Chevy's SSR, on the surface, may not appear to be attractive to hot-rodders, since frankly it was heavy and underpowered in its original form. GM may have cured half of the problem by introducing the 390 HP LS2, but there's always more than one way to address a lack of horsepower, and car guys live for such a task. Differential manufacturer Tractech went the Magnacharger route with its 5.3 L SSR, getting 384 HP at the rear wheels. Then the company went down a path that might be described as a cross between retro and Pro Touring, yielding something that's closer to a vintage racing roadster than a novelty pickup truck. I'm digging the stance and the Halibrand wheels that once again has me thinking, "Why don't they come from the factory looking like this?"
