Buick Riviera 1963

David Gartman, Auto Opium, A Social History of American Automobile Design, Routledge, 1994


I have to say, the styling of this car always appealed to me, even without knowing all that "designspeak"...

I'd like a '71 Boattail Riviera. I wouldn't drive it, just curl up inside and
suck my thumb, and occasionally come out to look at it. Auto Opium.

Me too. I’d park it right next to the ‘66 Toronado.

The "sharp-edged styling of classic cars"? What are they talking about.

More like, "NOT designed in a wind tunnel!"
