I know you're gonna slam the n00b for asking this, but I did a search and came up without the answer. How much do the GTOs weigh? They look like they should be light (like my j-body -- HA! I wish), but I've heard as much as 3800 pounds. Can anyone please settle this for me? Thanks!

By the way, I've lurked for a while, but sadly I'm just a dreamer. I don't think I'll be able to get a GTO unless we magically come into some money. And that really sucks, too, because the local Stealership has them marked down to below $28K.


EDIT: OK, a buddy of mine just told me he looked it up and it's quoted as "500 lbs more than the Corvette." Can anyone confirm that, please?

That would make sense. Is the '05 hood carbon fiber?
Not stock. No way. Especially now--there is a worldwide supply crunch on carbon fiber.

I would guess that several of the porkier components are swapped out. An example-- you can cut an easy (and cheap) 12 lbs out of an '04 by replacing that massive oilpan skidplate with a welded aluminum unit.

I would suspect that careful replacement of some of the heavier (Aussie-road-specific) suspension components would yield fairly significant weight savings.
