When I bought my SSEi the sales literature from GM stated:
* - Safety
* - Security
E - Efficiency
i - intelligent

and after each a description of all the special features that the car had associated with each

...like the man said, it can mean whatever you want it to...

I group them into two categories depending on how much plastic they have on the outside: SSE and SSEi (and older cars like my gorgeous old '78 T/A 6.6) are wearing full Bird-of-Prey battle gear; the LE and SE are the "civilian" models... (Oooh, that'll go over _real_ well here... )

Y'know what else? There used to be really good _factory_ names, too: "My car was made in Framingham..." Plus there'* Torrence Avenue, or Lordstown, or Flint, or Pontiac...

Now my brother'* driving around in a Saturn that was made in Spring Hill. I tell ya, it just ain't the same.
