So last night I unveiled my new truck to a friend. I asked her if she'd like to
' Go for a Ride '. I told her to wear a warm coat, I'd pick her up in 20 minutes.

I pulled up, with the top up, and she got in.
Already loving it... she asked what the warm coat was for. ( This part I love, cuz I'm giddy as a school girl ). I told her this truck was Special. It had a Special feature.
And I proceeded to let the top down.
She went nuts. Never seen a convertible truck before.

We drove along the coast as the sun was setting & had a quick bite on the wharf.
( I live 20 minutes to the beach )
Under the moonlight I could see places that needed to be wiped, so I got out my clothe.
( was a fav T-shirt, now my softest detailing rag
And we talked at I wiped.

She said ... " Riding in your truck tonight, was like being on a Magic Carpet Ride "

She's right.

Great story...and may your Permagrin never fade! I've had my '05 for 7 years now, and I still get a kick out of putting the top down for folks who've never seen an SSR. Welcome!

Beautiful truck. You picked a nice one.
I like the "SSR" on the front air dam, hadn't seen that before.

I guess the first trucks in your "garage" are ones you looked at before falling in love with the one you bought?

Thanks. Call me Crazy, but I'm thinking about driving back to Little Rock Ca.
( a 5+ hour drive from me.) To test drive that Silver '05 that was for sale. I didn't have time before, we were behind the eightball on that trip & needed to make up some miles to get my daughter home on time. But if I go back, I'll stay the night so I won't be rushed & I can test drive it for fun.
6 speed & they said they bumped it up to 415 horsepower. Im sure to chirp the tires on that 1. - Big Smokin Smile.

Oh yea! I remember the day when it came to me, driving home through the Colorado Rockies from the Colorado Springs Rally in 2010. Just like a "Magic Carpet Ride". First thing I did when I got home was to change my SSR Fanatic handle.
Still can't get enough!
