Thanks for the input on our purchase, I have learned a lot in the last couple of weeks. So to clear things up, as most of you already knew, this is not an SS car. I was confused by the VIN spec where several models are listed, 2 door coupe, 2 door sport coupe, convertible, wagon... My VIN decodes to a 2 door sport coupe which I assumed compared to a "2 door coupe" was an SS. If I understand correctly an SS is simply a trim package which would be identified on the trim tag. Looking at mine, it's not an SS. That said, this car is actually for my 10 year old son, he picked it and he paid for half of it with his savings. It does not run but the body is pretty straight so we have about 6 years to make it a bad *** ride!!!
