Lets Roll

Per my dealer:

Chevrolet to produce 2003's until 12/31.

He also confirmed that trucks are now shipping from the Craft Centre.

So, where is the '03 SSR club going to meet in mass first?

***How 'bout San Simeon, California (Hearst Castle) - we'd be able to convince the staff to let us drive up the hill to the 'ranch' for a photo shoot!***

they really are shipping

I have the latest info from the marketing director at Chevy. Here are some excerpts from a memo that my dealership received today:

The SSR has been one of the most anxiously awaited vehicles in the entire automotive industry. Well, the wait is over. I am extremely excited to inform the Chevy team that we have begun shipping SSRs and they should begin arriving in dealerships by the end of October....
I want to bring you up to speed on the current SSR production plans and on the estimated allocation of product. We do anticipate that this year we will produce approximately 3,500
SSRs as 2003 year models, and plan to convert to the 2004 model year on January 1, 2004....Start of production has occurred later than we anticipated, therefore, it may be necessary to further shift some of the previously estimated 2003 model year allocation into the 2004 model year. However, a particular dealer's overall quantity is expected to remain the same....
Again, I am extremely excited to be informing you that SSRs are now on their way....

RICK BALDICK
MARKETING DIRECTOR

IS THIS GOOD NEWS OR WHAT?:cheers

get real people. We are not going to drive this new car over 2000 miles from the midwest to Vagas! It would be better to have regional meets. Like one in Chicago (shameless self promotion) for the midwest, one in NY for the Northeast, one in LA for the Southwest, one in Miami for the Southeast, one in Denver for the mountains, and one in Seatle for the Northwest. Then we can all share pictures online.

You can't enjoy these or any other cars and trucks without driving them, and what better of a trip than across the USA.

Gee, I think I'll leave mine in the garage all year and take pictures of it to share with my friends what a nice truck I have. :lol

Per an in plant contact, (whom I promised I would not release her name or phone number) SSR's will start shipping by end of this week, 10/24. A very, very, very few have shipped refferred to as "Commerce" vehicles, one of which is here in Grand Rapids. This lady is "THE LADY" who imputs the order numbers and told me mine is to be in body shop by weeks end then takes 10 days until it ships!!!!!! Finally!!! I was correct when I saw more trucks in their lot on the 18th vs. the 1oth as they have not begun shipping via Leasway Trucking.

I don't doubt what you are saying, but I would rather believe
Ron when he claims to have seen two trucks leaving the depot.
Please don't make me wait any longer. :puke

Both of the trucks I seen had 1 SSR on them with some of the new Cadillac SRX on them too! FYI!

After my test drive yesterday in vin # 163 driven to me in Grand Rapids by in plant worker who won an overnite with a red SSR, I was informed of 50 a day being produced 7 days a week with 3500 as the year end goal. 100's are awaiting loading at the Lansing vehicle staging area which includes many other GM models. More vehicles are produced in Lansing Mi,. than any other US city so SSR's are shipping with other GM vehicles. Keep your eyes on these haulers on the highways! Should have mine within 2 weeks as being built as I write this!!
