dohyatt, It was around 40 degrees here in NW Tennessee and I took advantage of the weather for a 75 mile cruise through Land Between The Lakes (between the Tennessee River and the Cumberland River) and Ft. Donelson (Civil War battlefield) at Dover, Tn. Too cold for the top to be down but got to listen to all 4 CD's from ZZ Top's Chrome, Smoke and BBQ box set. I'm ready for Springtime!
ricardo, Yeah, you're right, I think most of us are crazed, obsessed, fanatical or whatever you want to call us but damn we're having fun with our new rides! I just don't know of any other vehicle being made that puts smiles on the faces of both the owners and observers the way the SSR does. When I picked up my Redline Red SSR from a large dealer in the St. Louis area they had 2 new Corvettes (a yellow one and a black one) out in front of the dealership and people would walk by without even looking at them just so they oggle the SSR. People of all ages gravitate to the SSR like it's a magnet. I have yet to buy gas without attracting a crowd of people asking a myriad of questions about "what is it" and 99% compliment it. I had an 82 yr. old neighbor lady say it's the best looking car she's ever seen. She is a bit senile and her eyesight isn't the best so I might not put a lot of validity in her judgement. Hope you get an early Spring up your way so you can get it on the road!

Taking side trip to Chatsworth show room for my SSR
Hello! I am a relatively new member, but not new to reading all of the discussions....this particular one got my attention...I completely agree! I cannot drive my SSR without smiling :yesnod
I, too, waited two years for mine and it was well worth the wait!!!
I'd heard it was one of the first in CA, but I wasn't sure....yes, I hope to show it...that would be fun!
I got on the waiting list in hopes of "maybe some day" and never really expected it to happen, especially after all of the delays and cancellations....but my dealership stayed true and never expected a deposit....I would recommend them to anyone!!! Chase Chevrolet in Stockton, California.
I, too, have the toys and shirts ....as I said above, I thought that was as close as I'd get!
I know the 'waiting' feeling. I ordered mine in June and took delivery in December. Drove it to California from Missoula Montana - Karl Tyler Chevrolet - good folks...
(Local dealership wanted 35k over...)
This idea is on another forum that I visit, and I think it is a great idea!
:yellow: :ssr :black: :purple: :silver: :blur: :blue:
It's early here, so I haven't done anything to mine yet, but a top to bottom cleaning is needed on my R. I hope to get to that today. ;)
Just returned from Cabriolet Hydraulics in Bradenton, FL. and can't praise them enough especially Zig the owner. Took my 2003 SSR in for leaking cylinders and a roof ajar issue. Within a couple of days everything was working like new. Zig even replaces the fuse and light bulb on the bed cover...
We're on a mini vacation in Biloxi and woke yesterday kinda late from the jet lag. Turned on Motor Trend tv and the show that was about to start was Classic Car Studios in St Louis had a guy show up with a red 2003 SSR to be taken from "cute" to Mean. That did a fantastic job on the front grill...
