I have reduced my 68 to 2800 pounds. Then again it is no longer street legal. If you plan on drag racing the car remove the heavy grill and make a fake grill out of sheet aluminum and put a decal on it so no one can really tell the difference. Here is a picture of my car with a fake grill that I made and had a decal made for it. Now tell me is it real or is it fake?????

My '67 weighs about 3350 with a full tank of gas, about 150 lbs of subwoofer in the trunk, and aluminum heads and intake on the motor. FWIW

Blown,

Just out of curiousity, if the car has a factory AC setup you might save some weight be removing it and installing a non-ac setup if you want to retain the heating at least.

Ps. if it has AC and you want to get rid of the setup, PM me I'm looking for a setup for my mustang.
