Ya..the early series I in the 87-91 were designated LG3 and LN3, similar to L27, and L67'* of newer 3800'*.

But Series I is easier to remember. In fact I always refer to my mill as the old VIN C

this is how I have always taken it..
87- = 3.8
88-1991=3.8 3800
1992-1994=3800 Series I
1995+=3800 Series II
