Getting the VIN is a BIG rush! I got mine on 11/18 - #1740. Per the dealer it will be at his shop on Friday 11/28.
I purchased via ebay in May - from a Montana Chevy dealership, thinking a summer trip back to California would be pretty cool! Well, now I get to see just how well the traction control system works when I go pick it up next week.
My built week was also 11/17 and was built on that date (MOnday) and shipped on Tuesday. I thought that was pretty quick. I bet you that yours is in transit. Going to HI may take a bit longer than Illinois from Michigan. I do not feel bad for you you can still bring your top down when ever you get it. I got 3 stinking days over 40 (Friday, Sat, Sun) which I drove with the top down. Thern it started raining and got under 30:banghead :banghead :banghead
Actuall #1619 is not coming to Hawaii,I am going to keep it in Phoenix, Az. This might have been a better place for a Convertible but my wife won't give up her Corvette and we need atleast one 4 or 5 passanger car here (have a PT-Turbo)for that.
Thare are lots of convertibles here but we seldom even open the
"Sun Roof on the PT or Lift or the Center section of Corvette Coupe."Coming from Arizona we are to used to air conditing.
In fact except for the "Cool Part" I would have rather had a solid top and a cheaper price on the "SSR".(No Bashing Please) L O L
Most people are asking if I will drive it every day or if I would park it in the garage. I tell them naaaah. It has been sighted dozens of times around town. Like Lady in red and CRUZNED have said--
these babies are made to drive. I plan on sharing mine.
Okay...where to begin...took another trip to Southern Cal this
time to Los Angeles, Santa Monica, Malibu and on up to Ventura...came back to Vegas by way of Simi Valley (saw fire destruction..really bad...) then thru the Angeles National Forest..
Beautiful up there..had the most reactions in Ventura..no one has seen one in person until now..most think it is a kit car until they see the top go up and down and I convince them it is really a product of GM..
Forgot to mention when I went to the Motor Trend show this past week in Vegas..and the girls there who hosted the GM area and the only one red SSR ISA..told me in answer to my question as to how many were built this year..one said 17,000. Somehow I cant believe this... they also said only 3500 were going to be built for 04's ..also none of the girls had a chane to drive one yet.
CONGRATS to TrexTex on your new SSR!!!You will love it!!!
LCC is running about 55 hours this week. Doing about 70 cars a day +/- 5. I dont remember the last VIN stamped today but its pretty close to 2410. I hope that can give some of you an idea of when your car will be built.
This stamp happens on the frame line where the motor is set on its frame. Frame/Trans/Motor are stamped here... and its around an hour of line time before the frame is married with its body.
- off topic - GM has the ball rolling on making steering effort easier, not sure how long before that takes place though.
