Default how dirty can it get?

I drained the oil of the 1992/93 M62 and the 96 Buick M90 tonight. The M62 has a bad coupler, but the M90 has absolutely no play.
When I drained the oil from them this is what I found.
Which oil is from which SC?

The oil on the left has seen some higher temps and maybe longer life then the right bottle.
I'm going with the burnt comming from the M62?

You didn't get either of my text'*?
I ended up hammering a #12 allen into the plug and had to give it a good hard pull.
