There are Hybrids and there Hybrids. When we use the word, you can bet it has nothing to do with battery-powered econo-boxes.

Hybrid Chevy SSR - side view

When Chevy designers went to work on the retro-looking SSR, they took much of their styling inspiration from the early '50s "Bull-Nose" Chevy pickup trucks. But to some, like Brian Stafford, the designers of the SSR did not take the idea far enough. So he decided to celebrate 50 years of Chevy trucks by grafting the fenders, hood and grill of a 1953 Chevy 3100, to a 2003 Chevy SSR.

Artists concept - rear view.
