I'm not a Buick guy due to some early incidents involving the brand.

I like that 71 with that “boattail”.

I had to vote NO INTEREST for a rare time.  I hate doing that!  But after the Gen 1 Buick Riviera's, the brand just went downhill in the looks department to my eyes.  I wouldn't even take one if offered to me.  On looks alone, all three are right near the top of my list of unattractive cars.

I've always felt the 1966 and 1967 Rivieras were under-appreciated largely because they followed the iconic first generation. I find them to be very beautiful.

Boattail second. My Aunt wanted to give me her 1971, but I wasn't yet established, and I lived in Manhattan. The rusty rocker panels weren't enticing either. Still regret it though.

Retired in Dunedin, Florida.

Gen 2 is a beautiful car but for me Riviera styling fades big time after that.

I'm not fond of Buicks to start with and the Riviera styling just did not appeal to/for me.

Gen 3 for me.  Loved the long nose and the way it was shaped.

Gen 2 and 3 are very close, Gen 4 trails far behind.

Gen 2 for me. The 1966-67 are my favorite Rivs, and I think the refreshed 1968-69 were nicely done.  However, not a fan of the 1970 model.

Gen 2. The Gen 3 boattail seems way too bloated. Huge! A 63-67 Corvette it's not.
