hey guys, i just picked up a used 03 SSR black with 17k miles on it. got a pretty good deal. a little below blue book on it. this truck is great. i used to own a 2005 WRX and i missed my trucks. i had a 2001 S10 and 1998 Expedition. i love the torque on these things. i am familiar with modding muscle cars/imports so i know what route to go on these things. honestly im gonna enjoy the truck for what it is and just do an exhaust.

nice to meet u guys and glad to be aboard the forums! by the way, i love the attention i get. i drove down the street to my house and had like a ton of people staring at me. i guess they dont know what an SSR is.

IronMedic,

Welcome aboard and congrats on one of the coolest purchases you will ever make.

BTW get used to the stares. Be warned you'll also get requests to see the top go up and down. (I charge a nickel a show)

Lots to see and read here some super sharp SSR's with some pretty trick stuff. Feel free to use the search features I found when I got here most questions have been asked and answered but feel free to throw anything out there.

We've got some top notch wrenches around here that know more about the SSR than just about most GM techs so if you ever have a problem they'll probably know the fix it for you.

Again, congrats and enjoy.

Coz :thumbs

Welcome aboard IronMedic,

The group of people you find on this forum come from a very wide range of skill sets and interests. The one thing we all have in common is the passion we share for the trucks we drive. This goes for the fairer sex that are members too! Knowledge is power, and in the case of this forum, we have a lot. There are about 20,000 SSRs on the road and this forum has about 10% of the fleet population as members.

Enjoy your truck, we all enjoy ours.

Mike

was just there...

Hey, welcome to this site and congrats on your new :ssr . Got a tatoo in Puyallup once. My mother-in-law lives in Auburn and brother-in-law lives in Bonney Lake so there are a "few" folks up there that have seen an :ssr before...was just recently there, in time to see the Blue Angels at Lake Washington...what a sight that was!!!

Hope you are getting a lot of "top down" time.

Just noticed where you are located

IronMedic,

It is a pretty snmall world.... I'll be traveling to Salkum in about 3 weeks to escort my Mother-in-law back to Phoenix for the winter. My wife grew up in Salkum and went to Mossyrock for school. Do the family names Workman and Lane ring a bell??????

Regards,

Mike

I agree with this post also. Well said :thumbs . Us girls may not know much about the technical stuff but we sure love our SSR's :ssr . Thanks for putting up with our girl stuff and for sharing a wealth of information that I would otherwise never have known. That is why I became a supporting member from the get go. My husband is not a computer person so I act as secretary and point out the stuff to him that I think he needs to read. Thanks again.

wow thanks for the warm welcome guys. just curious how old u guys are? i wonder if i am the youngest SSR driver? LOL! i am 25 turning 26 in december. a little info about me!

i am in the air force stationed in tacoma, WA. been in almost 7 years and have been to alot of crazy places. the world is so small when u are flying in planes most of your life. my first real car was a 1989 ford mustang GT convertible that i bought from a friend when i was stationed in england. i began to learn how to modify it. i started with exhaust and worked my way to basic engine bolt-ons. i am going through a divorce right now and it sucks. when i was actually married, my wife wouldnt let me buy anything for any car i owned. of course, that didnt stop me. i then migrated into a 1996 ford mustang cobra. somehow i scored a great deal on it with only 30k miles on it and garaged most of it's life. the leather was still brand new looking on it. pretty amazing. i also owned an S10, expedition, RX8, WRX, and my x-wife just got her cobalt (with my help). i have been in the car game a long time LOL!!

i plan on just doing exhaust work to the SSR. i love the classic look and feel of it. gotta finish it off with a nice catback kit. ill do my homework on the forums for the best catback kits u guys recommend and learn about the little quirks i need to get worked. the dealership is gonna adjust my passenger window for me since it leaks a little bit.

well guys, take care and keep on rollin!

Black '03 too!

There are threads about how old people are, what they do for a living, what songs they have in their CD player, etc.....just use the search button to find out what you want :D

awesome, never thought of searching for how old people are LOL!

i am guessing most of the drivers are in their 30's or higher due to the looks of the truck (classic).

Shudda Got Slingshot!!!

Welcome to fanatic IronMedic - even if you don't drive a Yellow SSR :lol

At least you are in the right Dept of Defense - GO Air Force! :flag

I've been an Air Force Association member for a while - never have been in the service, but I did have some great times helping with the "Gathering of the Warbirds" airshow here in Central California! (Got to go inverted in a P-51 - still trying to get a check ride in a local Air Guard F-16 to break mach - so I can achieve my flying dream...)

Wayyy back in Dec of 2003 I drove my brand new SSR home from Montana thru eastern Washington - wanted to hit up the SeaTac area - BUT weather conditions determined my route home. (Columbia River 84 - to I5 then direct to Kingsburg!)

ENJOY your new Roadster!
