Car weight?

So my dad took the '90 (it's an LX hatchback, BTW) to work today to run it across the scales. With a little less than half a tank, it weighed right at 3200 lbs...

I was hoping it would be at least a 100 lbs. or so lighter than that. All the sound deadening has been stripped out. It has no rear swaybar, spare tire w/ jack, or front/rear bumper supports. It also has aluminum heads and a fiberglass hood.

I guess the 4-point cage, subframes, 3-row copper radiator, little 4-channel amp and big wheels/tires add more weight than I expected.

Anyone else weighed their fox?
