CC Outtake: As Different As Black And White

Outtake Riviera and VW  2

This seductive black ’66 Riviera has lived in front of this house for some years, and it was the subject of my tribute to GM’s second VP of Design, calling it “The Ultimate Bill Mitchell-Mobile”. Recently it’s been joined by what pretty much has to be the most polar opposite car available on the market at that time, a white VW Beetle. Opposites attract, they say, and the Riviera now has company at the curb. It must be really tough to decide which of these two to take for a drive on the weekends.
