Motor Trend Tv is rebroadcasting the Speed is the New Black episode where they cannibalize an SSR and paint it root beer. I know this wasn’t popular with the group, but it is rare occasion to see one on tv.
I like Chasing Classic Cars and especially "Iron Restoration". Amanda can go get me parts any time of the day.😉😉😉🤪🤪🤪🤪.Interesting, Bruce . . .
That particular show was primary in my decision to DROP The New Black from my viewing list.
So far I have not missed them . . . not even a little bit.

I do not think that is a concern. The reviews here were pretty tough on that show the first time around.Just got to watch the show on You Tube and got to be honest the final result on the SSR does not float my boat, in fact the increase in power was all it had going for it and the running boards were pretty cool. Hope I don,t offend anyone.
The stuff that came off the truck sat around there for about 2 years in crates in the body shop area. One of the guys who works there was offered the parts and he bought them. He put them in storage and sat on them for a while. I got word of the parts and bought what was SSR exclusive from him. The running boards, they took the bottom braces off and used them on what they made. I did not get the wheels and tires or the engine from it. I used some of the parts on my trucks and have sold a few of the parts and still have a couple things. I did get to talk to the guy at length about the build and the TV show and how that was to work on it.Tell us the rest of that story!
There are a whole lot more Corvette people to start with. I wonder how we stood up if you look at it by percentages.He said while we (SSR people) may have sent hate mail, the Corvette people way out did us. He said when they cut up a fully restored Corvette that they got tons of hate mail over that one
Nailed it!Wasn't on my tv, haven't seen the full show as of yet. What i get so far is "A Doctor has an SSR and took it to this shop to have a custom build...his truck, his money, if he's happy that what counts" & a lot jerks beatin' on our SSR's with there opinion, If you haven't driven one you wouldn't understand
