What does "SS" stand for?

SHORT STRIPES maybe?

DANG, cant a guy have a LITTLE fun?

i guess i just got tired of hearing about ABL.

to me, the short stripes have a MUCH bigger visual distraction than ABL.
I do intend to go aftermarket... but would much rather have REAL STRIPES on my window sticker.

i love this car, just had to vent and try to see if anyone would buy that someone didnt know what SS was.

The "SS" moniker was introduced by Chevrolet in the early '60's with the Nova, Chevelle Malibu, Impala and ultimately the Camaro. The Super Sport option generally added engine chrome, special wheels or wheel covers and tires, suspension, bucket seats and a console, whether automaic or manual (although not always). Initially you could get a 6 cyl engine in an SS but later the SS was relegated to only V8's, whether big or small block.

IN response to your intentions with the thread and my subsequent response, I offer So Sorry.

Yes, we may be a "little tense" as it seems to us lately that there's more and more whining, complaining, etc., going on, and "we" (the mods/admins) just want everyone to enjoy the site and have a good time.


So, I offer you So Sorry.
Ed
