Ok, taking the weight of the fuel out of the equation...
Between amp boxes, BMX bikes and so forth, there seems to be a bit of a discrepancy.
Of course, scales vary, but at the same time I am curious.
About 2 years ago, I went to the track and for giggles, I put the car on the scales.
Emptied the rear (spare tire etc.) and floor mats, random CD's, copy of "Ishtar" and anything else you can think of and I weighed in at roughly (I forget the exact number) 2600 LBS with me in the car.
I weigh about 210.
Is there any standard scale that is used?
I know we have the sticker on the door jam, but we can see how accurate that is.
With the difference in weights, is it possible that there is more sound deadening material based on build date?
Is it possible that there is more weight from different materials/option packages (I know that's inherently obvious, but 200 LBS!?!?)
You guys have got me thinking now...
