The Riviera has a new, very dedicated owner since August 2012.
His name is Röime Jonsson.
Röime sent me a couple of photos of the Boattail at its new home port Kungshamn.
Funny thing is that Kungshamn means "Kings Port" in Swedish. I think it's rather appropriate for the old "Boat" ;-)
Röime also owns another vintage car, a Volvo P1800 from the 60’s which can be seen on the photos with the Riviera.

Röime and me just before he drove the Riviera to its new home.
The Boattail at its new port Kungshamn, north of Gothenburg on the Swedish west coast.
After careful consideration, I decided to let go of my Boattail in August of 2012
The decision was not easy, considering
that I have owned it for over twelve years and put a lot of work and dedication to the project.
But the passion faded with time and the last three years another old passion, motorcycle riding, became stronger and unfortunately there wasn’t enough time for both.
So rather than heaving the Riviera just parked in the garage, I felt it would be better that somebody with the right passion took over the project.
The car has now a new, very dedicated owner, who by the way doesn’t live far from here.
