2005 Chevrolet SSR Lures Fantasy Fans at SEMA in Las Vegas, Nevada

 
 
A 2005 Chevrolet SSR named The Dragon had a Fantasy theme at SEMA (Specialty Equipment Market Association) with airbrushed nudes on doors, fangs and a supercharged motor. If the characters from the movie “Lord of the Rings” could drive, this could be their ride.

With the push of a button from his Apple iphone owner Peter Ouimet of Vancouver, Canada remotely started more than the music “Riders on the Storm” by the Doors.

The Dragon’s SIM card opened its doors to fan out like wings when it was “show-mode time.” The retractable roof pulls back and the truck opens. Its 42 inch Plasma television set comes on connected to an Xbox in its trunk. There are two smoke machines for a full Fantasy effect, but Ouimet had to disconnect the machines at the Las Vegas Convention Center because no one wanted the smoke detectors to alert the Clark County Fire Department. The Dragon also has a full bar for entertainment at the end of a long day.

“We added two thousand pounds of weight to The Dragon,” said Ouimet. “We also put K&N air intake systems on all our vehicles. It gives us the additional horsepower we need at all times and our cars run better.”
