1963 Buick Riviera Sport Coupe (1 of 11)

1963 Buick Riviera Sport Coupe (1 of 11)

UPDATE: I woke up today to the sad news this car, along with nine other classic vehicles (most of which appear in my photostream), were destroyed yesterday (April 3, 2014) when fire consumed the building in Petersburg, Illinois where the vehicles were stored. Fortunately, no one was hurt in the blaze. Our sympathies go to Mike Bell and family.

Photographed at the Culver’s Cruise in Springfield, Illinois on July 28, 2013. This monthly (May through September) event is sponsored by the Central Illinois Region of the Antique Automobile Club of America.

Please visit my collection of Motor Vehicles on Flickr where you will find over 10,000 car and truck photos organized in albums by model year, manufacturer, vehicle type, and more. This project, which began in 2008, continues to expand with new material added daily.
