Default olds LSS question

I guess I can put this in general, it'* a related car, no? Otherwise you mods know what to do :P .

I was looking at cars today and I found an AWESOME Oldsmobile LSS. It'* a really dark cherry color, but not as dark as the color on the Bonnevilles . Anyway it had Olds Aurora rims on it, a spoiler, either black or dark grey leather bucket seats with console, CD player, digital climate control, looked like about all the bells and whistles. Oh, did I mention it was a 96? Anyway, I was wondering, were all LSSs supercharged? Part of my brain wants to think they were. There were 2 people working at the dealer this morning and neither even knew what a Supercharger is.

Aurora rims are 6 spoke, the LSS has 5 spoke.

Sorry to burst your bubble, but not all LSS'* are supercharged. In fact, most weren't. Must have the vin "1" in the eighth digit to be supercharged, otherwise it'll have vin "K" for the NAed 3800.

non-suercharged '97 (VIN K):

This one is SCed (VIN 1):

Oh, OK, I may have to stop and look at it again tomorrow, then. The car was kinda dirty, but appeared to be in AWESOME condition for it'* age.

I looked over a year for mine. 587 were */C'd in 97 out of about 6000 LSS'* produced. So don't get your hopes up unless you already know the 8th didgit in the vin is 1.
