Default Willwren- Possible Collectors item???? LOL!!!!

I checked out those production figures on the Techno site- Please correct me if i'm wrong

According to those #'* there were only 3,641 SSE'* and 3,413 SSEI'* made in 1998?
out of 58,411 units. Do I have a possible collectors item due to the low volume?

*1998 SSE*

Collector'* item? No. Nice try, though

You'd need a 40th anniversary SCSE. That would be something. Even the 40th SSEi. But not any other model. (40th anniversary is 1997, btw.)

Rare options help. Like the rare 1993 SLE option package, with the one year muffler. And to top it off, one year, special GM paint

They got floor mats.

My car is rare because all of the options are offered only in on year, and the SLE wasn't all year even, as far as i can tell.
