The information has not been listed yet on the normal sources; therefore, it is possible it hasn't been finalized. I haven't been able to find much other than the length is 186.2 in., the width is 79.6 in., and the height is 53 in.

Over the years I have to admit I have stacked on a few extra pounds but 4100 and then some; why? Is it the frame or just a combination of all that neat stuff that makes it so darn fun to drive.

Mostly the safety and power accessaries. We have grown used to having our conviencies and they add weight. The cars of today have almost 1/2 more weight added than the cars of the 60s and 70s.The sound systems and extra tube routing for AC in those places we want to be comfortable at. Computorized everything and them talking to one another. So when you add all this up it comes out to be quite porkly. But the HP has increased to the 60s and 70s standard with a whole lot better gas mileage. The ride is better and our comfort is improved quite nicely.

Couldn't agree more about all those creature comforts = nice ride.
The lighter,wilder side of me is hopeful that my local dealership is correct, as they told me that the drag pack will be back in production soon, have you heard anything about that?
