To whomever can answer this question. I do not actually own an SSR but am looking into purchasing one. The question I have is to quiet down a habitual BSer from my hometown. He shows up last week when I was back home with a yellow SSR and this thing has Indianapolis Pace Car decals on it. He is trying to convince the rednecks that don't know much more than F150, Ram & Silverado back home that it is a one of a kind limited edition, and that only one was built (and that he payed $75,000 for it). I told them that he was full of crap and that the indy editions were not yellow (but blue) & that he just stuck decals on an under $50,000 SSR. Was I wrong or was he telling the truth on what he purchased?

You see them all day, or did, on EBay in the Mid West area. Most sold for the mid to high 30's and had between a few hundred to a few thousand miles on them. There were alot of them used for the event, I think the yellow ones were for the NASCAR race, they had quite a few stickers on them, some even included the documents for the event that had the drivers name that drove the car. EBay was flooded with them a few weeks ago, I guess the dealers were trying to move them fast. Don't see them much anymore though, maybe now and then. Nothing special about them other than the stickers, I was going to buy one and take off the stickers.

Bottom line, yeah, he's full of &*$%, you must know him well .........
:seeya

Tried that.

I asked him to see the paperwork and he is just blowing me off, but has my hometown buffalo'ed into believing him. He has a sweet truck, don't get me wrong. But I want him to represent it for what I think it really is.

Ok, I'm NOT picking on you here....

If you know he is a liar and he knows he is a liar, why do you care that he is going around and lying to everyone else?

It just doesn't matter.....but of course if you could make him look silly :jester


(Get the VIN number and someone from this forum can look up the info for you)



BTW my SSR came with the Brooklyn Bridge and some land in Florida near some big lake I believe :lol

His is one of 43 SSR that were used as driver introductions at the track - Prior to that those SSR's were driven around Indy by Indy VIP's. One of these VIP's got into a police chase and wrecked an SSR - so I guess that means one of 42 with the decals... http://www.ssrfanatic.com/forum/showthread.php?t=3919

These SSR's were shipped out to local dealerships after the race and sold. If he paid 75K - he got taken!!!

For example - on eBay now:
Chevrolet : SSR TravisKvapil
2006 SSR Brickyard 400 Nascar Driver Introduction car
Don't miss this one of a kind SSR. This was one of the 45 used for driver introductions at the AllState 400 at the Brickyard on August 7, 2005. The lucky owner of this special car also receives a commorative edition plaque with a picure of the car at Indianapolis Raceway and an actual piece of the track along with a certificate of authenticity. The window sticker is also signed by the driver that rode in the SSR.
MSRP- $47,750
The SSR itself is also very special. It is one of the first two-tone SSRs to be built by GM.

The only Indy pace SSR was Ultraviolet. We had the Signature Series 25 there for the press show in 2003.
