Well,

After my first post last evening, and all of your great feedback, I went to the dealer and ended up with an 05 Aqua Blurr. O5, Loaded ($51,045 list) Six speed.

33K I think that that is one heck of a deal.

Any advice how to tell the wife ?

C1Trob...

I'll change the profile... thanks.... And she would love a ride... in the SSR :jester

Beer - Well, I would like to stay married - she's a good one. :reddevil

Actually she has been through this before with a Viper and a Prowler. She loves the SSR's - funny since she is not a truck person.... but she loves these things !

Welcome to our crowd of crazies. :willy: You sure got the right color. We're pretty rare, second only to the ultra violet. Enjoy the cruisin' and I bet your wife will too!:seeya

Congratulations on your new purchase. Sounds like you got a great deal. What ever you do don't let your wife read this post.

Girlfriend is mad about my SSR!

Congrats!!! You got a great deal and the best color (colors) too. Hardest part with a blur is that you don't know what color to call it. Looks green, blue, purple and various shades in between depending on how the light hits it. I love that!

Here's an idea if the wife needs convincing...toss a couple of overnight bags in the back, put the top down and take her someplace she's been wanting to go for a weekend. Hmmmm....you're in Ohio....may have to wait a little while for the top down part.

Just remember, it is always easier to ask for forgiveness, then to beg for permission. :glol :glol

Congrats on your purchase and welcome to the club. You HAVE chosen the best color. I get comments about the color ALL the time. You will too. Tell your wife it's something you had to have and that it was a steal and will be worth more in the future. Tell her it's an investment. A year ago I paid $44,000 for my loaded 05 and thought I got a good deal. Boy, what a difference a year makes. You done good brother!

These are all great - I especially like the "It followed me Home, can I keep it."

I told her, and she said; " you really didn't did you ? Where are we going to put it......" I couldn't believe it, no Problem !

It's in my Neighbors garage untl he gets back from FL. I have one lift in my Garage, may need to get another but this darn thing is TALL. Hope it fits !

Drove it about 20 miles this evening. Loved everything about it. I own a Prowler and a Viper too and this is a different beast. Have to agree about the color. I love them all but the Blurr just grabed me. And I think it is a very rare color isn't it ? I filled it up and had a guy ask me; " What the heck kind of truck is that ?" and gave me a double thumbs up. What a cool ride....

I am a very blessed man.....

Thanks for all the advice !

John
