I weighed the Javelin today. Empty car with 3/4 of a tank of gas. Scale was in 10 pound increments. First person to get it on the nose wins an autographed Javelin Hot Wheels car!

I guess per person per day.

Have fun!

3165, yes having a 5 at the end is cheating as it makes me correct for either 3160 or 3170

Empty as in no driver. The full interior is there, including floormats. No spare or jack.

Ding ding ding!!! We have a winner! (Please PM me your address).

3,260 pounds is the weight of my Javelin with 3/4 of a tank of gas, no spare/jack, and no driver. That's all steel and nearly all stock (I think the wheels and exhaust are a little lighter, that's it).

Man, it was funny reading all of these extremely optimistic guesses. Not as bad as the guy who thinks his 1g crx weighed 1300 lbs, but still silly.
