The only easy way is by looking at the engine. But if it is a 98 or 99, they came standard with the supercharger.

Most of the time you can tell by the rims. If they are the standard rims then they have the n/a. If they have the next step up rims(not chrome) Then most likely it is supercharged. That is the easiest way for me to tell. Most people will not change rims.

The 8th Vin digit will be 1 if it's S/C, and K if it's N/A.

Also, just look for the S/C snout sticking out with the extra belt instead of a black plastic Upper Intake. (S/C engine has 2 belts, N/A has 1)
