A few "mainstream" mentions about diecast.

In the Sept/Oct Issue of TruckTrends (Motor Trends truck magazine) they quote General Motors as saying that 2 million diecast Chevy SSR models have been sold which they are also claiming is a record.

2 million sure sounds like a lot to me. :?

The August 11 isuue of Autoweek had a question asking readers about diecast in ther "Fast Poll" section.
6 lettersa were printed where readers listed some of their favorites.
Some familier cars were mentioned.

2 million :? - hope their licensing agreement is lucrative, 'cause SSR has Prowler written all over it.

Another prove that Chevy SSR is indeed an winning automobile design. Too bad that Chevy wants too much for a truck that can haul no more than 2 people with couple of golf bags. The minute I saw the price figure published by Chevy, I smell T-bird cooking. I am sure the only 2 millions figure Chevy will likely to see is via diecast sale. If Chevy makes one with exact design plus an OHV small block V8 that produces at least 240HP for around 24,000 dollars, I'd buy one!

I think the SSr is a much better truck than the excuse of the Silverado SS :roll:

I don't think there is no way Maisto produced two million SSR's in a years time, as they are the only ones making it...just think about it. :? :?:

Hey dX...If you threw Matchbox 1/64 SSRs into the mix, would you get closer to the 2 mil figure? Just wondering...after all, 1/64s are also considered diecasts.

2 million is a big number. When you toss in 1/64, 1/24 and 1/18 all together its very possible...but that is a big number for one model. :? :?

I have the top-up version and the top-down version. :iagr: the car is underpowered and WAY too expensive.

I think the car is selling well. They could boost sales if they keep coming out with limited editions.

I agree with the power arguement, but the price is simple in terms of counting beans. GM has seen what other companies have done by cashing on on nostalgic models; ie DC with the Prowler and most recently with Ford and their Ford GT. This truck isn't meant to be a mainstream model, only as a dose of additional profit, something they are in desparate need for in my understanding...and this is the one model that can possibly do it.
