Talking Looky what I got to drive today =)

Hey guys! So I was at the shop for a while today & I'm sitting in the office just chilling & talking to my dad when I see a red vehicle in the reflection of a frame pull up in front of the shop. I just up instantly & went to the door & this was sitting right outside

I was like omg! how gorgeous! I have always been a fan of the SSR. Yes it isn't a real truck & I know a lot of people don't like them but they seem like they would be fun lil weekend trucks. Our friend/good customer Joe (i think thats his name at least lol) jumps outta it & sees me starin at it & is like no you can not have it lol. & so we starting talking & he said that he'* thinking about selling it since he also has this car

I told him that i would soo buy it if i had the money but then I discovered it was a manual & was like well it wouldn't matter bcuz idk how to drive a manual really. Well we started talking again & he was like you wanna go for a ride (since i have never rode in one before). & lemme tell ya, this lil truck has some kick ignoring the fact that it has a LS2 400+hp engine in it with a 6-speed trans lol. Then down the road he pulls over & lets me try to drive it! Omg I was sooo nervous bcuz I didn't wanna screw up the trans if he was trying to sell it.

Well I only killed it 3 times lol. I have problems starting to take off bcuz I always forget that you gotta take the brake off & then ease off the clutch & ease into the gas, so I killed it twice when I was trying to take off & then I killed it right whenever I was parking (once again with the whole brake-clutch situation) but when I was actually driving the clutch & all didn't bother me, except for the fact that I shifted into 5th instead of 3rd on accident bcuz the gears are all sooooo close to each other. But all in all it was a fun experience & makes me wanna perfect driving a standard & it also makes me wanna SSR even more!

Another thing, it has reallyyyy nice interior & i'm really kickin myself for not taking a pic of it =( he said hes coming to the shop on wednesday so hopefully he'll bring out the SSR again it also had a torque gauge in it & now I'm thinking that I may wanna invest in one of those eventually bcuz idk i think it'* a neat gauge to have & i never thought about it before.

But anyway I'm done with my lil excitement rant

Yeah they sound pretty mean. Never was a huge fan of the body styling, but they have a decent amount of power and a great sound. I'm sure they are a blast to drive.
