Why are the 95's heavier?

I've owned two of them, and I've tried to seriously buy two others. One being a 97 RSP 5speed and the other was a super clean 92' black on light grey interior.

1992


1995 Teal Mist and I have yet to see another factory 5 spd Teal Mist car. This was a special order car and the owner waited 6mths for it to arrive!

I didn't know the 92's were lightest. I wonder why? Maybe the cup holders are super heavy? lol.

Ha, same here. Once I saw it all my grand bargaining plans kind of fell apart. I just stuttered and slobbered for a while until he named some outrageous price and I agreed happily.

I have seen those numbers before and I don't see how they could be accurate - unless most of the manuals were shipped to AZ. I can find a 5 speed at any given time in AZ. In fact, just for fun, I just jumped on craigslist this morning and low and behold - a 5 speed teal mist (I think) 95 SC300 just 20 miles from my house.

You might be onto something actually, think of all the wealthy people who bought a nice SC 15 years ago and retired to AZ.
