289, no air(removed it), automatic. So far I have managed to resist the urge to pull the interior and keep just the driver seat.

Take a peek at my race car page to get an idea of how our cars compare...

My car has a full chassis and fiberglass front end, aluminum tin work in the back half and is running an aluminum-headed 351W and C4...take a look at the pix for details...

It weighs 2520 lbs wet (full fuel load, all fluids and both batteries) on the scale at Sacramento raceway...

You can always go to a local truck scale, pay your 5 bucks or so and have it weighed...

I did that when I was touring with the race car and had a camper on my truck to make sure my GCWR was within specs.....

Or you can try your local gravel supply place (pit?). They have scales to weigh you before & after you get your load. My brother used to take his car after every little thing he did to find out how much he shaved off. They never charged him anything.......

Just a thought......

hehehe.....I'm just imagining driving my race car into a local S&G and asking to use their scale...

The look on the weighmaster's face would be worth the trip...*G*

A lot of cotton gins out here still have scales too......

I guess it's not what you know, it's who you know...*G*

The Local Drag Track down here has a scale by the Race fuel pumps. Just drive on and drive off. Free of charge.
