When the Chevrolet SSR debuted in 2003 the retro-inspired convertible pickup truck had a love-it or hate-it design. Opinions leaned toward the latter but those who bought one can’t stop raving about them. It can be argued that the SSR’s unique styling was ahead of its time and has potential to become a collectors car. So it boggles the mind when someone takes something as unique as the SSR and transforms it into a dinosaur – literally.
Dubbed the DinoSSauR this fiberglass monster could win any Halloween costume contest. On the road it could scare on-coming traffic with its jagged-toothed grill, evil headlights, and a snout ready to breath fire. Even those pulling up behind this beast would keep their distance once they see the prehistoric tailgate. This is one pickup that would get lot of attention and elicit emotions not intended by the base SSR. Just as most buyers steered clear of the original SSR many would do the same with the DinoSSauR.
For those willing to take the risk, or simply prefer unique things this transformer is available for purchase from North Freeway Hyundai in Texas, a self-proclaimed largest SSR dealer in the country. You can view the DinoSSauR listing at cars.com.
