The new Pacific Blue color is just what this vehicle needs. It's bright and slightly metallic. The color is virtually the same as #22U ( Bright Blue Metallic) that was on the 1995 GMC Sonoma. Just like the one I owned. This color looks fantastic with the Richochet Silver on top as a tutone. It is also great looking with Slingshot Yellow as the upper color.

Great Update!

HI Jim,

Thanks for sharing those new updates and features for 06 for our members and future buyers. I know that it is going to be some really neat colors with those two toned SSRs out there. I also like the new Pacific Blue! :thumbs

But, it seems that only Raider (silver/black) combo colors are factory offerings...

Too bad - there's too many raider fans out here - not all all of them are pleasant either... :mad

Chrome Package

Cruzned

The chrome package will most likely be offered as a Regular Production Option. I would believe that you would probably have to order the items one at a time by part # once production starts.

Probably would be a bit expensive.

Go Raiders!

The Raiders fans have a mystique similar to Eagles fans and it means they take their football seriously. If one of ya'll have a problem with that, go back to hopscotch or the closet! Black and silver will be gorgeous and has NOTHING to do with a lame opinion of real men. Now -- is the chrome pkg. going to include a chrome grille or just the one horizontal bar at the top through the headlights? ..ever heard about what happened to the kid that showed up for an Eagles game wearing a Dallas jersey? The predictable Phil. fans got behind him and relieved themselves all over his jersey. They have a jail and courtroom right there at the stadium! Convenient! Then there was the day Santa made a mistake and showed up...........

Chrome

I also thought that a chrome grill was going to be offered. Is that false? :confused

Also If the exterior and interior portions are going to be chrome does that mean the interior brushed chrome pieces will be metal? Will they be painted chrome? Does this include the shift bezel and knobs?

Does anyone know how the existing owners can get this done to their SSR's. It doesn't have to be through Chevy, just a great chromer and painter who could finish those details at a reasonable price.

Can anyone post a picture of what the new pacific blue color looks like, even if it is on another vehicle?

Can anyone tell me when Mark is going to give me my prize for correctly guessing the black and silver color scheme?

Chrome Grill

The picture I saw, showing the chrome pkg, did not show that the Grilles were chrome. I will keep checking.

Prize

Marc,

How about one of the following:

1) Adding a spell check function to the site for all the members to use.
2) Three Sets of hood rods (just like on the 05's). One set would go to me and
the other two sets would go to other owners of 03 and 04 SSR's. These
owners could be chosen at random by putting their screen names in a hat and
drawing them.
3) Setting us a 10-20 percent discount card for the members of this site. The card
would be honored at Cheverolet dealerships and on the online store for
merchandize.
4) Getting Chervolet to produce an Orange SSR for 07.

No pics, sorry. I'm sure it is at his house, where ever that is. As for it being guarded, probably by 4 armed men and 6 dogs.
