Hi, I am from Wyoming. I do not have an SSR yet, but i am hard core planning to get one in the next year. I am kinda new to forums, although I am a computer guy also, so sorry if i seem awkward. Also any advice on finding one is appreciated.
Best place to start looking are the ones for sale here by some of the Fanatics as these will have a majority of the upgrades done to them already and have been taken care of over the years. North Freeway Hyundai always has some there and they have a good reputation for what they sell. Keep checking here as guys are always reporting trucks they see for sale in there travels. Good Luck on your search and find the one you want.
Side note 03-04's will run a little cheaper then the 05-06 because of the larger motor, available 6 speed and chrome option that were not available for the earlier models.
How much do you want to spend ??? That's the big ticket item.
Decide what color you prefer :ssr urple: (Ultra Violet, only 1,300 made) :yellow: :black: :silver: :blur: or :blue: (Pacific Blue ... rare only 532 made)
What year do you want ... 03's & 04's have smaller engines than the 05 and 06's.
Take your time, decide what you want, such as Chrome Rims, Automatic or 6 Speed, Runnin' Boards, Carpeted Cargo Area and etc.

Please let me :00000732: you to our wonderful world of SSRfanatic's (SSR to be, I guess would be the best term for you right now). Anything you want to know about a C H E V R O L E T Super Sport Roadster (SSR) can be found on this web site. DO NOT be afraid TO ASK. Again :00000732: aboard cowboy :smile2: aka Bob Alexander
ElekWaldron, Welcome from Forney Texas!!! you have found the BEST FORUM ever! BUT-----Consider going to "Tools" in the red banner, click on "User CP" go to "Your Profile" then click "Edit Your Details". Then, whenever you "post" it will show in the left column under your name, like the rest of us, and we will know where you are and what you drive. Then if you have a problem, someone close by might be able to help out, and in your case, meet to show you different things.
Elek, welcome to the wonderful world of SSRs. :00000732:
You can find a wealth of information just by reading old threads, filling in with Google Site Search at the top. Asking questions works, there are no dumb questions.
Welcome from Middle Georgia...We look forward to hearing more about the search for the love of your life. Because that's exactly what these SSRs are to many of us.
Take your time, definitely do your homework on this forum and research the differences between 2003s & 2004s compared to the 2005s & 2006s!! Mentioned above, if color is important to you, you may not get the engine size you want. If a manual transmission is important to you, that's only available on 05 & 06 models. Figure out what's most important to YOU and go after it!!
All these Rs (as we like to call them) will have some "stuff" that needs to be checked and replaced. That's where the family steps in!!! Everybody that belongs to this forum is family; we will help you in every way possible, some by telling you how to do it, others by meeting up with you and getting their hands dirty with you!!
Buying an SSR from someone that has loved and cherished their R would be my preferred route of purchasing one; as opposed to buying one from a dealership. NOW, that being said...the one dealership that everyone RAVES about and trusts the most is North Freeway Hyundai in Texas.
Buying from a private owner on the forum could possibly save you a few bucks over a dealership; along with that private owner being able to show, tell & explain everything that has been done to that specific vehicle!!
Read, research, ask lots of questions and if anyone makes you feel awkward in this family...we will do our best to make them feel even more awkward!! LOL
Welcome!! I'm new to SSR ownership. I live in Cedar City, Utah. Not much to pick from so I looked here, CarGurus, and ICars(?). I found my 2005 black 6 speed with 28,500 miles in Colorado. Keep looking, they're out there and they're worth the wait!!!!!!!
