1980 Buick Riviera Dealer Demonstration

This is form a 1979 promotional LaserDisc that I found it is for 1980 model year Buick's. In 1978 GM contracted with Pioneer and MCA/DiscoVision to put the Pioneer PR-7800 LaserDisc player into its dealerships, the discs where to be used for demonstrations as in this disc or for training purposes. Now in the early days of laserDisc manufacture there was a very high failure rate, sometimes as high as 85% during the mastering/pressing process, so that left a lot of sides of discs that where unusable. Well these where used to fill the blank side of a disc, the "dead" side was then coated with a special plastic that was clear to the human eye, but it would not reflect the laser beam, thus the side would not play. Well the coating can be removed with rubbing alcohol, which is what I did. These reject discs will ONLY play on the older style of laserDisc player that uses a laser tube.

Inherited '84 Buick Riviera T Type
1984 Buick Riviera T Type...44,000 original miles and was owned by my grandfather. Immaculate two tone leather interior, digital dash, sports steering wheel, moonroof, turbo v6, less than 1000 made in 1984. Even the rear trunk is electric! I recently had a new radiator, new front shocks, tuned and new battery installed. Receipts to show work. This car does have some hail damage from a recent storm but many of the dents have popped out with the summer heat/sun. (Note: The dash light is for the parking brake which was engaged) Overall very nice car.

RESURRECTED CONVERTIBLES, 1982 BUICK RIVIERA
U.S. MADE CONVERTIBLES WERE PERSECUTED BY THE GOVERNMENT DEEMING THE CONVERTIBLE AN UNSAFE VEHICLE DUE TO POSSIBLE ROLL-OVERS. SO BUICK CONVERTIBLE PRODUCTION CEASED IN 1975 AND CADILLAC IN 1976, THE LAST AMERICAN MAKE TO DO SO. COLLECTORS HOARDED THE LAST CONVERTIBLES THINKING THAT THE DAYS OF AMERICAN PRODUCED RAGTOPS HAD COME TO AN END. BUT AMERICAN LUST FOR CONVERTIBLE CARS PERSISTED AND CAR PRODUCERS DESIGNED NEW SAFETY FEATURES THE GOVERNMENT WOULD LIKE AND BEGAN MAKING RAGTOPS AGAIN. CHRYSLER WAS THE FIRST TO PRODUCE CONVERTIBLES WITH THE 1982 LEBARON. BUICK WAS NEXT WITH THE DEBUT OF THE'82 RIVIERA CONVERTIBLE AT THE CHICAGO AUTO SHOW. THESE RIVIERAS WERE AVAILABLE TO THE PUBLIC IN APRIL. A LIMITED PRODUCTION OF RIVIERA CONVERTIBLES OF 1,248 EXAMPLES WERE BUILT THAT FIRST YEAR. THEY WERE AVAILABLE WITH A V-6 OR A V-8 AND ONLY 2 COLORS, WHITE OR FIREMIST RED COULD BE ORDERD. BASE PRICE FOR THESE LIMITED EDITION RIVIERAS STARTED AT $24,000 AND WITH ADDITIONAL OPTIONS COULD REACH AND EXPENSIVE $30,000 OR MORE. UNFORTUNATELY, THE RECESSION IN '82 CAUSED INTEREST RATES TO SORE MAKING THESE BUICK CONVERTIBLES EVEN MORE EXPENSIVE TO ACQUIRE. THIS BUICK RIVIERA IS NOT ONLY A RARE CAR, BUT A SPECTACULAR ORIGINAL SURVIVOR. IT'S HARD TO BELIEVE THIS CAR IS 28 YEARS OLD. I PERSONALLY KNEW AN OWNER WHO BOUGHT A FIREMIST RED BUICK AND WAS FORTUNATE TO BE ABLE TO DRIVE HIS CAR. WHAT A ENJOYABLE EXPERIENCE IT WAS. HANDLING WAS EASY AND COMFORTABLE AND RESPONDED QUICKLY WITH IT'S V-8 ENGINE. Another rare and original survivor car brought to you by 55lincoln.

1980 Buick Skylark Dealer Demo
This is form a 1979 promotional LaserDisc that I found it is for 1980 model year Buick's. At the beginning of this disc you will hear some audio tones, these where used to program the PR-7800 LaserDisc player, and you will also see single frames of what is on the entire disc as well as still pictures of each model of Buick available that year This WAS the first interactive video experience, the on board CPU in the PR-7800 allowed you to program the viewing and interact with the disc using the remote control. The PR-7800 was intorduced 3 years before the IBM PC-XT In 1978 GM contracted with Pioneer and MCA/DiscoVision to put the Pioneer PR-7800 LaserDisc player into its dealerships, the discs where to be used for demonstrations as in this disc or for training purposes. Now in the early days of laserDisc manufacture there was a very high failure rate, sometimes as high as 85% during the mastering/pressing process, so that left a lot of sides of discs that where unusable. Well these where used to fill the blank side of a disc, the "dead" side was then coated with a special plastic that was clear to the human eye, but it would not reflect the laser beam, thus the side would not play. Well the coating can be removed with rubbing alcohol, which is what I did. These reject discs will ONLY play on the older style of laserDisc player that uses a laser tube
