    clive miles "Change of Heart" Buick Riviera

    posted by Stiff is offline

    Builder: Clive Miles (Paintwork)
    Vehicle Name: Change of Heart
    Year Built: Circa 1982
    Base Model: Buick Riviera Lowrider
    Current Owner: Unknown
    Classification: Custom
    Current Location: Unknown
    Around three years ago I was in touch with Tim, a previous owner's son, who was trying to find out any info regarding the fate of his dad's old Riviera. He seemed to think that it may have had a sad demise as "it had been badly vandalized, stripped and was rotted badly. I am pretty sure it was bought for breaking by some bloke in Cambridgeshire."
    To add to this, the DVLA vehicle enquiry service brought up a blank. But... "the registration JFD 45D, when we owned it the registration wasnt recognized even back then. I am not sure of the details exactly as I was just a boy then but I know that that registration came up as belonging to an agricultural tractor when we applied for the logbook, the car was "officially" stolen before we had it and therefore the registration may of lapsed and been assigned to the said tractor."
    Another glimmer of hope was that an NSRA member seemed to recall it going to a different country but couldn't recall which one.
    I still have Tim's e-mail address to forward on any up to date news. If anyone has any information regarding this beautiful old lowrider it would be much appreciated.
    Here's a few pics of the car when it was featured in Custom Car...

    Is Clive's other Riviera, the "Boulevard Blue" 1971 boat-tail, still around? Is it on here somewhere?

    I like this car but I think the later one is even nicer.

    Hey Stiff!! You are still searching for me, good man! I just stumbled across this post and decided to join up. I have one picture from back in 1990/91 which shows "change of heart" as we found her. She was just about to be broken up for parts by Paul from L.A Cars in Lincoln. It isnt much of a pic but it gives you some idea of the state she was in. I see there is still no information on her which is very dissapointing, I posted on the retro rides site as Clive Miles surfaced on there. I have more pics but not to hand.




    Hopefully there will be a picture just about.....

    Happy New Year
