Random Car Wednesday: 1963 Buick Riviera

Welcome to yet another rendition of RCW on Shifting Gears. This time around the featured car is a classic American icon, the Buick Riviera. In stock form the Riviera is fantastic and utterly beautiful, one of GM's greatest hits. They're also popular cars to modify into lowriders or customs. I found this 1964 model particularly interesting. The wheels are alright, but not anything truly special. The paint, though, is what grabbed me. It had never occurred to me how well this design lends itself to a two-tone paint job. It looks absolutely marvelous, and the color selection is spot-on. The pure white is set nicely against the metallic red for a great contrast. In conclusion, it's a great take on a great car.
