My father is the owner of a new 2004 Slingshot yellow Chevy SSR. The car is fully loaded and even has a spoiler. About 700 miles have been put onto it. The car was bought about 2 months ago, maybe less and still looks as new as the day he purchased it from the dealership. Anyway, my dad just got a look at the new Aqua blurr 2005 SSR. He loved the color right away, much more than the yellow. We had no knowledge of this color existing/coming out when he bought his. So the car is not loaded like ours. No running boards, carpetting in the rearbed, saddle bags, cargo net, wooden slats, nothing at all. No extras in the least. They wanted $52,000 for the car out the door, which is what my father paid for his, not two months ago. My father talked to the salesman about what we would have t pay ,in difference, to trade his SSR for the 2005 aqua blurr SSR. The dealer came up with a figure about two hours later and asked us to come buy to see the figure. To our Disgust, the dealer said our car was only worth $34,000 to them and that the a trade for our car would run $17,000. He then said SSR's were hard to sell and blah, blah, blah. I would have been embarressed to come out and give that figure. To think that the value of that SSR was so little at the Dealers. When we got home we checked for our value of our SSR on the Kelly Blue Book. There is not even a listing for 2004 SSR's there yet. He just pulled it out of thin air.
