Hello, I’m Karen Roselli, Mike Roselli’s mom. I daily drive a 2016 Chevrolet SS with magnetic ride and a manual transmission, which means I’m automatically cooler than 85 percent of Jalopnik’s staff. Nice to meet all of you.
If you are going car shopping this President’s weekend and have a hankering for a V8-powered muscle sedan, this will apparently be the last month your local dealer will be able to order you a Chevrolet SS before time runs out.
The Chevrolet SS was always an odd choice for Chevy’s entry in the top division of NASCAR, seeing as nobody—seriously, almost nobody—in the U.S. bought the thing. But it was a nice enthusiast car to have in NASCAR, racing alongside the vanilla Fusions and Camrys of the world. Sadly, this will be its last year.
With today’s news that the Chevrolet SS is laying down its final set of elevenses into the sunset after this year, we felt it appropriate to celebrate the true life and times of the Chevrolet SS—in tire smoke.
AutoGuide’s Craig Cole is as far from being Chris Harris’ Detroit-based cousin as its humanly possible, but he still explains perfectly why you should get a Chevrolet SS if you have the means.

We were burned before. The Pontiac Sport Truck was set to come to the US in 2009 only to have Pontiac die, killing the El Camino project as well. Now a local Australian newspaper claims ‘the pickup with an ego' is coming back. Oh please give us that sweet El Camino dope again.
As we've known for a while, Chevrolet is going to be bringing a rear-wheel drive sports sedan known as the SS to the US market for 2014.
"[T]he thrill of high performance driving is unmatched by anything that doesn't have rear-wheel drive, bags of torque and a nice transmission." That's why "Maximum" Bob Lutz thinks the Holden Commodore could bring the U.S. a "four-door Corvette."
