I've never been a convertible kinda guy, but the General hit a homerun with this one! The roof profile almost matches the coupe to a tee.

still no bowtie??
will you have to get a new grill if you remove the bowtie to get rid of those holes

I'm not sure since that grille is more than likely a pre-pro piece.

Yea, I know but it's a pre-pro test mule. GM has not released official pics of the production SS/RS

Yeah, still pre-production, but pretty dang close to the finished product.

They definitely did an amazing job on the convertible top.
And it's no wonder... Saab did it, and they've always been good at ragtops!

I don't really dig soft top convertibles, but it looks ok.

That's an interesting tidbit. Saab has always been a well engineered line, IMO. I'm not crazy about turning a TrailBlazer into a 9-7 (badge engineering at it's finest), but one hand washes the other, eh?

We don't know that for sure, the pre-pros had mixed front fascias. This could be a V6 with the front scoop on it. I can't tell what size rims those are, so other than that, it's almost impossible to tell what is under the hood.

2010 Stock IBM 2SS/RS

I found $80 in my jeans pocket. The kid in me said "buy nerf guns and candy!" But then the adult in me said "buy vodka, nerf guns and candy!"
