    It definitely has issues, but, as you say, it is only $1000.

    I like these oddball Rivvy's. They are like an UberLeSabre. Up until recently, there was an older man near my neighborhood who had one of those special edition tan/light brown Riv's and it was always in pretty nice shape. Sadly, in the past few months it has disappeared. Hopefully,he's/it's still in good hands

    I should like those year Rivvy's, they are the last RWD versions, but for some reason they just never did anything for me, they didn't have the unique styling of the previous generations, and they are short on HP, for years I just ignored them. You think I would prefer them over the FWD versions that replaced them, but I still don't.
    Not that they are bad cars, I am sure they are just as bullet proof as all the other 77-96 GM B-Bodies.
