You are bidding on our 1998 Buick Riviera Supercharged model, with only an amazing 79,000 miles. This Riviera is a gold/tan with perfect tan leather seats, factory mats still in place with no wear... ie no heel marks. There are no funny smells, no leaks, no drivability issues at all. It shifts perfectly and goes down the road effortlessly. It has pretty much every conceivable option, including a perfectly running sunroof/moon roof, heated seats on both sides, tilt wheel, cruise control, cd player and ice cold a/c. There are no cracks in the dash at all, the leather is still supple, with no cracking or rips. This riviera has trac control, a factory supercharged engine that is original to the car, in fact everything is original including the paint which is perfect with no rust, although the passengers fender is slightly dull for some reason but that is barely noticeable. This car has a factory pinstripe, and has never been in an accident, this car has spent its entire life garaged, free from the elements. The like new tires are firestones, (they have approx. 8,000 miles on them) with the factory Buick rims, and all of their original center caps and no curb rash at all. The brakes are good, along with the complete stock exhaust. The only function that we know of that doesn't work is the power antenna, which can be had right here on ebay very inexpensively. This is truly a Buick you would be proud to own, you are welcome to take this car to the mechanic of your choice within 15 miles of my home before auctions end, NOT AFTER. If the car is to be transported I will make myself available to the delivery truck driver, but the transportation expense and arrangements are your responsibility. I would require payment within seven days of the auctions end. Thanks for looking, good luck and happy bidding!

European Concerns Drive GM, But Beware Of The French Connection
Sun, 21 Apr 2013 17:58:00 EST
GM's bid to rationalize Europe will impact the products that will be offered domestically.
It seems that Europe is defining the future of General Motors more so than its home North American market. Having axed Saturn, Pontiac and Hummer, GM has done a fairly good job of repositioning its remaining four divisions, Cadillac, Chevrolet, Buick and GMC. Cadillac carries the luxury banner. Chevrolet is aimed at the masses with cars and trucks along with a nod to performance thanks to Camaro and Corvette. Buick bridges the premium gap between Chevy and Cadillac, while GMC offers a hardcore work/upscale proposition.
Buick has taken the time to highlight some of the company's personal points of pride from the past 110 years. Those include everything from the automaker's very first vehicle, the 1904 Model B, to what Buick claims is the world's first concept car: The 1938 Y Job (above). That one also walked away with the worst name for a design study.

All told, the automaker has sold 43 million vehicles through the end of last year, and those include the lusty 1963 Riviera. That model celebrates its 50th anniversary in 2013, and remains one of the brand's most iconic designs.
Of course, Buick is rightfully proud of its quickest model, too. The 1987 GNX managed a 4.6-second bolt to 60 mph in tests by Car and Driver, and it also took the honor of being one of the automaker's rarest creations at just 547 units. You can check out all 10 in the gallery above.
The Buick Regal is based on the Opel/Vauxhall Insignia, a pair of sedans from General Motors' European and British outfits. In fact, over 46,000 Regals from model years 2010 and 2011 were screwed together on the same lines as the Insignia twins, before GM's Oshawa, Ontario factory took over production fully. Considering this closeness, rumors that claim the next-generation Regal - due for 2017 - could move back to Europe aren't terribly surprising. Here's why, according to Automotive News.
Oshawa is home to three other vehicles, aside from the Regal - the Chevrolet Camaro, Impala rental queen and the Cadillac XTS. We already know next-gen Camaro production is headed to Lansing, MI, and that the fleet-only Impala will (finally!) die in 2016. As for the XTS, as AN explains it, sales are so slow that GM will either kill it or just shuffle its production volume elsewhere.
Taken along with the fact that Unifor, the Canadian labor union repping workers at the Oshawa factory, claim GM hasn't made any guarantees about future production at the nearly 60-year-old factory, it seems fairly clear that the Regal's current factory is going to be put out to pasture.
