Best Story/Comments about your SS.

I’ll go first...

i am standing outside with my friend looking at the SS in front of an office building. a guy walks out see use staring and talking about the vents on then Brembo rotors. then stops mid way by the car and says “yeah those are interesting, i wonder how that design works” obviously this guy is some sort of car guy.

then all three of us start talking about it and then he asks. “what is this?” looking at the Holden Badge on the rear trunk lid. i said well "it is a Chevy SS". he looks confused. i proceed to tell him. “well this badge is a Holden Badge and this car is made in Australia and they bring it in as a Chevy SS” then all of a sudden he has a light bulb turn on! he says "like the GTO and G8?!" Ding! Ding! Ding! He then says “Wow this is a cool car! What is it powered by?” I say “LS3” he says while almost jumping up and down “WOW are you kidding me! That is awesome!” he proceeds to talk to me about it for the next 15-20 mins. Lol!

I think Chevrolet needs to pay me commission for this pitch on the SS! Lol!

Guy walks up to me at a gas station and says how do you like your new Malibu? I politely reminded him it is a new Chevy SS, made in Australia like the G8 was. He said the what? I finished fueling and went on my way.

Auto-started my SS in a shopping center parking lot on Black Friday weekend.

The biggest, baddest looking dude in the parking lot immediately perked up and jogged over to my car, waiting for me.

"That's a Holden Commodore, rebadged as an SS, ain't it?" "That's a great car, congratulations".

Who knew. The only other reactions I have are long looks from "kinda" car guys who probably recognize the rwd stance and aren't quite sure what it is.

Given rides to people who are always impressed.

My (wonderful, fantastic, loving) wife asked me the other day when we were driving what those things were in the wheels.
I drew a blank. "What?", I asked.
"You know the horizontal things, on the wheels", she replied.
"Huh?", I wittily replied, "what are you talking about"?
"They must be some kind of wheel locks", my wife said.

When we got out of the car she showed me....

The Brembo brakes!

Just so you know my wife is a gourmet cook (I didn't get this way by accident) an accomplished baker, a domestic Goddess and my fearless partner in life. She is just not much of a mechanic.... :giggle:

On the Malibu comment, I walk up behind a white car on the dealer lot which I swear is an SS ......... nope, it was a freaking Malibu. Obviously no mistaking them from the front, but I was fooled when looking from the back.
I mistook it from the front.

I mistake it for a Malibu from the front, and an Impala from the back.

From the side there is no mistaking.

I don't care, because it still isn't as ugly as a Dodge and I like subtlety.

Most of us here on these boards know significantly more about the car than the sales staff does. My salesman is honest with me, he has never seen one and doesn't bullshit me about it. That's why I go back to him. If I had the above dude, I'd go somewhere else.

I showed a sales person the auto park feature on one. He thought he knew all about the car. Should have seen the look on his face!
I love it when I call to see if they have an SS and the operator says "the what???"

When taking my car to get tint this is what happened:

Sale guy: what kind of car is it?
Me: Chevy SS, 2014.
Sales guys: okay (starts to write), SS what?
Me: Just an SS
Sales guy: (puzzled looked) let me take a look (walks outside)...GOD **** that's a nice car! It's a SS what?
Me: Just an SS, it's a new car in its first model year.
Sales guy: okay okay, wow that's nice...

Car is dropped off...come back at the end of the day.

Sales guy: welcome back, dude that car is amazing. We tint almost all the exotic cars in town and let me tell you this car is as good if not better inside and out than any Benz, BMW, and I kid you not Maserati. I can keep going but this is a very nice car. We are going to do the full tint for $75 for you man. Great looking car.
Me: well thank you and I have to agree with you, I love the car.
Sales guy: oh and the sound on start up...wow is that stock?
Me: yep
Sales guy: well please bring it back if you scrap the tint or anything we will replace it for free. Thanks for the business.
Me: thank you, and thanks again for the discount.
Sales woman: (stops me as I am walking out)very nice car, want to go to lunch?
Me: I would love to but need to get back to the wife and kids, maybe another time.

Don't you love it when you know more about the car you are buying than the guy who is selling it to you?

Not really. It's actually depressing, because it happens most of the time. :(

I actually love it when they know something I don't. Shows they know their stuff.
