My SSR:
'05 Concept Truck, powered by Heavy Duty rubberbands, and a really BIG WINDUP KEY!
I am always glad to heart someone got a good deal on their SSR, however, just because we may have paid a different price, it doesn't count for the true driving pleasure we get from it. I loved it when I saw it a year ago at The State Fair of Texas. I loved it when I found it at the dealership, i loved knowing I could fit in it with as tall and as big as I am. I loved the fact that I found one, (now get this), at the price I was willing to live with. I loved the bargain I got. I love the looks I recieve when I drive it. I loved the road trip from Dallas to Lansing, Mi. to Warren, and back again. I love the leg room. I love the look on peoples faces. I cannot wait to get it out of the paint booth, and start seeing those faces again.

I think to just sum it up, (In words I think the nay-sayers might understand), I LOVE MY TRUCK!!!1

I went to your photos and thought you might enjoy this one, that I took at the Hot Rod Super Nationals this summer. P.S. As a Veteran, I love your theme.

Thanks for letting us know where to post info about pricing. I was wondering if it might be making others feel they paid too much to hear about the great deals happening now. I have to say though, those deals are in large part because of this forum. I haven't been waiting to grab a great deal, I wasn't even aware of the SSR's until I saw one on the road two weeks ago. I'm jealous of all of you who actually have your SSR already, and grateful for the guidance in negotiating a good price.

Yup, I agree.
It doesnt matter what you paid, all of us bought this vehicle with the understanding that its not going to be a hot seller. We are not your Saturn buyer.
So it doesnt matter if you paid more or less it all depends..... if you think you got a good deal, then you did.
Price is not the issue here or should I say it shouldnt be

2006 Racy Aqua Blur 6spd Chromed/SS front Tuned/ported by Jeremy
A thousand thanks for having the SSR Forum at the bottom of the Corvette Forum, I got curious at what had the SS label on it and thru this forum I studied the posts and was able to make a great deal on my 06 Aqua Blur and have been blown away at the FUN I have had with this droptop. I really dont care about "getting the deal of the year", I've grown out of that kind of thinking and realize life is more than MONEY. My heirs may not like that statement but I spend as much as needed when I WANT something. I WANTED the SSR and finding what I wanted was hard enough!! Also....its much easier to be critical than to be correct.

"Deal or no deal" who cares, the fact is we have our SSR's. I can't speak for anyone else and would never do so, but the price you paid for your SSR will never matter, what matters is how much you enjoy the truck. I enjoy mine everyday whether I am driving it or if I open the garage door and see it. It sits next to my 1999 purple Plymouth Prowler and my garage is eye candy for Kathy and I, and everyone in the neighborhood who enjoy fine automobiles. Miles of Smiles!!!!

I agree, I traded of my 2000 Corvette for my SSR and I am glad I did. I enjoy the SSR more than I ever did my vette. People are always waving and giving me a thumbs up which I almost never got in the vette.

For most of us, we want to share in the great joys of ownership and the great friendships we have developed on here... not really interested if you happened to get a great buy by hundreds or thousands of dollars than "we" did.

Please lets enjoy the positive experiences and not dwell on "LOOK AT THE GREAT DEAL I JUST GOT!"

If we find a posting elsewhere dealing with prices of an SSR buying or selling it will be respectfully moved into the SSR for Sale thread.

Comments anyone?
I agree 100%! If you enjoy your SSR. how can you dwell on what you paid for it? Bottom line is we've all overpaid for a 2 seated pickup that you can't/wouldn't haul bricks & 2x4's in. I bought the truck for the style, and the potential camraderie it can bring. Fact is, for the price, we all could have bought nice Corvettes, but obviously that's not what we wanted. So let's quit worrying about present/future value, and just enjoy our SSR's and one another!

I would like to put my 2cents worth in. We payed list for our truck in 2004 when most of the dealers were marking them up as much as $5000. I have no regrets for what I payed. This his truck is a blast to drive. We have meet the greatest people through this forum. I wouldn't trade our truck for any amount of money. I feel sad for anybody with buyers remorse.

Getting a steal or paying market doesn't really matter nor did it matter when you signed the sales contract.. you finally got the "R" you have wanted for a long time.
Along with that came multiples of friends you probably never would have met without that "R". You will have a lifetime of good memories long after your kids take that driver's license away..
So truth be known the price really did not make the deal work it was those sexy curvy fenders and that big ole permagrin that bought that "R" not that price.

Happy Cruisin my friends.. still so very privileged to be one of the Fanatics
