Plenty of people don’t like the boattail Riviera one bit. I am not one of those people – I think it’s an awesome car, with just enough throwback design elements, but not so many to turn it into a garish exercise in rose-colored glasses nostalgia. I’m sure plenty of people will also not like the custom touches given this particular 1972 Buick Riviera GS. I am also not one of those people – I appreciate how the customizer left its essential design alone and added/subtracted just the right number of items to enhance the boattail’s shape and at the same time modernize it. From the seller’s description:
