So I finally did it everyone, I bought an SS! Yes, finally I bought the ride that Ive been dreaming and wishing and saving and going crazy for the past 4 years for. Took delivery on Saturday the 14th and put at least 60mi on it running around. Have some more pics of me with it, but they're on the parents camera in Seattle, Ill get them within a day or two.



Now for the goods:
2008 TB SS AWD 3SS Summit White
NAV
rear seat entertainment
sunroof
engine block heater

May not seem impressive, but for the 3SS package thats every options box except the smokers package (never use it on my 02 anyway) and the rear cargo cover (have to buy one here soon).

It had been sitting in Moscow, ID for a long time so the dealership flew someone out to pick it up and drive back to Seattle. She got a speeding ticket on the drive back. I didnt even want NAV or RSE, but this was the truck that was the right color (stickin with white, looks so friggin sexy on the SS) and since its an 08 it was cheaper than an 09 with just a single disk HU and sunroof. Why pay more for less options? DUMB idea, so got the 08. Got it with 381 miles on it, its got like 440ish now. Unfortunately, its sitting in the garage at home until summer comes around because thats part of the deal I made with the parents, so Im stuck driving my 02 for the time being.

But, I GOT IT!!! F$%K YEA! ITS MINE WOOOHOOOO!!! I was waiting all last week to pick up, and when I did I turned out of the dealership and nailed the throttle. Lets just say first gear comes and goes really quick, its was 30 zone and I was going 50 before I knew it. Promised myself Id do that since I started wanting an SS, and walked around with this stupid grin on my face for the past few days. Got it sideways once already beating oncoming traffic (a VW R32) during a right hand turn, whoops...

I was planning on keeping it stock for a while, but I had an aux adapter sitting around that doesnt work on my 02 (stupid 02 indash changer) so I just had to put it in! Now for the long, long, long mods list to come!

And now Im a 2 TB man!! Well until mid-summer when we sell my 02, thats going to be a very sad day. The wait to have this SS be my true daily driver is going to kill me, but at least Ive got one now with my name on it in my possession!
WHAT!?!?

I totally missed this thread!

Congrats Erik, that's awesome that you finally got your dream truck.
