    I have always had a helmet and in the winter a Simpson neck brace.
    My helmets were also Snell approved not just DOT.
    My eyes water at high speeds the helmet fixed that.
    Fastest was 167 MPH for my bike V65 magna not stock.
    Fastest car was my 78 Nova at 176 MPH both would get there in 3/4 of a mile.
    The bike was topped out but the car was still pulling hard at that speed.

    My butt cheeks were pulling on the seat though and caused me to back off the throttle :)

    Good guess not the number though.
    I will say with research the Geo Metro load can be found and it is lighter than the Corolla load.

    Ah, I see from the other post there is no back seat in that car. Should probably double that guess then. lol

    Can I play? I have moved all that rock so many times I still have no idea how much it all weighs. I just know it's all gone and I like that.

    My guess for the Geo is 2 ton.

    My guess for the Corolla is 1600 pounds.

    I don't think a Geo will haul 3000lbs. That's 1-1/2 tons, the car isn't more then 2500lbs.

    If your car was a donkey, it would look like this.
