I AM GOING TO TRY THIS AGAIN HOPE IT STICKS THIS TIME;
THIS IS A LETTER FROM THE OFFICE OF THE GENERAL MANAGER CHEVROLET MOTOR DIVISON TO CHEVROLET DEALERS.

DATED April 26,2004

I hope you receive this pewter SSR as a powerful reminder of the wave of new Chevy products that will be arriving at your dealership over the next two years. Ten new cars and trucks in twenty mounths-the most in our history-are only the beginning! There are many more introductions right behind.

As I mentioned at Genuine Leaders in West Palm Beach,there are only 500 pewter SSRs in existence,making this a very exclusive,very collectible reminder of your accomplishments as a 2003 Genuine Leader.

I trust this award will find an honored place in your dealership and encourage you to strive for even greater performance in 2004,in order to join us at the beautiful LaQuinta Resort in Palm Springs ,California on April 25-28,2005, the location of next years,s Genuine Leaders.

With all the momentum on our side,I believe it,s a great time to be with the chevy team.Continued success in 2004,as we build toward our goalds of 3 million sales.18% market share and industry leadership!

Sincerely,
W.W.Brent Dewar

That was weird Ken. Your letter just disappeared. I'll quote it this time so it can't go anywhere. It seems these pewters are going to be a tad difficult to track down.

Hey Jim. From Bob's letter you can do a pile of deducing but won't know for sure who of these guys has which and as some were multiple signatories did they receive one for each one they signed on? My guess would be no. This is a list of signatories I extricated from my VIN Registry list.
This first group likely takes care of
#1 with GM Historical Signature #1
#101 Rick Waggoner
#201 Robert Lutz
#301 Gary Cowger
#401 Wayne Cherry

The second group is "quite" likely
#2 with SAE Foundation Signature #2
#102 David Treadwell
The other 4 Signatories all received a Pewter for #1.

Did you click on the above post? It says they were given out to Craft Center employee's. :skep I never heard that one before!

:black: :)
I did some research (phone call) over this past weekend. I talked to a GM employee who worked at the Lansing Craft Center during the time the SSR's were built there. He said to his knowledge the pewter desk plaque were never issued/offered to the employee's at the LCC plant!

This is a person I would very much like to speak with regarding some very old posts of his. He is no longer active in the Membership List. Anyone know of him or how I might find him?

I don't remember were he was from anymore but he was always so negative about the SSR. Was glad he sold his and left the group.

:agree

I remembered the time he had left the diecast model on the back of his SSR and took off down the road from our hotel.... next thing I saw was his yellow diecast SSR flying and then rolling head over heals down the road behind his SSR. What a sight indeed. :rolleyes: :crazy

All of a sudden he slams on the breaks and stops right in the middle of the roadway and then he chases the SSR diecast down the road to grab it and nearly gets killed by the on coming traffic. :eek :banghead

Yes he was a little bit different ... and at least to me anyways was a loner and not a very sociable kind of guy at all. :skep

Well certainly not like us wild and crazy folks right Scott & Doug? :glol

One big difference here ... I was never crazy enough to get out of the truck in the middle of the roadway to pick up that stuff.

I was fortunate to have another SSR fanatic friend do that for me. ;) :lol

Doug, aren't you suppose to be at work? :lol

:black: :)
Scott Doug is the BOSS so he can surf the net anytime he likes... :nono :D :glol
