YAK Car Pic of the Day

75 buick riv blk nf copy

This 1975 Buick Riviera is from the second year into a restyle of the love-it-or-hate-it boattail Riv of 1971-73. Apparently the hate-it faction won out as a much more conservative rear end appeared for 1974. Personally I think the boattail was at least more distinctive (hard to argue with that); losing it made the Riv just another humungous Buick. The one pictured above showed up at a Niagara Falls repair shop a couple of days ago.
