From what I read on various threads here it looks like GM is reducing the output of SSR's being manafactured. I'm trying to think of how this will affect SSR owners, like myself, who intend to keep my car for a long, long time. My rambling thoughts are as follows: 1. Less aftermarket items produced as it isn't financially feasible to design, tool-up, and mfg. products for a very limited market. I know that is what happened to the new Ford Thunderbirds. 2. GM Service Dept. personnel will get very little actual "hands on" OJT working on SSR's as fewer are sold at dealerships. Along with this, will dealers send any of their mechanics to GM schools for SSR training if they're not selling many SSR's at their particular dealership? My small, local Chevy dealer has had one SSR on the showroom since March of 2004. It is a Silver 2004 and the only one this dealer has ever had and he says due to his not being able to sell this one he does not intend to ever order any more. 3. What about parts availability for SSR's. Both mechanical and body parts. In 5, 6. or 7 yrs. will GM be able to supply parts for the complicated roof system or fenders or hoods if you should ever wreck your baby? The SSR has so many unique parts that aren't used in other GM vehicles.

These are just a few of the possibilities that may occurr. What else am I missing and am I correct in those I've listed? I guess the biggest possible positive is that the value of the SSR may increase if they do stop future production. Just thinking out loud this morning about what the future may hold for us SSR owners.
