Default common and rare options

hmm, after some (off topic! lol) discussion in this thread, perhaps it'd be interesting to know whether some of our cars have rare options *or* non-options.

I for one, have a cloth interior and no sunroof, but i do have ghetto gold. 10 speaker audio, self-leveling rear air suspension, and such.



My neighbour'* '87 LE has power seats, although the controls are on the left side of the bottom cushion, not on the centre console, which are where SSE power seat functions are. Less extents of motion, as well. It has a tachometer, and 14" crosslace wheels, power windows and locks, no ABS, and oil/battery gauges and the like.




discuss?

The white 1990 SSE I sold to my sister-in-laws family didn't have a sunroof, but it did have the leather and Ghetto Golds.
The guy who bought my 1999 SSEi 2 weeks ago has a grey 1991 SSE with cloth andno sunroof but it does have the ghetto golds.

I had an 89 SE with electronic climate control, steering wheel controls, and performance sound.

Speaking of which my cousin used to have a 1987 Bonneville SE with the center console, cloth, steering wheel controls, BOSE sound, and dual power seats with the same 16" wheels as RLD has.

Imagine that :P

My 89 came with F41 suspension, not common for the SE trim level of that vintage

mine is fully loaded.. some rich dude owned it before my dad/mom/me blah blah.

Climate control, auto level, leather, 12 way seats, not sure what they are called but the wheels are the same colour as the car, performance sound, all the gauges I could ever need/want [except air/fuel, tranny temp, and fuel pressure, 3 pod fabbed up someday]. I am probably forgeting something, but I know the car is fully loaded except for the sunroof. I can take a look at the RPO codes if anyone wants more accuracy.

Meanwhile, I'm on the opposite end of the spectrum. No Tach, no leather, no sunroof, no trip odo, no voltage meter, bench seats. All I have is tilt wheel, the basic sound, speedo, odo, engine temp, and gas gauge. No power windows or doors. Although it does only have 39k miles. I guess it evens out in the end...
