These are what I'd buy.
They're light weight, and can be had both in a short as well as a long ramp in case your car sits low, and, they can be had in a two-piece design so you can drive the car onto the ramps, then remove the sloped portion giving much better access to the underside of the car from the side.

If you do a lot of your own maintenance, the Race Ramps would be a great investment. You can raise all four wheels up to 14" off the ground at once, then remove the ramps and center sections to move around freely. They're dense foam, but very lightweight. You could store them in the attic of the garage without any worries.

Can I ask why ramps would be the choice over a floor jack?

because it's very difficult to get a floor jack to a good point to lift the vehicle, especially if it's lowered, but it's even an issue on a regular SS unless you have a very good low profile jack. I used to drive onto small concrete "plates" I had to give the front of the car just that little bit more height so I could get my jack where it needed to go. I'm definitely getting good ramps when I can.

Sweet! I bought some ramps at Auto zone a while back and they work fine except that my SS has the ground effects and I have to drive on to 2 x 6 to get the front spoiler to clear the front of the ramp.

Gotta love the people that feel the need to showoff. The OP asked about ramps, so the pictures of your lifts aren't needed.

Raceramps are a great product! I have a set of their "flat stoppers" to park my car on in the garrage. Their ramps for loading trailers are also handy. I would love a set of the full on service/maintenance/track ramps.

They are pricey, but you get what you pay for. I'd trust the Race Ramps over the cheap-o Rhinos. Mine are great, and I've used them on many occasions. Even used them when installing my headers. Here's a few pics...
