* the engine is special. real special. The heads are from the Cross fire
Camaro, the cam from the L-81 Vette. The exhaust is specific to the SS

These things are what makes an SS an SS.
These are real special cars. The *LAST* GM full frame RWD carbed car made.
These are destined to be collectable and are now. At the Super Chevy show
in Maple Grove this summer, there were about 30 SS's and they were a big
hit. I had 3 people wanting to buy mine.
