    My 1971 Chevelle SS Convertible is listed at 3478 lbs curb weight.

    A 2022 Camaro coupe has a base curb weight of 3351 lbs.

      3351 lb is a V6 stripper.
      If you want to compare apples to apples, the 2022 V8 SS Camaro convertible is right at 3937 lb.
      OTOH it is still rated at 16/24 mpg.

        Well, that was the only spec I could find.

        OTOH it is still rated at 16/24 mpg.
        When I drove the Chevelle to school & work in town I got 16mpg. L48 350 & 3.73:1 gear.
