DENISON, Texas -- Chevy SSR fanatics are holding their 2017 International Rally in Denison this week.

Fans of the retro convertible pickup truck have come from 28 states and Canada to show their affection for the distinctive vehicle.

More than 150 SSRs will take part in events at the Hilton Garden Inn through Saturday.

"It's a small group, kind of a cult following," said Mike Moro. "All the members are typically in their 50s, 60s, 70s, and grew up around hot rods. Now we enjoy getting together to talk about our trucks, and exchange ideas and find out how to fix things."

On Saturday, the group will stage an SSR car show at Ironroot Distillery at 3111 Loy Lake Road in Denison from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.

Fewer than 25,000 SSR models were made by General Motors during its three-year production run.
