I remember the first time I read this article. I thought it was the Holy Grail of Coupe info. Sadly years later when questioned about the facts of the article Mr Ganahl said he never measured the car and that he didn't remember where the numbers came from. With that in mind you may not want to take everything you read as here as "Gospel". I will let you figure out the facts for yourselves but I will give you one biggie.
Ricks Mom never worked as a car hop.
