First off, I wouldn't worry too much about the wight...I posted this a while back, and although it's not the most reliable of methods...it makes some sense, which is better than guessing, and the numbers do check out.

Wieght.................(with auto) 3935 lbs...................what we're discussing

Length.................192.6 inches............................. 186.2 inches

Width...................74.7 inches.............................. 79 inches

Hieght..................58.1 inches.............................. 53 inches


So...If we create a cubic volume for the commodore (expand the car into 90 degree boxes), and then divide it by the it's wieght, then multiply it by the Camaro's "volume". We could get an educated guess as to wieght. Oh, and keep in mind the Commodore is a Sedan, and the Camaro is a coupe.

Holden "volume" = 835897. Holden's lbs. per "volume" unit = .0047075

Camaro "volume" = 779619. Guestimated Camaro's wieght = 3670 lbs.!!!!

Now keep in mind, it's also a coupe ....(I can't seem to stress this enough)
