I'm sure it's fun, and the General does have a gem in the LS series engines.

But could you please put it in a copier and hit 'reduce' by about 20% please?

Da-yum, those things are fat!

Agreed. The Mustang is just as heavy but doesn't look it. The Camaro and the Challenger look like they weight 5,000 lbs.

The Camaro (V8) is 3850 MT/3913AT, the Challenger is 4132MT

Not too bad. You would be surprised at how heavy most cars are these days with all the safety gear and "improvements"....

That's very true. A '12 BMW M3 weighs 3,700 lbs and a '12 Mustang GT weighs 3,600 lbs.

The saddest is the '12 VW GTi weighing 3,100 lbs.

The STI weighs 3,400 lbs. It's not that skinny.
