Hi everybody, My name is Joel and I need your guys (and gals)help. I am a Product specialist on the 2006 Chevrolet SSR on the American Revolution Mountain Tour. We are traveling all over the Rocky Mountains promoting 6 Chevrolets. It seems ot be a pretty cool job so far!

But i havent had my first event yet. Our first event starts tommorrow at Breckenridge CO. I already know alot about the SSR, but what i want to know is what you guys think of it. I think its pretty cool now with the LS2 in it and availible 6-speed.

So tell me what you guys think of it. we wont actually have one at this even till possibly saturday, but should have a yellow one after that.

So come on out and say hi, i can post later where we will all be, but right now i want to hear what you guys think of it! thanks!

Joel

Having owned one for just short of three years now

I had to say

I love it. :thumbs

Great ride, attractive curves, powerful, handling is terrific, and quite the attention getter. :cool

If I had some extra cash I'd buy a second or third one just to play with.

Welcome... I purchased my 2004 back in July and I LOVE IT!!! I actually get withdrawls when I do not drive it..... :lol

This is the first modern GM product I have owned...my previous two Chevys were a 1959 Apache pickup and a 1966 Chevy fullsize pickup. I love the classic look and if you crave attention, this is the vechile for you. I believe you will get more looks with a SSR than a Corvette. They are pretty rare around this part of Texas.... There are two (counting mine) in my town, although I have not officially met the other owner in town.... We do wave at each other a lot..... :seeya

I love my 2005 Silver sled. 5000 trouble free miles. Sad to here what's in store for the SSR. The Colorado event sounds interesting but it would be tough to leave S. Fla. Have fun!!

I honestly would have a terrible time choosing between my SSR and my C6. While each is a totally different vehicle the rush you get every time you drive either one is the same. I am a very blessed man and appreciate it. Good Luck

Hi Joel, sounds like you have the ideal job for me. You get to drive and talk about the SSR and if you're a skier you get to ski also. I skied Breckenridge and the rest of the Summit ski areas back in March for two weeks earlier this year. Even though I drive out there I would never subject my 2006 Black Tie SSR to the elements of the Colorado mountain weather and highway mess. But it would look real slick with both of my Monoskis being transported on the rear deck. I drive out west just about every year for a couple of weeks of skiing to get it out of my system all at once. Love Utah the best; Park City and Alta. Thirty years of skiing. I have an HHR to go with my SSR. If I had your job I guess I'd also have to have a Taho or Suburban for my western trips. I drive my QX56 out west for my ski trips. Love my SSR it's just about a month old but due to the foul Chicago weather it's being a Garage Queen with only 160 miles so far. Well enjoy your great job and ski a run or two for me (that is if you're a skier).

Oh, and by the way, if I could have another vehicle I'd like to have two SSR's; one for fun and play and the other for play and fun. :leaving

Lucky Man...

I love to drive, so I drive for a living. I joke about somebody actually paying me to drive my SSR. I've had several Corvette's, and was actually going to buy one, till I found my Black 05, 6-speed SSR. Alot more fun to drive and the SSR people are some of the nicest I've met. Every where I go I feel like I'm driving a parade float and should be waving to the crowd.....

Well Joel this is how I really feel about my SSR. I had a black 2004 350Z Touring Coupe with burnt orange interior with 2.700 miles which I got compliments on all of the time. I saw an SSR sitting for several months out by my Z dealer. One day I stopped to look at it out of curiosity, all of a sudden one of the sales vultures rushed out to talk to me about the vehicle. He asked me if I would like to drive it. I said sure. At the time I'm not sure I even knew it was a hardtop convertible; I also had no idea it had a vette engine. Once the salesman started it I was really impressed with the sound; I thought it sounded better than my Z. Then we got in and he showed me how to let the top down. We put the windows up, heat on and seat heaters on and we took off. After just about a mile of driving it I knew it was what I wanted. It was an 05 Smokin Asphalt which I did not get at that time at that dealer, but after two months of research and the right price I found the 06 Smokin Asphalt I wanted and the rest is history. Enjoy the slopes.

After 7 months of ownership, I agree totally. It's the vehicle I intend to drive for the rest of my life! LOVE IT! :ssr

When did you take delivery??? I took delivery of #1740 in Dec of 2003 - just celebrated the 2nd anniversary...

As far as the SSR goes - she's a keeper! I'm looking forward to a long 'Travelling" retirement - and to my 'See The USA / MLB ballpark tour' in the spring of '07...

Hi everybody, My name is Joel
Hi Joel. I started working for GM in 1964 and being a loyal employe and a dyed in the wool hot roder I started buying GM performance cars. Along the way I've had one of just about every performance vehicle GM has manufactured, 442, SS's, Corvettes, IROC Z28, TransAm, Formula 400, Grand National, SS454 trucks, GMC Typhoon and at the same time built a few junkyard relic hot rods. The hot rods were probably the most fun but the reliabilitly and handling were just not there. Many times I daydreamed of a GM built hot rod, old vehicle, big V8 and all the niceities of a factory vehicle. I was always partial to hot rod pick-ups also. When the SSR showed up at the Detroit auto show I thought I had died and gone to heaven. I have a silver 04 SSR now and to say it is great is a gross understatement.

my babies

I brought a 05 sling shot last May. I like this car so much I recently brought a second black 05 6 spd when I heard the lansing plant was closing. With the power, ride and options I this thing beats any vehicle I have owned. Most people I talk to have never heard of the ssr. I predict before it is over these machines will be a highly sought after by collectors. The real reason I have these babies though is my personal enjoyment. If I have a down day, I just take a spin in the ssr and everything is roses. You will never find a vehicle like this for the price. SSRs FOREVER !!!

Let us know when you are coming to the Dallas area for the American Revolution and let us show you how much we love our SSR's. I don't think you could find a better bunch of people then the SSR owners. Just look into our galleries and see how we have baby'd our vehicles. The personalizations, the upgrades, and all the talk. I have had mine since Feb.2005, and have cruised to Michigan and Florida in it. I forsee a trip to Denver this next summer, (the key word being summer, :lol ). I love the truck, the looks, and just how good it makes me feel driving it around.

SSRs Rule

Hey Joel

I have been an SSR owner since Sep 2004. I went to a dealership in San Antonio to purchase a vette but found myself admiring an asphalt and eventually purchasing a redline a few weeks later. I truly love this vehicle. The looks, sound, and performance are outstanding. I have had absoultely no probllems with mine and I am approaching 15,000 miles. I never had so much fun in my life when I am behind the wheel of my SSR. There is a God.
Redrodder :ssr

What a great feeling

Joel,

Every time I go out the door to get into the SSR and reach in my pocket to get the keys, I get the same excited feeling I had when I was 17 and looking at my first car in the driveway. I never would have thought that I could buy a factory street rod...... and this one comes with a warranty. It just doesn't get much better than this.

I avoid the all-inclusive and all-exclusive terms like "never" and "always" when I communicate, because there may be an exception that would prove me wrong...... Let me tell you this with the deepest conviction:

I have NEVER had this much fun.

Mike

Lean Mean

While I agree with all of the statements below. I'll have to add..... it is a Lean Mean Driving Machine with unbelievable style,sophistication and a conversation masterpiece. You just can't leave home without it.........PRICELESS.
