Maybe the airlines need to come back to the REAL world.

How many adults do you know that are 175# or less?

what kind of lightweights do you hang around? Youz Mericans is not a dainty pooplez.
I'm the biggest in my immediate family at 225lbs. That means 10 of me packed into that car to equal the same weight as the watusi and the driver.

Nearly all women. Also, some fraction of airline passengers are children. I'm sure they're not guessing at the average, it's probably based on a lot of hard data.

But I would agree with you that I don't see many 175# men, these days. I weigh 173#, and am pretty fit, but nearly everyone else my age comments at what a skinny bastard I am. Of course, when they were 19 years old and actually in good shape, they weighed 175# too.

Google says Watusi bulls only weigh up to 1600lbs, so that is only eight 200 pounders. And evidently Howdy Doody is a steer so take off another 10 lbs of bullhood. If you look at some of the footage Howdy Doody took a dump and lighted the load. At least what didn't stick on the rear window.

The bull weighed 2200#. Far exceeded the GVWR of the car. More like 12 to 15 people.
GVWR is 5200-6200# depending on year and options, curb weight is 3900-4000# (again, depending on year and options).
So payload capacity is 1200-2300#, plus whatever weight was removed, figure front seat (70#), rear seat (80#), half the roof (100#?), RF door (80#), etc.
Add in a 200# driver and 1600-2200# of steer and it's sitting between 600# over GVWR and 100# under GVWR.
