I have always been fascinated by how old cars are brought to new glamor by specialists and have always had such respect and admiration for such people. My dream was to be like that too! One day, a friend came back from the States and he told me about a car meet that he had attended in Las Vegas. When I saw his photos, I instantly fell in love with a midnight blue Buick Riviera built in 1965. I knew this was exactly what I had to own and I started my search. I must emphasize that in Switzerland, where I live, such cars are very rare (as well as in this color)! I was fortunate to find this ’65 Riviera in 2014 being sold by the widow of the 1st owner. In memory of her late husband, she would sell the car only to someone who promised
to respect the car and restored it to its original condition. As an absolute “newbie” in this area, I gave my promise and bought the car at a good price. I was as happy as I had been for many years - I had my first US classic!
Since I own this midnight beauty (I called it "Shnoozie"), I restore it step by step to its original state.
