View Full Version : Scaling the Weights

07-31-2008, 12:10 PM
I weighed my car twice. One at a place we have here in the city and another where my dad works. They both marked an astonishing 2900 pounds with no driver! I told some friends and they said that its wrong, that it should weight 3400 at least....WTF? would two scales actually lie to me??? :bang:

Anybody has info on the weights of our cars???

there was a thread around LS1 tech that I saw a long time, and if im not mistaken it said that 1998 Formulas weighed 3,1__ something...reported made my MotorTrend

wonder if MotorTrend is putting correct n true info!

4th gen Fbodies weigh generally around 3300lbs up to 3600lbs from what I've seen. What kind of scale was this? I'm thinking they were off by a few hundred pounds...

Did you really have to post this multiple times? It is probably around 3200 lbs. with your weight removal.

The scales are wrong. Sorry. Standard Catalog of Firebird by John Gunnell says Formulas weigh the following: 1998, 1999 models = 3455 lbs (starting on page 192). 2000, 2001, 2002 models = 3341 lbs (starting on page 199).
