    I already said that, but that's a perfect Riviera! GM's design dept should hire you ASAP!

    on the Grand Sport, did the rear window come from a C2 Vette? Why not throw the Split Window in, lol Looks really good except for the rear window. IMO

    How about that?



    The Boattail Riviera is THE Riviera. This rear windscreen is the perfect element to lift from Buick's heritage as-is.

    The Gran-Sport is Hot.

    @ctaylorzl1: A lot of ppl complained about poor visibility with the split back window while it was in production. (I know this from TV, not because I was there!)

    It really is, I love it. They seriously need to build something like that, it'd be the perfect Buick.

    Besides looking great and helping the car stand out, this window also provides superb rear visibility in a body like that. Try to see something in the rearview mirror in a car with split rear windscreen (a Corvette and not Riviera feature, btw).

    You did an absolutely wonderful job on all of your chops. I envy your skills! I do believe that my favorite of yours so far is the Buick "boat-tail" design, however, your buick van comes in at a close second!
