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.

New project: 1997 Buick Riviera Supercharged
PIcked this one up off Craigslist for $400 plus $50 to deliver it. Car runs and drives but has what sounds like rod knock. I still need to to some diagnostic work, but that's what it sounds like to me, and the guy I bought it from was a mechanic and thinks the same. The car is fully loaded with what looks to be every option offered right down the traction control and engine block heater. The car has just under 100k on it and it in excellent shape in and out. The car has been sitting for a year or so and looks it, but it will get washed when it gets warmer.

DiscoVision "Bumper" 1978
This "Bumper" was at the front of all "DiscoVision" LaserDisc presentations. There are a lot of defects in the picture, such as speckles and dropouts. In the early days they had not yet figured out that the discs need to be pressed in "Clean Room" like conditions. in fact I have seen hair and pieces of bugs in the plastic on some early Discs.
