How many were made and where are they? I dont think that picture on the mini brochure was a digital re make. They had to have a pilot build of these trucks early in the model year.

What I have heard was there wasn't any pilots run in Sunburst Orange they were to have been built in February or March. Also the image on the Spring Edition post card in Sunburst Orange was photoshoped in. It was taken off the Pacific Blue image you see below... and the other image below is photoshoped too can you tell which SSR was recreated in that photo?

Wow thats a shame can you imagine what the Pilot cars could fetch at auction?

I am disappointed that GM didn't attempt to at least make the last 100 of them S/E models

There had been some discussions within GM all the way through the life of the SSR about doing one more limited special edition or a "Final 25 Edition" SSRs but regrettably there wasn't enough time to carry out that goal.

Did anyone happen to see the sunburst orange SSR on E-bay a few weeks back?
This SSR was specially made and owned by,(I beleive), the president of GM. It had several prototype parts especially made for the vehicle that weren't on any of the other SSRs. Could have been a prototype for that Spring Edition SSR...

The president of GM??????? I thought it was the guy who ran ACP or ASP whoever the company that helped with a lot of the SSR's development including the top.

The auction on the ASC "special edition" car hit the low 40's but the reserve was still not met. Didn't sell.

I see. I guess it'll be hitting the E-bay circuit once again. Unless the seller decides to post it somewhere else like Dupont Registry.

That ASC "Special Editon" SSR with it's special paint job and other optioins should bring in some higher $$$.
