I had to go to the dump today, so I got to find out what my car weighed. It weighed in at 2880lbs with me in it (220lbs) and a full tank of gas (10gal, about 80-100 lbs) plus I had some other stuff in the car as well that weighed about 10 lbs. So...

2880lbs
- 220lbs
-80 lbs
-10 lbs
= 2570 lbs :D Not bad really, and I still have my spare tire, and a stereo system(deck, amp, and 6 speakers.

That would make it 2770lbs :-? A little heavy don't you think? According to what I have read, the early (88 to 89) 2 gens where 2591lbs. I have no carpet or underlay in the car, so I figured that accounted for the 21 lb difference. Also my car has NO options, no air, no power anything, very basic.
I know that the sunbirds are heavy though, for some reason pontiacs are.

Also, my dads 03 chevy pick up weighed 4200 lbs on that scale. Sounds about right.

I think its because the birds get better sound proof material, and ahah better speakers! Thats the only thing I can think of..

Ya that sounds about right, they also got more options in them typically.

I just looked a few sites last night. The cars with the V6 are at an average of 2,500 to 2,600 pounds while the 4cylinder j's are more around 2,400 pounds.

Thats exactly what I found too. And having weighed my car, it looks accurate.
