Hi, as from the title, I'm a Brit who has been driving American Cars and trucks since I was 21, and 63 now so 42 years of American V8s and now looking to get my 1st SSR, I've had a Supercharged Silverado SS, Z71s C10S, Blazers, Camaros, etc, I've even owned fords and Mopar but not for long, I'm a Chevy man at heart.. I've always wanted a SSR and as we will be buying a new house soon, where I can have my dream Garage built for my eclectic car/truck collection, Looking for my SSR .
No doubt I'll be asking questions about how to etc..
I've decided on Red and a 6.0 , and might add supercharger as I do love the sound, but it will depend on how quick the 6.0 is without.
My wife tells me men don't grow up, their toys just get more expensive, and yeah i resemble that statement lol.
Looking forward to chatting with you all, It's been too long since I've been stateside so a truck buying road trip sound good. Eamonn

WELCOME, C4EVY . . . from Southern Arizona.

The Search may be a little tough for you but after you locate the Perfect SSR . . . THE DRIVE HOME COULD BE EVEN TOUGHER.

Good Luck !

lol I love a challenge ;) any excuse to visit the USA to find a truck, I've done it a few times over the years, I'd found my SS but the guy who was selling was unsure as i was a long way away and his wife got nervous that i could be a scammer, so we flew over to meet them and see the truck, all went well and I'm still friends with him, although a 4 day trip turned into two weeks and we bought a Cadillac escalade as well lol . I bought my Z71 from a dealer in Holland and did drive that all the way back to the UK, and in the 80s and 90s sold lots of classic American cars to Sweeden and delivered lots of them.. There are some SSRs in the UK and Europe but not found a Red 6.0 yet so looking like a USA visit ;)

Good luck with your search. You should start Here since most of these will be well cared for and ready to travel.
And if you time it right you might even get to a rally and meet some of the family!

It's pretty awesome that you have appreciated American muscle cars through the years! Now you will be finding out what we mean by having a "PermaGrin" once you find that red 06 that you're looking for! Like others have said, once you find one it's likely that you will be able to locate a Fanatic nearby to put his eyes on it first before you make the trip! Best of Luck! 馃槈馃嚭馃嚫馃槑
