The automotive industry is constantly changing. The domestic industry here in the US has lagged behind foreign counterparts in the last couple of decades. That’s not to say that American cars aren’t innovative. There are a lot of innovations that the American automakers have contributed to the industry as a whole. And some of those go a bit unnoticed. True, some celebrities own truly elite American sports cars, but some also fall under the radar.
So were going to take a look at obscure American cars that you can still find from time to time. This includes notable additions such as the Chevy SSR roadster. These short-lived concept cars became a reality for quite a few owners. Read on as we take a look at some of the most obscure cars you can still find on the road today.
25: Chevrolet SSR
The Chevy SSR was a rather unique rendition of the modern El Camino. Around this period, GM had exited he pony car market and needed a halo car. The SSR had a lot going for it, especially when compared to the Plymouth Prowler. V8 power was standard on the SSR. But a lot of corners were cut when it came to interior quality and design. The bed of the truck was useless similar to the Lincoln Blackwood.
However, if you want a ‘sports truck’ unlike anything else on the road, this is it. The SSR is unique from the ground up. Somehow the design still manages to attract looks to this day. Even if the beak of the car is downright ugly. There are sure to be collectors of the SSR as time goes on.
