    Rob, I couldn't vote anything else than the original color... love it... For the 75 Riv I have uploaded a link on my 75 RivGS page where you can see a part of the Buick dealer promo movie. I only know of one guy with almost the same combination of Rivieras: a 73 and a 76. In august I'm organising a Riviera meeting here in The Netherlands again... From the 2006 meeting with over 40 Rivieras you'll find some footage on youtube. The photos of the Estate Wagon are from last october...it is now in its winter garage... more photos will be added in spring...I have a 75 Riviera parts car here with sandstone interior...so when you need something...
