If you fancy a closer look at this 1970 Buick Riviera – shot in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia just FYI – we recommend that you don’t stand too close to the front grille. That is unless you’re an advocate for extreme acupuncture.
One of the distinctive traits of this particular model, aside from the skirted rear wheels, the quad headlights and the sizeable 370hp 7.5l V8 that finally put its ‘Nailhead’ predecessor to bed was the design of the barbs on the front grille. Gone was the crosshatch pattern that had adorned the previous model in favour of slim, vertical bars.
All together now. Ouch!
