New to the forum…hello everyone! 
 

I owned 4 Rivieras, but my first Reatta. White 1991.

 

I was sure surprised to see only ~1600 Reattas built in ‘91.

Good looking car! Also like the "pusher" right next to it...

Welcome to the forum Mark! Make yourself at home. Beautiful looking Reatta. I really like white with white trim like's on your car. The motor home parked beside it isn't bad either. 🙂

Welcome Mark.  I see that your white '91 has the optioned white wheels (a $100 option strait from the factory but available only with the white exterior).

Sometimes when people are trying to sell their Reatta they post photos of it while it's wet to make the paint look shinier. I can't tell much difference in my Reatta between wet and dry in the photos I took this morning after washing and drying it. I think mine looks shinier dry.

Agree - dry is shinier. Major difference between wet and dry is the wetness of the concrete!

Not a great lover of black cars as far as owning one but they sure do look purtty when shined up😎

I'm not a fan of stock Reatta wheels but on that black car with raised white letter tires I think the wheels look really good.

Let's see more photos of Reattas. I love to look at Reatta photos.

 

Here is a photo I took in historic Rugby, TN 10 years ago when I had Mustang wheels on my Reatta.

I'm attaching photos of my '89 Reatta that were taken by my insurance agent when submitting to American Collectors for a quote. The photos are in pdf format, and I don't know how, or if, they can be viewed within this post. I assume, that anyone that would like to view the photos must download the link below and view them in their own folder. Sorry if this doesn't work.

Well, I went ahead and did it. Always wanted a Reatta convertible. 

Though, it had to be white with gray interior. Finally found one with low miles

and after having the mechanic look it over I bought it. He told me that 

He didn't know about the availability of the 'special' Master-brake set up.

Guess that's what this forum is for.

Welcome to the forum Rick! Great looking convertible.  Brakes aren't too bad if you take the time to learn how they work. Parts are getting harder to find.

Hello Ronnie, The brakes are just fine.

My mechanic liked the Reatta so much that

he had to take it for a second test drive.

@Bertimus, nice pics.  I almost bought a black one but someone scooped it up out from under me.  That said, I am glad I got my red one :)

 

I just submitted these photos of mine for a RockAuto magnet :)  I will let you folks know if they pick it.

Interesting wheels, what are those? I sort of lust after a tan interior too, but my red is in good shape.

The wheels are 1990 Olds Toronado rims. The center caps were made using  2" Reatta hood ornaments.0917211308.thumb.jpg.0b87458b84ec919ac43f054e7baee1b7.jpg
