Before I came here & learned the term
" Permagrin "... I kept wondering why my cheeks were hurting. They were aching from smiling all the time & my throat was Sore from
All the ' Whoo Hoo, this is Great '
All the ' Dang, this is Fun '
All the ' Gawd you're a Beautiful car.'
And the ' I'm Lovin this **** '

So know that I know what to call that feeling I'm having.... please tell me who coined that term.

Permagrin? Well, it has been around for many years, long before the SSR came out.

Urban Dictionary - "Permagrin" Definition (best, there are many)
A long lasting smile usually caused by the frivolous feel after a great session of sex. A great partner is required to achieve this higher plane of sexual satisfaction. Accompanies lightheadedness, temporary speech impediment, being off balance, carelessness, blurred vision, and general sexual "outbursts" ".

Movie - 2009 - "Permagrin"
Storyline - After his most prized possession is stolen, a timid yet eager young man must confront each of his eccentric family members in order to reclaim what belongs to him.

Sunglasses - "Permagrin"
Perma Grin

Hey "Dragon" I like that Urban Dictionary description best ... had a few of those back in the 50's in the back seat and front seat too in my 55 Coral and Shadow Gray Chevy. From 17 to 22 I had a lot of Permagrins. tennesseecozydog ps Couldn't find that word in The American College Dictionary (dated 1955) :ssr

Don't know (or really care) where it originated, all I know is, almost seven years later, I still get that 'Permagrin' every time I drive her or show her off to folks who've never seen one.
It's not just about the SSR driving experience, for me, either...the fellow SSR Fanatics:laugh: family we've gained keeps that grin on our faces!

This is the link to the start of Permagrin here!!!!!! Permagrin link beginning here07/09/2006
Well it's the first I can find !!!!!!!!!!! :grin2:
Good find, I searched a little but know the ones I found were way too new so that is why I started being silly with it. It's been a word used for many things but in our case it very well describes the feeling!

I have been here since December 2014 and it was here long before that. It goes way back.

But..... hdflstf stated: "Welcome from HB. It good that you already understand the permagrin concept" which could imply that he has used and or heard the word before... A very interesting trivia question!
