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.

Buick Riviera, 1980, 5.7 L V8
My lovely Buick Riviera 2-door Coupé, 157 Hp Capture iPhone 6s Plus 17.February 2016 Ab 1979 stellte der Mutterkonzern General Motors die Personal-Luxury-Modelle Buick Riviera, Oldsmobile Toronado und Cadillac Eldorado auf eine gemeinsame Basis (E-Plattform); die Modelle unterschieden sich lediglich durch stilistische Details der Linienführung, die Innenausstattung und teils auch durch ihre Motorisierungen. Zugleich wurde der Riviera erstmals auf Frontantrieb umgestellt. Der neue Riviera wies nach wie vor einen separaten Rahmen auf, besaß nun aber unabhängig aufgehängte Hinterräder anstelle der Starrachse. Neben dem Grundmodell, das über einen 5,7-Liter-V8 (157 PS/115 kW) besaß, wurde ein Riviera S-Type mit einer 172 PS (126 kW) starken Vierfachvergaser-Version des hauseigenen turbogeladenen 3,8-Liter-V6 angeboten
