    He picked it up and stood on the scale, then he weighed only himself. Simple math...:D

    Yes at the drag strip

    Seen them range from just under 3800 to 4100 depending on year and options.

    Re: The earlier part of the discussion involving the Challenger ...

    It seems that a Twin-Turbo, perhaps even a Twin-Turbo Supercharged V6 would be the way to go, supposing the horsepower and torque are quite good while the wet weight is noticeably lower than the Hemi.

    I realize the Hemi has cachét, but so does a roughly equivalent output at a nice lighter weight.

    Not that I dislike the Hemi, but improved Power:Weight is better for the final product if you can swing it.

    { I mean, you don't want the reviewers saying it drives like a ' Brick House ' }

    Hubba-Hubba ... Actually, that's not a bad ride at all. Nicely taken from the Way-Back Machine; but quite a clean ride!

    I appreciate the update, though, RedriderBob - thank you :)

    The relevant weight standard in the USA is SAE J1100, if I'm not wrong:
    From that, it appears that SAE Curb-weight doesn't include driver, or options. The "Kerb-weight (EC)" standard sometimes quoted for European imports, does add 75kg (165 lb) to account for a driver, but only requires the car to be fuelled to about 80%, I think.
