When I bought my 04 last week, the dealer said he had heard that 2005 would be the last year for SSR production. Was he just BS'ing me? Whether it is true or not, it wouldn't have swayed my decision. I LOVE THIS CAR!
HI Keith,kwhopper89 said:I had heard early on that there was to be a three year production - and have heard that GM will make them for awhile. I guess the market will help make that decision. I would have been OK if the production would have stopped at 1741....

Lansing Craft Centre, which builds the Chevrolet SSR pickup. The plant, which employs about 300 hourly workers, will have extended downtime the week of Jan. 3.
