New SSR

My friends dad won a chance to buy one of these vehicles, and he test drove it and fell in love with it. I have to say this is very nice vehicle, on the inside and out. The dual exhaust sounds very good. Overall a nice vehicle, too rich for my blood though. Even though I like Chevy's, I would like to see Ford bring back one those 32 Fords. Just like the ones in Street Rodder magazine.

I hope Ford doesn't waste their money on an SSR type thing.

I would like them to see them spend more money on making their current lineup more reliable.

The GT project is a good investment, right?

I like the GT. I also think it will be a money maker if it has good quality and reliability.

If they sell 10 of them then it makes a million dollars. I like the Ford GT, but it's just as unattainable as a Lamborghini or a Ferrari, to us po` folk, anyway.

New SSR

I thought when they designed it, it was suppose to be a modern interpretation of the 53 Chevy truck and it turns out looking like an uglier 48 Studebaker P/U?

1 has already turned up at an auction. It brought................




TWO-HUNDRED AND FIFTY THOUSAND DOLLARS!

That's $110,000 over sticker, BTW. Ford has told us that our dealership will get one. Problem is, we already have 3 customers that want it. 3 legitimate buyers that have the bucks to buy a $140,000 car, here in little ol' Rochester, NY. Can you believe that?

Sorry, I didn't mean they would make a million dollars profit, I meant that's just what the cars would bring. I doubt they'd come even close to breaking even if they just sold ten.

I thought the chevy SSR was cool lookin' in the pictures, but I recently saw one up close and I wasn't too impressed. Mostly I think they're a waste since they cost a lot more than a lightning but aren't as fast.

I'd take one if someone gave it too me for free though
