Susan's 2005 SSR

LS2 400hp

Susan wasn't satisfied with the aqua grill treatment and so we changed it to chrome. We both like it better now.

Susan is having some custom work done to her SSR. This is the first step with more to come next week......Susan wasn't satisfied with the aqua grill treatment and so we changed it to chrome. We both like it better now.

I was able to capture the reflection of the cherry blossoms on the tonneau of Susan's SSR. It almost looks as if she's hauling a load of flowers.

We have at least one car show featuring 200+ cars within a 100 mile radius every week (weather permitting). It's amazing. We can't make all of them, but it's fun times when we do.

I'm very happy for you Dave with all the car shows you can go it whenever you want. Your His and Hers SSRs must be a Big hit at the shows!

Looking forward to seeing the custom work on Susan's SSR. It's a very unique truck. Semper Fi my friend. Mario

I see a yellow SSR next to your car. What a coincidence a yellow SSR next to yours!

Are you going to have your SSR repainted yellow or are you OK with your current color?

I'm keeping mine black for sure. The yellow SSR belongs to a local friend that frequents the shows.

Good I like the black SSR you have. Very classy.

Evidently the judges like it also. She trophied first time out at a giant car show this weekend. (250+ cars in the show). She's a happy camper now.
