Everything in here is under your control

Photo upload is set up for 3 pictures, 1 to make a trim slide, 1 (will also use others you email me also) for me to make your interior slide, 1 for body trim plate. These will auto name and insert photo into to your page, We will then take them from there to make into slides.

Gallery Upload - requires Java - the upload manager allows you to add pictures to your galeries, rename, delete, create, your folders etc.


We have built comprehensive lists of options for each year boattail – with the help of Yahoo Boattail Group, members of the Riviera Owners Association and co-operation of Buick- Riviera .com - please visit their links on top of the page.

These lists are part of the automated input and masters will posted for download once we get complete pricing info for 72s. The input windows have space to write some stories/ antidotes as well as a large area for the history of your car plus what's planned or you wish to do.

Contact to you and previous owners if you supply this info, is on secure pages and the Public Registry Page this is done by a "request contact" link that protects your email address - until you decide to respond or not -- this is great if you are selling your car or people just want ask you questions,(looking at adding a members only comments section for each car,administered by the car owner, tell me what you thinkz)

You can put For Sale /Contact info in the Public Registry along with your website, if you so desire. You may enter info into The Public Registry without a member account or access to secure pages if so wish - this is mainly for salvage yards (or your next trip to one) and dealers and sellers who do not wish to signup - but want to let us know about the rivs they have (or have had).

A valid VIN and email is required - and all entrys must wait for a review and approval before info is posted.

Your pictures will also be used to build picture links to color and trim charts - option lists etc and displayed in the public galleries - along with your name, state, country and any info you wish added(within the space available) just let us when sending them in, or tell us not too post in public galleries if you just want a private account in the members only area
