    No I mean like reserved as in quiet, well mannered and well behaved and "radical" as in awesome and really cool.

    Reliable is good too, as is regal, royal, et al

    '72 Coupe deVille.


    '57 Chrysler New Yorker Hardtop Coupe, in the exact same color the '57 Windsor Sedan was that my dad had when I was a kid.



    Real nice '72 Chevy truck.


    Is this the same color as the one in Bullitt or was that one black?


    Love the color on this '64 Riviera.


    Real nice '79 LeSabre Limited Coupe. The velour wasn't nearly as soft as that in the '85 Riviera.



    I love late Fox-Body Mustangs.




    89-90 FWD hearse.


    That hearse is truly shocking; I had heard a high percentage of Americans have become obese but I had no idea that they were now building hearses to accommodate this new sized public's need for supersizing their last ride!!

    Oddly enough, this was parked in spectator parking.


    I love the Riviera's hood ornament.

    That '64 Riviera is stunning. And the Bullitt Charger was black with a black vinyl roof.

    I've always liked the Riviera monogram, along with the Riviera script with the big swooping R. The story is the script was inspired by the Riviera resort in Las Vegas. "Riviera" is such a great name for a high-end personal luxury car. It even sounds elegant and classy.

    Actually the name for a Buick model named "Riviera" came into being in 1948 for their newly introduced "hardtop convertible. The "Riviera" casino had not yet been completed (Bugsy was a lousy construction supervisor, so bad in fact that he got himself wacked in West Hollywood in 1949) and had not entered the American consciousness yet.The Riviera was named for that glamorous section of the French Mediterranean coast which still draws the rich and famous today.

    Euro-spec 1981 M-B 500SEC. Owner stated that it was 325hp (DIN) in 1981, but the SEC's we got in '81 were the ~150hp 380SEC's. Weak.



    E30 318i. These are very small in real life.


    I think Rick stopped by for a cameo appearance.



    And there was this..



    And this.. Say what you want about how good of a driver it was, I won't argue that, but man oh man is it homely looking.


    Then the Z8 showed up.


    Love the license plates.


    V10 R8


    Then someone from a dealer brought down an '07 Phantom. This thing is HUUUUUUGE! Makes a 94-96 FWB seem small, or that Mark V I drove earlier.

    That Audi V8 Quattro is cool. And the SEC looks like it's an early AMG product.

    Yeah, but it doesn't start up again until March or April.
