I used to think the SSR was unique....until I ran across this.... :mf_boff: Sorry if I totally missed this, I seem to recall mention of it once somewhere.

I wonder what the guys who designed this back in 1997 think about Chevy's SSR....?

Now get this:

Displacement 8000 cc | 488.2 cu in. | 8.0 L.

0-60 mph 3.9 sec

Horsepower 640 BHP @ 5800 RPM

Torque 530 Ft-lbs @ 4000 RPM

Yeah, I'd be in line for an SSR with those numbers!

The Sidewinder made its debut at the 1996 SEMA show to rave reviews and made the rounds of all the major 1997 auto shows, but it's probably a little too radical to see life as a production vehicle.
"Probably" indeed.

The SSR looks WAY different than that thing. It's like saying classic Ford and Chevy trucks look the same. But if you're talking about convertible retro truck roadsters in general then I see your point.

The engine was a NA?
