Been lurking here several months now, thanks to all for the insights on all aspects of the SSR. This site was a HUGE help in us making our decision and deal!!

We got #11307 which has been sitting on the lot for months, Ultra Violet with 145 miles on the clock, 1 SB package and chrome factory rims (on the way). Definitely not as quick as our '02 Lighting but MUCH cooler :cool and a blast to drive.

Any other fanatics in south OC, Ca?

Wheels

Tell the dealer you will take the wheels off at home and bring him just the wheels.

That way you can get familiar with your new toy while waiting for the chrome rims.

I know I would hate to leave mine for two weeks without being able to do something with it (polish, wax, clean, listen to radio, play with the buttons, or just plain look at it).

If it was me I'd wait untill this fall and have the wheels chromed. No one would ever know the difference! Besides they may have some cores by then. Just an idea. :thumbs

I agree with Scott0168, wait for chrome wheels to become available. This way you can check the wheel quality before accepting them and you won't be without your SSR. All chrome shops don't do quality work. Now that your aboard, where are you located?

Jury's still out, dealer's workin' the angles (personal friend) so hopefully we're not up on jack stands in the garage for a while.

Located in Lake Forest Fred, near Mission Viejo and Irvine.

Is there a So Cal club set up yet? We had a lot of fun in a Corvette club in what seems like eons ago, had a '63 and a '75.

Keep an eye on the Pacific section of the forum. Quick meets are scheduled there...

You won't want to miss the second annual Generals Highway Roadster Run next April - we had a dozen SSR's make that drive last month.

Where are some pictures of your Roadster? :thumbs

Another local here in HB.
No club set up in OC yet, but they have one out in Riverside I think. Seems like we might have enough to set up an OC group.

There seems to be a SSR club forming out of Tamecula, but it hasn't come together yet. Llogger will probably pull us into a club soon. See you in one of the local runs soon. Enjoy the toy. Fred

The dealer is on his way to pick me up to take me back to get my 2005 Aqua Blurr automatic. This time I am doing the deal. About $1500 under sticker. I got them to throw in the running boards as we were $900 apart. It has been a long five months but it is finally over. I was beggining to think it would not happen. Now it is Z06Z16's turn. :) :) :) :)

I have my had my Vette serviced at Hibbard since 1989. (Actually 3 different ones) But I got my SSR at Classic Chevrolet in Anaheim. They were one of the few dealers with an 05 Aqua Blurr automatic. Classic still has Black, Yellow and Red left.
