yeah as a matter of fact I think I saw something like that in 95 at the dealer when we bought ours. when you said white with teal letters it jarred my memory. granted I was only about 8-9 years old so I could be wrong.

Holy hell your r/t is a fat pig. My '95 highline coupe only weighed about 2300 when I got it.

Shooting for some low 13's/high 12's by the end of summer.

Looking for some cheap magnum valve springs, a solid FMM, a solid bobble, and a nice non-mod clutch setup.

This is what I thought as well. The sedans are a 'few' lbs lighter because of like 2 support bars that arent there because of the two more doors. Just what ive read many times.

Yet sedans have more parts because the car is taller, you have bigger B pillars, more roof and 2 extra doors with two more door panels, kranks, locks, weatherstripping, glass, tracks and handles. unless two fully equipped sedan doors front and back weigh as much as one coupe door, I highly doubt the sedan is lighter.

Im not saying they are but I have read it numerous times on the forums. Yea, I thought it to be unlikely too, but when the overwhelming matority says that then you tend to believe it.
