2004 Chevrolet SSR 2dr Regular Cab Convertible LS Rwd SB (5.3L 8cyl 4A)
Got my dream vehicle this January-a yellow SSR. Always wanted one, but the expense (they ARE pricey) was holding me back. A local dealer found me an '04 SSR with 900 miles. Low mileage ones are available-since these are NOT daily drivers. New ones go for 50k, but mine was a little over half that. True,mine has the 5.3 v8-the new ones have the 6 litre Corvette motor, but they look identical, and my truck has no problem in the power department. The truck gets lots of attention,from its 'old school" looks, bright paint, and the throaty growl of the V8-if you don't want to attract a lot of attention-don't buy one of these-gets smiles, and thumbs up everywhere I take it.
The Bose stereo,heated seats, big oversized shifter/console. The unique retractable hardtop. The rear storage area is big, and accessed by a button- no handles-very cool. Whole package reminds you of a fat-fendered 3 window coupe street-rod.
Rear visibilty is the only complaint I have. The small side mirrors LOOK cool, but you can't see well with them. The rear of the truck is 'jacked up' slightly, so backing up is a very hairy process-you DON'T want to bump anything with such an expensive vehicle like this-and you can't really see behind
