The all new 2009 SSR

Please view the 2009 SSR’s now on display.

Please do not post on this thread till after judging results have been posted.
Our members where asked to build models of the SSR in this 2009 Forum Contest.

They could build stock or custom, but asked to make the finished models look as realistic as possible. They all did a great job.

ONE = Delma Lou

This is a 2004 Ricochet Silver SSR all stock like my real one, I have added a little metal flake to make it sparkle and it was build by a 66 year old grandmother of 4. I think you are never to old to play with fast trucks

TWO = AutoDan
The model is painted with the Ultra Violet: purple: color, the engine compartment is detailed with painted engine cover and air cleaner housing, the plug wires are also painted and mass air flow sensor housing, fuse panel box and coolant bottle and brake master cylinder. The truck also has a wind suppressor and running boards custom made and color matched to the factory colors. The exhaust is the right color and stock configuration, with 5" tips. The fuel door is chrome and the rear end cover is aluminum in color. The sway bar tag and rear shocks are the correct color.

FOUR = Tugboat

Here is the first, and possibly only, scale model of the beautiful Aqua Blur SSR. A rare SSR fact not known my many, (as I am making this up), there was one 2004 SSR painted Aqua Blur. It was never released for sale, as anyone wanting this colour would only want the LS2 motor. This model is a true reproduction of this one rare car and cherished by its owner, who is the proud owner of a 2005 Aqua Blur SSR. Given the rarity and quality of this model, it is not for sale. The model can be viewed at numerous car shows and SSR gatherings hosted by the SSR Fanantic Northwest Chapter.

FIVE = Jgrden

This Black Silk had its right front wheel hub rebuilt after the rotor had to be replaced since it welded itself into the wrong position (moved while drying).
Noticed that the oil pan is missing. It was left on the frying table after being painted.
Windshield is splattered with bugs from going top fast. The finish is pitted from following a dirt truck too close. Damned Texas dirt trucks.
Bottom has been undercoated to protect it against salt when we visit Florida, so it is all black.

ELEVEN = Rebel

My build is my attempt to build clean smooth look.

Paint is LT. Topaz (8801550) over GM Redfire (CDS GM5020) on a “Jimmy Flintstone SSR delivery body”.

Interior is done in Sand Beige (DSFM247)

No side mirrors, also the side-marker lights where filled in along with all lower body seams.

Engine is 427ci. with Kinsler fuel injection, from another kit.

Windows are made from package plastic (Christmas bulb box) with window tint added.
White out, for paper was used to give the “white wash look” on the windows.

Wheels and tires yet from another kit, gives the stance I would attempt to get on a full size SSR delivery.

This delivery would haul Fanaticville auto parts on week days, and haul azz on the strip Sunday, Sunday, Sunday!
