How many Chevy SSs have you owned?

42 posts in this topic

None of the three Chevies I've owned were 'SS' models, though one was a 'Z' model ('92 Cavalier Z24).

1968 Chevelle SS Bench seat 4 speed one of the first built

1972 GMC Sprint SP Rare [ GMC's version of the El Camino SS big block]

2008 HHR SS

Funny how the 2.0 4 cylinder is the fastest of all of them.

Mom and dad have an 07 Monte Carlo SS, and used to have an 89 Camaro RS. The only thing I have is a 94 Z28.

ZERO.

That having been said my 1968 Camaro had enough balls

to blow the doors off of most stock SS anythings. :metal:

And two SS's

I had a weak SS as well, 2006 maibu SS sedan, not really worthy of the SS name but still a decent car with some above average midsize fwd performance for the day at a good price.

Maybe we should change this to who owned a SS that cold do at least a sum 15 sec in the 1/4 mile stock. That way we could seperate the sticker cars from the real SS. LOL! There are a lot of SS I would not consider much of a performance car in the 80's and 90's. Chevy got pretty liberal with the SS emblem for a while.

Being 27 with a full time job i am only now finding disposable invcome to throw at vehicles... a house payment is in the near future though so i doubt i will be in this situation long enough to aquire one.

:iroc-dragster:

hehe whoops kinda makes me feel bad that is said FTL about it.

I had a ZQ8 GMC SLS. THe GMC version of the SS. It was a dog of a 4.3 but it was fun on off ramps. I loved that truck.

I just feel bad that most people here have owned the power poor versions of the SS and missed on the Powerful SS of the past.

I still lover the 80's SS Monte amd El Camino and most of the others Though there were a couple I could have done without.

They made some cool cars just it was a shame Chevy did not use the engines they could have used. Imagine a Monte SS with a TPI 350 VS a 305 Carb. It is like the SS always got the short end till the GMPD got ahold of tuning them a couple years ago starting with the Trailblazer SS.

true, and they keep getting further and further out of reach every year.

my sisters fiance has an s10 extreme 4.3 his major complaint is that his doesnt have a posi but all the 4cyl he sees has them hehe.

my SS454 wasnt a barn burner by any means, and had i kept it i was planning a head swap and possibly a procharger. but it could hold its own against many a car... up till 55mph cause thats when final gear kicked in... stupid TH400 <_<
