1972 Buick Riviera, Adam Pearce
Our heat-winning car appeared in Classic American in February 2021 (issue 358) and was in fact the cover car. Owner Adam Pearce cut his American car-owning teeth with this bodacious Buick and hasn’t looked back since. “I just love driving it!” he enthuses. As befits Buick’s top-of-the-tree model, it’s dripping with all the bells and whistles Flint could shoe-horn into their flagship. Power comes from a four-barrel 455cu in V8 and of course there’s power-steering and -brakes, as well as air con. That dazzling Burnished Bronze paint sure looks a treat!
