2004 Chevrolet SSR 2dr Regular Cab Convertible LS Rwd SB (5.3L 8cyl 4A)
Okay, okay, I waited and waited for
this car, and worried that it would
never meet my expectations. The first
wait was concept to production, then
Chevy's production problems, and lastly
couldn't get a ship and build date--BUT-
-now that it's here, I CAN'T STOP
SMILING!! The SSr is gorgeous.
Sure, the truck's not a rocket, but
on crowded roads,who needs speed,
anyways? The truck can't tow, but this
isn't a workhorse, it's for stylin'.
And, with that throaty rumble when you
step on the gas, it's all about stylin'.
Think I'll buy another color...
The throaty rumble, no wait, the curved
outboard fenders, no wait, the hardtop
droptop, no wait, the seats, no wait,
the clean front and rear end, no wait,
I like it all
1) Drop the weight (polymers?)
2) Improve the suspension for towing
3) Add a tiptronic style transmission
4) Factory flame paint!!
