About “BLACK DIAMOND”

I purchased this car used from Carmax in 1999 because I needed room for a carseat and "the Raven" didn't allow for that. It has only 60,000 miles on it. This car is clean inside and out with the exception of the hood needing to be repainted(many stone chips). The best time for Black Diamond in the 1/8 mile is 10.44 seconds at 74.9 mph. The best time in the 1/4 mile is 14.8 at 96 mph.

About “Spring Edition”

This was a limited edition HHR I ordered the day GM released the orders. It was 1 of the first 20 off the line. There are only 2300 made.

 

Specs for “BLACK DIAMOND”

1. 3.4 litre V6
2. upgraded brakes with slotted rotors
3. hollowed out mass airflow sensor
4. swisscheesed airbox for more flow.
5. K+N air filter

Specs for “Spring Edition”

The only difference between the Spring Edition and off the lot HHR's is the Red color, 2-tone interior, special wheels and all the LT trim. Options available were leather & sunroof. Both of which I decided against!

 

Factory Options for “BLACK DIAMOND”

1. sunroof
2. 4 wheel disc brakes

Factory Options for “Spring Edition”

I did opt. for the bigger 2.4liter engine , anti-lock & side air bags

Factory Fade decal was removed and a Nostalgic 57 Chevy style decal was applied. Also a grill decal was addedand a SoCal stubby antenna. Other than that she's the daily driver. By the way the 57 Chevy decal kit is available for sale at $65.00 delivered.
