How fat is your Fox Body?

How much does your fox body weigh with the combo you are running? With a BBF and C-6,C-4,tubular K-member, stock K-member, gutted, not gutted,......... Some people say they can get 2600 without the driver real easy and others say 3000 in street trim. What is reality and fiction? If you want to give your engine combo and E.T. that would be great to.

1985 notch LX. 2680 w/o driver 460, C4, 9" rearend. All factory wiring removed and most of the interior stripped. Tubular k-member, 6-point cage, ladder bars, lexan windshield, factory hood.

GT adds ~200lb because of the body kit and options
Hatch added ~275, I forget for certain but it was considerable.
86 and earlier weighed less and had less rigid frames. Again I forget the amount.
