I mentioned it in another thread and Mike chased me off with a stick. But seriously, I got 1720 kg on certified truck scale without me in it, so 3780 pounds, probably subtract 30 pounds for the crap in the trunk, still a hearty 3750. This my 1988 Oldsmobile Cutlass Supreme Brougham when it had an Olds 403 with aluminum intake and shorty headers. So probably very close to the original swirl port 307 with a factory aluminum intake and tubular manifolds. Please post your make, model and options with the weight. Mine has the super padded interior with the split bench, no doubt adds a lot of weight. Thanks, post them up.

The 1st time I weighed my Monte was with a 496 BBC, aluminum heads and radiator, fiberglass hood and full interior with both seats power, full 3.5" exhaust and my aluminum ARE 15 x 8 rims and it was 3780 lbs
My car also has an ASC power sunroof.

Interesting, the weights are all over the place. Makes sense the pre 81 cars are lighter, more aluminum parts and a bit smaller in size. Keep em coming.

Need some wagon weights. This is a good thread idea!
I thought so, caused a fight in the other thread, so it gets to be hashed out here. Looks like the CAFE late 70's cars are the lightest so far.

you'd need to weigh them all with the same amount of gas, empty trunk, same wheels and tires and on the same scale so you'll get an accurate comparison

I would be curious to see weights of the ones that are all original and see how they compare to the title weight.
