Question Weight of 1985 delta 88

Hi everyone, I was seing the quarter mile time calculators on the internet but they require the weight of the car on one of the fields. Does anyone know how much a 1985 delta 88 royal brougham would weigh?

Yeah they finally gave up this year in Chicago. Now pretty much anything that they can't plug into... they don't test.

92 and older exempt now I am sure of.

well, 20.60 aint as bad as I expected (still aint much) but with a little work it should be easy to pull it into the 14's or 15's
