Not this crowd's usual deal but here it goes. I'm selling my 1998 Riviera.  It's a great car, but it sees little use, and with the cost of insurance here there`s no point in keeping. I've put 25k miles on it since I bought it in 2005.  I stored it every winter except 2012, and it's spent about 2 years in storage on top of that during that time.  I've had it rustproofed every year since 05, even though I don't drive it in the winter.  This car has no rust.


Emerald green pearl on light autumn green leather. 89000 km (about 56000 miles). Bought it from an 83 y/o man who lost his licence after a stroke. Added some mods.

-3.4" supercharger pulley
-VS camshaft.  Very mild.
-Home made 4" Cold air intake with 9" k&n filter (have original airbox)
-SLP copy headers, 321 SS
-Ported gen 3 M90 blower casing
-Addco swaybars
-autolite 104 spark plugs (2 ranges colder)
-304 SS Corsa exhaust
-180 deg. thermostat
-Auxiliary Trans cooler
-Seville STS strut tower brace
-Larger supercharger tensionner pulley
-F-body front brakes

When I did the cam, I made sure to do all the wear items (pulleys, all gaskets including Al LIM gasket, timing chain and tensionner, etc) so you should be good basically for ever.

DHP powrtuner available with the car, as well as a pulley puller.

Car is easy to re-import back to the USA as it originally was from the USA. No duty, no hassle.

The only bad thing: It has a scratch the length of a hand on the front of the hood. The car got vandalized a while back, but the scratch only damaged the clearcoat.  Apparently, there's some commercial Meguiar's compound available to professionals in the USA that could fix it but I've never tried it.  A car bra would hide it as well.

No disappointments

I'd like to get $6000 for it.

PM me for my phone number








Fairly low wear on DS seat, in line with mileage.  I put leather conditioner on twice a year every year.

F-body Caliper

Steering wheel has barely any wear

The bad:
scratch on clear coat;
short missing segment of pin-stripe on DS fender
typical hazy cornering lenses.  I had polished them with headlight restorer and they looked good for maybe a year before turning hazy again.

Photos taken this fall show Nov 4 2013 and have aluminium 12-spoke wheels and winter tires.  That's what is on the car now.  You can also see it needs to have bottom door panels clay-barred as they have little white spots.  For some reason, both Riviera's we've had have been more prone to collecting particles there than any other car we've owned.  That specific area (right above the lower grey plastic) needs to be clay-barred fairly frequently.  I usually do it in the Spring and Fall but didn't have time when I moved last summer.  On the white Riviera the specs would turn rust-coloured.

I'm taking some leave to drive the car to BC in the 1st week of June. The car is currently IVO Montreal/Ottawa area. Alternatively, if anyone on this forum is legitimately interested in the car, I can drive it over to you if you pay for my airfare back to BC. Saves you the hassle of arranging delivery or flying up to Canada, dealing with customs, etc. You will still need to go through a Port of Entry in your area, but the rest of the sale will be as per buying a car from your state.

I know most of the crowd here is the RWD land yacht type, but these Rivs are one of the best FWD cars I have ever driven. My 97 has been set aside as my winter car and it's absolutely fantastic in the snow. Looks like you put a lot of work into yours, GLWS.

Can attest to the condition of this car. Truly is a great example. Not necessarily my cup of tea but Jason takes incredible care of his cars.

The car is on the West Coast now, and up to 96k km (60k mi). Drove great on the trip West.

New AC compressor, rear discs and rotors. I was quite happy to have the AC in MOAB.

If anyone on the West Coast is interested, pm me.
