Dear members, its with a very sad broken heart that I will be leaving the group for awhile. Night before last my Smokin' Asphalt 04 SSR was stolen from my driveway and was found abandoned in a remote wooded area and burned!!! It was one one the sadest days of my adult life. It had only 5400 miles on it and I bought it right when the 04's came out. Like all of us it was "very" important in my life. I actually went to the Canadian International Auto Show in 2000 and witnessed its debut. I have the looseleaf binder with all the introductory information and the color slides from the show. The Police have naturally no idea who or why. I will be looking for another, this time maybe an 05 with the same color and ebony interior. I have noticed quite a few on E-bay from dealers brand new at very reasonable prices, better than what I paid. Well anyway ladies and gents....Please keep a watchful eye on your BEAUTIFUL SSR'S and I pray it never happens to anyone else.

TLMSSR04
So sorry to hear about you loss! Burned to hide the fingerprints I would think.
God this makes me soooo mad :mad I'ts one of my biggest fears. I feel so bad for you. I am glad to hear that you will be looking for another.

What state or country are you in? It might be helpful for us other SSR owners.

Wishing you the best in your search for your 05 or maybe 06.

Stolen Ssr

SINCE THE SSR DOES NOT COME WITH ON STAR. I HAVE HAD LO JACK INSTALLD ON MINE. IF THE SSR IS MOVED WITH OUT THE FOB THAT IS HOOKED ON WITH YOUR KEYS . YOU ARE CALLED BY LO JACK TO SEE IF THERE IS A PROBLEM. THEN THE POLICE ARE CALLED. IVE HAD ONE OF MY CARS STOLEN. :mad IT WAS A HEART BREAK TO GO OUTSIDE AND NOT SEE IT. TO ALL OWNERS OF SSR'S ID SUGJEST HAVING ONE PUT ON. IT ONLY COST BETWEEN $300-$500 TO BE INSTALLED. CHEP INSURANCE I THINK. I AM VERY SORRY ABOUT YOUR LOSS. :mad BUT THINK ABOUT WHAT YOU CAN GET KNOW MAY BE THE NEW ORANGE ONE????

Damn that is a real bummer! Sounds like the work of an Ex. On the up side, however,.. it sounds to me like you could get another one fairly cheaply.

A serious problem in our country today is that there is very little deterrent to these types of crimes, along with identity theft and other hard-to-catch-the-perp type crimes.

My answer is to shoot the bastards when they are caught. Publicize it for all to see. The guy who did it is some low life who is worth less than a cockroach anyway. There is no better deterrent than this. :mad

"The Police have naturally no idea who or why". They have an idea just can not prove it.
In the end You make out. Maybe a 2005 with 90 more hp and six speed, and $10,000 or more in you pocket. :seeya

Sorry for your misfortune. Unfortunately,they're alot of POS's out there who don't give a you know what about anyone or anything.
My misfortune is that finances are forcing the sale of my 05 smokin asphalt SSR 6 Speed.
(something I thought would never happen)
The car is located in Richboro PA.(about a 1/2 hour no.of Philly)
If you or any one else is interested,Please E-Mail me at [email protected]
Again...sorry for your misfortune......Paul

:) I am sorry that this happened to you. It speaks of the society we live in today. Take your insurance money, and as you suggested buy another one and enjoy the lower prices. Keep in mind that the truck is only a thing and can be replaced by another thing. While it's a nice truck, it is still only a truck and when compared to your wonderful family, this thing we have grown attached to, pales in comparison.
