Default Test your knowledgte II - General knowledge

Test your knowledge went over reasonably well. Maybe a little too technical and engine based for many of us enthusiasts. Here'* another based on different stuff:

1. Did all Series I and Series II 3800'* come with engine covers from the factory?
2. What grade of fuel does a 2002 Chevy Silverado say it requires?
3. Which GM cars came from the factory with a turbo in the early 90'*?
4. What is the capacity of the 92-99 Bonneviile, 97-03 Grand Prix and 97-04 Buick Regal?
5. Is Majestic Teal an actual GM color of a car that has been offered?
6. What common tire size do most GM 3800 cars share with the Ford Mustang?
7. Which GM color was known from the late 80 through the mid 90'* to peel?
8. What does SE stand for?
9. Did any GM cars come with a grab handle over the window for the driver?
10. What is an FOB?

Not entirely true, Grand Prix and 6000 STE was Standard Touring Edition. TSTE was Turbo Standard Touring Edition.

Don't get me wrong, I am not saying that there are not acronyms that GM did actually use (Sport Luxury Edition comes to mind) but as far as I know, SE was not one of them, at least in the case of the Bonneville.

Also, in the 88-91 Bonneville gen, the LE was the base level, SE was generally more sporty or optioned out, and the SSE was the all out version. You may draw the conclusions that you wish.
