:cheers They had Five SSR's at the beginning of the race. It was shown quite a bit. Not much talk about the vehicle but sure did get an eyefull! I am sold on getting one now more than ever! Just wish it would enter into GM's VOMS system soon.
There were 5 of them on the first few laps. I was a little disappointed that there was not much said about them but Chevrolet did have their first commercial for the SSR during the race. It was a really cool looking machine. If you looked closely there were, what appeared to be about a dozen of them in a parking lot just off the track near turn #1. You could see them when the camera would pan around following the race.
I talked with my dealer a few days ago and he thinks they are about ready to release them for order. He is also checking to see if chevrolet will allow people who are ordering the SSR's to come to the plant and watch it being made. Sort of the way they do at the Ciorvette factory.
It would have been nice to see it come off the line but for $500, they can kiss my [email protected]@. BMW has a great program for delivering your car and it's free. You can have your car deliver to their performance center in South Carolina. As long as you get there( you pay airfare), thet pick you up on Fridy night (in a BMW), free hotel (Marriott) and dinner, next day at 7 am tour of the museum, ten to the track where you can drive the car you ordred but is ONE OF THEIR CARS for the day on the track( wet and dry conditions), then take delivery of your car. You can then drive home or have it delivered to the dealer for a nominal charge. Now that's class.
Also they have a European delivery program that makes the car cheaper. You can pick up the car in germany, drive around Europe for 29 days or less, dropp it off at one of their 23 locations around Europe to be delivered to your dealer. The savings are large enough to pay for the trip to Germany and a 10 day stay if you are frugal. The saving has something to do with the used car import, I'm not 100% sure.
I would not pay $500 to see it being made. They should adopt the BMW approach, that sure would be a classy way to do it. You would think that GM would like to have the good press. Heaven know we will paying a premium for them.
Supposedly I will placing the order on mine Wed. the 18th. The dealer expects it to be in by late July.
I found out todat that Chevrolet does not allow anyone to come even to the Corvette plant. They stopped the tours after 9-11. My SSR was ordered into the system today according to my dealer. Should be in in 60-8 weeks.
I was wondering which stare has the most SSRs? I would imagine it would be one of the southern states. Florida would be my first guess or could it be Texas or California. Does anyone know? Arizona could also be in the top of the list.
Last week I was sitting in a Denny's with my R in the lot when I was approached by Ken Feicht who lives in my town Tavares Fl. and has a SSR. In a quick discussion I found he was familiar with most of the key and knowledgeable members of the forum. He was very personable and offered expertise in...
I was watching Bitchin Rides the other day and they were tricking out a 53 Chevy pickup. When they got done it looked a lot like an SSR with one exception. The split windshield. Pulled up a pic off the internet and added a thin blue line. What do you think?
Got our genuine embroidered dash pad from Dicktator installed today.
Top quality embroidery work, these are the good ones, not the thin swap meet stuff!.....Fits great, looks great!
