    It is on the MSN home page. Looks like an old pickup front end with a rolled rear. 345 horsepower. Looks OK and will definately run /forums/images/icons/grin.gif

    Hell, I saw SSR and automatically thought tires. Haven't seen one on the road yet. When will they hit the showroom floor if they aren't out yet?

    I would like 1. The TV show Trucks had 1 on about 11/2 yrs ago. Looks real sharp. I like the fold down top. I hope it comes out in production. Super Sport Roadster.

    We're supposed to get one in, I'll keep my eyes open for it. Maybe, I'll get one of the salesman in a head-lock and swipe the keys for quick a ride.

    On a related note,
    Chevy is supposed to come out with a Silverado SS next year. The "normal" Silverado truck, with a 345 h.p. 6.0L and a 4L65 trans. It will have the same tow ratings as the standered truck and will be AWD (60/40 split).

    I think it's crazy,
    The worlds baddest muscle car, the 2002 camaro SS was canceled, and NOW they're comeing out with all these hot-rod trucks.
    What is up with that!?!??

    Lets see for the last two years I have been under Blazers in the middle of the desert. Guess I missed it somehow. Think that motor would fit in Butch??

    I live by the GM proving grounds and just saw one the other day. It was blue and sounded really really good. I almost hit a light pole trying to see it when it went by. Cool truck.
