My hatchback LX with nearly a full tank of gas, spare/jack removed and the insulation above the spare removed weighs 3270 lbs. With me in it, it weighs 3450 (I weigh 180). I've weighed mine on a car weighing scale at the track. If you spell weighin enough it looks like a really wierd word....

From the official Ford Mustang 5.0 Technical Referance and Performance Handbook it lists the following:
LX 5.0 Notch(M/T) - 3037lbs
LX 5.0 Hatch(M/T) - 3102lbs
LX 5.0 Vert(M/T) - 3238lbs
GT 5.0 Hatch(M/T) - 3191lbs
GT 5.0 Vert(M/T) - 3327lbs
LX 5.0 Notch(A/T) - 3097lbs
LX 5.0 Hatch(A/T) - 3162lbs
LX 5.0 Vert(A/T) - 3298lbs
GT 5.0 Hatch(A/T) - 3251lbs
GT 5.0 Vert(A/T) - 3442lbs
93 5.0 Cobra(M/T) - 3225lbs
93 5.0 Cobra-R(M/T) - 3143
94 5.0 GT (SN95)(M/T) - 3380

#s are without fuel or oil

So by getting a notch, you could save about 350lbs compared to a SN95. If you are racing, your not worried about safety.

with a full tank, gutted, and me in it (150lbs) my car weighed in at about 3,080lbs. Without me in it it weighed about 2,930lbs. On my title it is listed as a 4 cylinder LX coupe. Its a base model, no power windows, etc. And it says it weighs 2,700lbs.

Its a 1988 LX notch back. with a 5.0 conversion.

Yeah, my LX 5.0 Hatch(M/T) weights 3160 according to my local rock place, with most of a tank of gas, no A/C, and nothing out of the ordinary in the car.
