Not necessarily. My '93 SSE came with those same wheels from the factory, as did Booze'*.

I can't tell if it'* a vanilla car or if it'* just really dirty.

Oop! Waaaaait a minute. That car doesn't have an SSE badge on the door like mine did. That looks more like a Supercharged badge...maybe it is a '92...

My car looks similar to that now. The pipes are the underbody color, and they're recessed because the tips have either fallen off or have been removed.

That makes sense, the stock exhaust on my SE was recessed too, now that I think about it.

Yeah, it definitely shows something about the rear end accident because the bumper cover is too low, and the tips have been taken off. Could have been nasty.

Didn't badge the Supercharged SSE'* in 93? Did they only badge 'em in '92?

My bonnie was built late in 1992, so I guess the rims were leftover, no matter, I like 'em.

I found one that looks just like that around my grandparents house just this week too! What a coincidence. I saw it on the road though, if I didn't have to go t work I'da followed it to card it.
It was alos the not-as-white-white (40U), same rims and it had the */C'd badge on the door. Paint was fading pretty badly. But anyway...

Find anything out about that one yet?

Ok, I left a note on the door (took my Dad'* Durango so I wouldn't seem like a nut), and as soon as I got home, got a phone call. It is a woman that owns it, and it seems that she has no idea what is wrong with it.

All she said was "It stopped running. so I had it towed here, and it has been sitting ever since."

Mileage is unknown at the time, and it IS a '93 SSE SC. She said she hasn't decided what she is going to do with it, but if she decides to get rid of it, she is going to give me a call to "just come and get it". So it seems that she is willing part with it for free.

EDIT - OOPS, meant to say 92 instead of 93. It IS a '92.
