It would take a lot more than an elephant on the hood to slow down Jim G with all the performance mods he has done so far! Keep the performance pearls coming and if you have time, post a dyno curve with elephant hood ornament mod! :lol
After reading this it occured to me that a dancing elephant would make the perfect mascot for the SSR. Sure it's a little heavy, but like the dancing elephant, it's so much fun. :)

beer100: You've got a point there.

The SSR is very neat EXCEPT that it weighs so much. SSR & elephant might be an "honest" match.

Of course, honesty isn't always FUN . . .

A BULL would be more macho . . .

and, would better match some of our content here . . .

Hey Buffy, you got a really big BULL in your photo library?

Looks like pain to me...

Hey Jim,

I just had to say this ... referring to the photo in your Avatar area, the elephant's positioning and expression reminds me of someone having an excruciating time on the throne!

My daughter saw your avitar and asked it that elephant was really on the SSR ..... She would have believed me if I said yes, she can be blonde at times. :lol:lol

Dinosaur

I think that a dinosaur would be a better choice. Afterall the SSR is retro. However the only negative is that dinosaur in relation to anything can mean outdated. It would be really cool if the SSR was associated with the T-Rex. We would certainly get the attention of the young audience who likes dinosaurs.

As long as we're asking

I'm thinking it's more like a rhino. Head down, shoulders hunched up - power and it rumbles.

Great idea, especially the horn!

Of course, Chevy could then advertize it along with a rhino lining.

Buffy!! This can work!!

Just edit out the rhino's rear leg, and match his underside to the front slope of my hood, so that it looks like he is sitting (see, Marc, I kept it clean :) ) on my hood, and leaning out forward in anticipation, about to launch a 14 second quarter mile.

If you can do THAT, That will definitely be my new avatar!

That's the gleam from that fine looking Smokin' Asphalt - the classiest of colors.

Buffy: That is PERFECT!

You are a master electronic artisan.

Can you send me that image in the corredt size to use as my avatar?

This is THE ONE!

Great job there John... do me a favor though and take out that ugly looking lamp post in that photo... especially if Jim wants that for his Avatar... :thumbs
