaway success of its Chevrolet Cruze sedan, it's somewhat unsurprising to hear that General Motors is rethinking its decision not to sell an overseas five-door variant in North America as it looks to plug a number of holes in its lineup. GM North American President Mark Reuss admitted during a media luncheon this week that not offering the model "... was a pre-bankruptcy planning mistake," says Forbes. With the next-generation model already well-along in development, it's likely that the current Cruze hatch (shown above) won't see US dealers.
Reuss admits not offering the model "was a pre-bankruptcy planning mistake"
In what must have been a far-reaching conversation, Reuss hinted at a number of new products for many GM brands, including "a much more beautiful Panamera" range-topper for Buick (which sounds a bit like the line of reasoning the TriShield brand has been pursuing with its Riviera concepts) and a "Ford Transit Connect-fighter" to supplant the recently announced badge-engineered Chevy City Express from Nissan.
