My SS is a 2000. It was built on August 23rd, 1999 in Ste. Therese, Quebec, Canada. It was the 670th SS out of 8912 built. It's Arctic white hardtop with Ebony leather interior.
Here's a picture of SS #670 near San Pablo Reservoir.
I had been looking for a new car for a number of years. But I wanted
more than a replacement for my daily driver, a 1989 Chevrolet
Beretta GT; I wanted a significant upgrade. A manual transmission
and lots of power were on my non-negotiable list. I was intrigued
by the Corvette powertrain of the LT1 Camaro but never liked the
depressed headlights. When Chevrolet gave the front clip a face
lift in 1998 I decided I wanted one. The new LS1 motor was an
unexpected bonus! Its best dyno pull was 308.8
HP / 321.6 ft-lbs (corrected). My best 1/4 mile run so far was
13.54 seconds @ 104.59 MPH.
My SS is fully loaded. I didn't get T-Tops because they're heavy and allow more body flex. I also didn't get the SLP chrome wheels; I wasn't too hot for the 2000 SS wheels either so instead I bought some Corvette ZR1 style five-spoke SLP take-off wheels. Here are the options I did get:
Description RPO Z28 Coupe 1FP97 SS Performance/Appearance WU8 Preferred Equipment Group 1SD 6-Speed Manual Transmission MN6 Leather Trimmed Seats AR9 Hurst Short Throw Shifter * BBS Rear Window Defogger C49 Monsoon AM/FM with CD UN0
Description RPO Auburn Differential * 10147 SLP Dual-Dual Exhaust 10190 Bilstein Suspension * 10255 Premium Front Floor Mats 10149 SS Key Frobs and Dash Plaque 10151
* Over time I've upgraded some of the factory options. I swapped the factory Hurst short throw shifter for the Hurst billet plus. After my Auburn differential wore out, I installed a Torsen T-2R Racemaster. Finally, I've replaced all of the components of the Bilstein Suspension package. The new parts include Koni dual adjustable shocks, BMR lower control arms, BMR panhard bar and 1LE/SS front/rear springs (GM 22132887/22132889).
In addition, I've installed the SLP OEM airbox lid. This is one half of SLP's High Flow Induction System which was an upfit option on the 2002 SS. The other half is the SLP dual-dual exhaust option.
