I'm not critising the SSR as a vehicle in it's own right, but I'm not really sure if I see the point in it. Most of the potential customers would be hot rodders, but for the price of it - about 30k new, around 20k now you could get quite a decent real rod. I could be missing the point though. I would have prefered if Chevrolet had buit a modern interpretation of the Elcamino instead.
Must say the custom version with the early bodypanels is a vast improvement.
I do like the new Camaro though which is the best looking one since the 70s.

Just found this


The latest Buick is the Allure, which is currently being sold in Canadian locations only. There are also other newer models launched by Buick.

So.............
Lepu finally made it big on the other side of the pond.
Or at least I assume thats who Chevrolet employed to build those " joke " Lepu special rear arches.

I saw one last week in silver & gawped at it with my mouth wide open.
Luckily the driver didnt clock me doing it as he may have thought I was struck speechless with his coolness in car choice.
Err no.........

Sorry but that is fucking god awfull.

The production version of " The Gangster Car " !!!

The PT Cruiser may be a bit laughable but........
This has been designed by a 5 year old.

I am a fan of Retro but this really does take the piss :incheek:

Those new Trans Am's look cool, body kits for '10 Camaro's already ? :eek: I read about the bull nose, but didnt realise they had produced one.

As for the PT's, SSR's ect . . .you can make an old car look new, but trying to make a new car look old ? :tdown: Nah, dont work for me.
