Hmmm, "Super Sport" might look pretty cool on a '10 Camaro!
Hope you don't mind, but I AM stealing that idea. It would look awesome.
The salesman at my dealer seemed a little irritated that in the delivery notes I put DO NOT PUT A DEALER EMBLEM ON THIS CAR!

You know how to change your own oil???? WHOA! thats soooo coool! u need to let us in on the secret doood!

With posts like that, I don't think I'd be so fast to brag...Go home troll(s).

I would love to tell you what I think about your kind, but I would SOOO get banned.

[edit] Disregard the above, I just got thru reading your old posts. I didn't realize you were...a mustang owner. Let me know if my words are too big for you to understand, I'll dumb my posts down for you

It worries me that someone considering an SS does not know what one is. Its like asking, what is a GT-R, how many HP does a GT500 have, or how much is a Lambo?

If ya gotta ask!

I went into the garage and found this on the rear quarter panel of an old '66 Chevy II


Is that what you're talking about?
Guess SS means Super Sport on there.
Does that mean the RS on the Camaro means Rally Sport?

this is very entertaining.
it is really amazing how many folks you can fish in by "seemingly" asking a silly question. ( not to offend folks that really didn't know)

i really appreciate all of the folks that gave a serious answer because you are the genuine article. bowtie thru and thru.

i also appreciate all the folks who kept it light and humorous!

I know what the real SS is.
i built my first chevy engine (i'm sure like a lot of you) before i was old enough to have a drivers license... i bleed bowties.

oh yea... Super Sexy and Really Sexy are my favs.

It doesn't stand for anything. It's just Cadillac's performance division. What does GXP stand for on Pontiacs?

By the way, CTS Coupe and CTS Wagon don't make any sense whatsoever...Catera Touring Sedan Coupe...

Stop screwin' with the guy peoples!
It stands for "Super Sexy" and yes, it IS an option
And before anyone asks, RS stands for "Really Sexy", but only on Chevy vehicles.
