Default SSE supercharged???

OK I was always aware there was an SE an SLE an SSE and an SSEi, but I only thought the SSEi and SLE (or in some circumstances SE/SC that has SLE package) had the superchargers....but I saw an SSE with supercharged badging on the side today and was very confused....so let me get this straight the supercharged engine was available in EVERY tune of Bonneville???!!! The badging looked just like the badging off an SE/SC on the side and on the trunk lid it just had SSE badging, I would figure if they were going to do that why not just call it an SSEi....didnt the SSE and SSEi have mostly the same options other than the engine anyways???

Maybe the "i" fell off the back? Cause the front says only SSE on my SSEI.

Other than the SSEi, the Supercharged SSE is the most common. Far more common than a SESC.

In 1992-1993 only you could get a SSE with the L67. It is odd, but not all that uncommon. I know of 5 within 10 miles of me. My cousin has a 1992 SSE SC, my mechanic has the carcass of a 1993 SSE SC, and there are a couple others that I don't know of the owners names.
Also, Kennginn has his blue 1993 SSE SC. I believe white is the most common color of them also. Kenn'* is the only non-white SSE SC that I recall ever seeing.
