Default Am I the first to witness.....

....a Bonneville being treated like a GEO at a redneck party?

Country Music Fest-USA is going on this weekend just north of Sauk Centre and between my brothers and I we have 4 camp sites all over the camping areas. (Pit stops for booze on our trips around the camp sites)
Anyhow, upon returning from one trip around we arrived to a guy who wanted to leave, but my brother Marks Bonneville was blocking his car in. Mark was there, but another brother had walked off with his keys.
So, about 12 guys literally LIFTED the 40th Anniversary Edition SSEi up and moved it back about 15 feet!!!! Took about 5 lifts but we did it and this morning there was no visible damage from anyone lifting in the wrong spots.
There were people all around looking at us in shock -even the Mounted Sheriff'* Posse watched in amazement. Everyone was like -"...that thing ways a ton -how the hell did you guys do that?!?!?!"
They were even more shocked when I stated the car weighs almost 3800 lbs with the coolers and other camping crap in it.

Wow, I'd be worried about my car if that happened..lol How did they lift from the front and back? What did they hold on to?

Sounds like it would have been a good time to bring the video cam!!

There probably were another 1-2 guys, but yeah, it wasn't easy. I was one of them and I sure felt like I was lifting more than than the 280 I squatted two years ago.

Back in high school me and 2 other friends would move a girls car. We would only move the front end sideways, so she would be stuck in the parking lot in between 2 other cars. Was quite fun. But she only had a Plymouth Horizon (small compact car - lightweight). I couldn't imagine moving a heavy BVille!
