Photo of the Day, Part Deux: An American Beauty

This 1963 Buick Riviera is the exact car one of my lead characters in my novel CLOG! has a serious accident on a mountain and changes the direction of the book. I hadn't seen one of these beauties in years until a little while ago on Roanoke City Market, but when it came time to put the character in question in the right car, nothing else was considered. I think this is one of the prettiest cars ever designed in America. Simple, elegant and just gorgeous.

  1. I always thought the 72 & 73 "boat tails" were pretty cool. Of the big sleds, I was also partial to the early (66-70) Olds Toronados. Later on they both started to look pretty mundane, i.e., "old lady cars".
