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.

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?

Hmmm so what kind of prize did you have in mind? :jester


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
4) Getting Chervolet to produce an Orange SSR for 07.
