I was particularly surprised to see the Riviera as they're rare as hens' teeth down under!


At the major US car meet's, in Denmark, there's usually 2-3 of the '63-'65 Rivieras. Rare, but not as rare, as hens' teeth



Not many made it down under Jesper...

I did have a chuckle yesterday though as I fired up Netflix to watch Rust Valley Restorers and what should they be restoring? Why, a Riviera of course

I have also seen the episode. The riviera's are just classy cars.

Ok folks, mystery time! I found this in a shopping centre car park today. What is it? I'm thinking Buick, but the emblem doesn't come up in any search. Possibly a one-off custom personalised set of badges, but what is the car?

Fratzog, used by Dodge from 1962 to 1976. I thought that grille looked sort of 60s Dodge-ish

1964 Dodge Custom 880. There should have been a "Dodge", on the hood, trunk lid and on both sides, of the rear quarter panels though.
