The Chevy HHR SS Panel Is One of the Weirdest Modern Cars

The Chevy HHR SS Panel is one of the strangest modern cars in existence. Today I'm reviewing the HHR SS Panel, and I'm going to show you the quirks and features of the Chevy HHR SS Panel -- a high-performance panel van. Then I'm going to get it out on the road, drive it, and tell you what it's like.

    Your Car Show on ILmines is Best #1 Cause of your personality and pronunciations. But, you need a female model to help you out and make people laugh too. Not in a bikini of course, but one that is cute, long hair, lifts weights, competes in IFBB amateur competitions and is looking for more video ILmines time and exposure.

    Way before having watched this video I spotted one of these while walking during my lunch break in high school. I was with my friends and remember saying “who buys a Chevy HHR and covers up the windows? To kidnap children?” and laughed it off thinking it was a modified vehicle. This video came out several months after that and I watched it, realizing that what I saw was a factory vehicle. I saw ANOTHER one of these quite recently. What a strange vehicle.

    I wish I could’ve been in the board meeting at GM when somebody pitched this car. It probably sounded like this: “To all our blue-collar tradesmen out there, Have you ever wanted a commercial van that allows you to throw your circular saw and pliers through the back window via a launch control system? Then boy do we have a product for you!” -General Motors, 2008

    Compared to the standard seats, those SS buckets are a massive improvement. I’ve had the cloth and I’ve had the “leather” seats in the cobalt sister car of the HHR, and they were both horrible.

    Doug seems almost put off by this vehicle (same with the SSR). Is it that he wanted us to know and feel his annoyance? Or just to annoy us? Ah, the internet, where negativity gets you views (and likes apparently).... I know the fellow who designed the vehicle and thought this was hysterical. I wish Doug would do a review of his 88 Sentra..

    It's funny GM got a head start on small economy panal vans so early with this HHR ..look around now and Ford and Ram both now have their own "small business" vehicles. Having owned both the HHR and PT cruiser I'd actually put the Cruiser only slightly above the HHR.Believe it or not the PT had a more well put together interior...soooooo much plastic in the HHR.

    The PT Crusier is a very nice looking comfortable small car with retro looks. The mechanical aspects of it were lacking as it really needed a ultra reliable engine and transmission . Had the PT had that it would still be a hit. That panel van thing is the most ugly looking automobile from modern times meaning the last fifty years
