You guys are too quick and knowledgeable....it's the Chevrolet SSR.

I'm still amazed this truck made it to production. I've always liked them.

I see a few around, they never fail to turn heads.

That's the SoCal speedshop SSR's interior. I think it was at SEMA a few years ago:

Well if you want to be technical, then yeah, it's the 2004 Chevrolet So-Cal SSR Bonneville SaltFlats.

In its own way, the SSR was a nice product. It just kinda missed the market. Too heavy, too fuel inefficient, and not a real truck.

I didn't like them at all when they first came out, but they ahve grown on me over time. One of our local Chevrolet dealers, BobMcDorman Chevrolet, has a couple of the first 10 SSR's built, and IIRC they both are purple or dark blue. It's been a few years since I've seen them.

This (SSR) was one of the first vehicles that convinced me GM might really be on the right track, because once I got over my initial dislike of the SSR I began to see that it was built to a really decently high standard of fit and finish, and that GM had put a lot of passion into it.

My fav. SSR moment is the GM ad where they run the SSR up onto the car carrier backwards after doing a 180.

I sat in one once and was amazed at the interior.

Wonderful quality and design. It was so unlike GM's

interior's of the time.

The whole vehicle seems to have a very high quality feel to it. Like I said, this is when I knew GM was coming "back"

I briefly drove an SSR to the gas station and back when I worked at the dealership, and it actually drives pretty well for how large it is, but it's too flashy for most people, I think. Plus, it's not as sporty as most convertibles and gets very poor fuel mileage.

Beautiful!

Chris

So agree with you.

It represents the GM I will always love.

The historical GM's prowess in striking design.

American design.

Especially in the brighter colors.

I like it in silver or black, more subtle given it's dynamic style.

I like the SSR, and never understood how people could hate it so much. Talk about an awesome cruiser and great collectible.

Yep...it was like driving a concept right off the stand at the autoshow.

It is the ultimate cruiser. It has drawing power to outmatch any exotic.

With all the doom and gloom it's nice to look back and see some of

these wonderful creations from GM.

I saw a bright blue SSR go rumbling past the other day...it's definitely grown on me...it's fascinating for it's outrageousness (hardtop convertible pickup!).
