Old Cars Reader Wheels: 1985 Buick Riviera turbo convertible

Old Cars spotlights a reader’s 1985 Buick Riviera turbo convertible.

Vincent Spampinato is riding in style in his turbo motivated ’85 Riviera. This is what Vincent has to say about his Buick….

"This is one of 49 made in '85 with the turbo engine. The standard was a 5.0 L V8 with 140 net hp. The turbo engine was an optional 3.8L V-6 with 200 net hp. It was $735 extra, which explains the low production numbers. It drives beautifully, and it's a cinch we'll never see cars like this again!"
