Yep. From 92-93 and back again in 96-97 these years the SSE had the Supercharged option

SSE was top of the line in 88-91. After that there were a few SSE'* offered with the supercharger, but not many. It'* pretty much a Bonne with most of the goodies, but usually no */C. If you are unsure, just look under the hood or check the RPO'* for L67.

what'* the point of having an SSE model with the */c option? cheaper than having the extra "i" on the emblem?

With the */C option you could get the car with less other options, but with the */C if you truely wanted. There was an SSE by me a while ago that had cloth, power driver'* seat, no roof, hud, or bose, just cassette with the Gold wheels. Seems like someone just liked the looks of the body trim. Now that with a */C would have been fun.

Sounds like my car

The SSE you're talking about has a manual passenger seat though? :o
