Rear bumper/trim piece thingy? (Fuzzy?)

Rear bumper/trim piece thingy?

I have seen some pictures in the avatars, and the one in Fuzzy's signature, showing a rear trim piece that reaches across the tailgate from end-to-end. Is this avaiable to purchase, or is it a concept thing? Also, I see it reaches across the taillights - if this thing does exist, how exactly does it work with the contours of the rear end? Whatever it is, it's extremely cool! :)

The rear bar was on the concept truck, and was eliminated from the production unit by the GM Design team.

They wanted to keep the back end clean. For what it's worth, I really like the clean back end - others have posted that they would prefer the bar.

The original design had upper and lower taillights, and recesses in the metal for the bar.

I would recommend checking old posts for the book "SSR - An American Original" - put out by Automotive Quarterly, and available from them or, as others have posted, from Amazon. It's a great history of how the SSR came to exist, and makes you appreciate just how lucky we are that this coolest of toys made it to production.
