April 2015 Great Oklahoma Classic belongs to Lloyd and Eileen Swanson of Oklahoma
City, Oklahoma. We met Lloyd and Eileen

2006 Chevrolet SSR was only made for a short time beginning in 2003. The last
production run of this very unusual vehicle was the 2006 model year and this
vehicle was produced on February 15, 2006.
