Update,

I did not take the time to post what was going on with the car, I just wanted to post a "help wanted" as fast as I could. Leaving your 19 yo sister on the side of the road in NYwith her 2 friends makes me a little concerned.

The orginial prob is that the car was leaking a little oil. As they were driving, apperently the leak grew to the point where the motor died. The girls put some oil in it and drove thru the tool booth and then the car died again and that was it. Bandit made it out there and he was sayin' that the motor is locked up. The starter fully engages but it won't spin over. Now just waiting for more phone calls.

Thanks again everyone---love the club spirt

Update #2

My sis and her friends are making great use of that huge trunkspace of Bandits Bonnie. They were not able to get a hotel for the night because none of them were old enough to rent. They are spending the night at Jeff'* tonight and hopefully get stuff straightened out in the morning

Bandit, Jimmyfloyd and the their buddies, Thank you so very much . Their safety which is my biggest concern has been taken care of.

P.*. Jessie, I'm sure Jeff or Ryan will show you this, I hope they do anyway'*; get pics!!

While Cheetah is probably talking to his sister.. Jimmyfloyd called.

Yes, blown motor. or seized ...neither are good.

The girls are getting a ride in the Banditmobile to Jimmyfloyd'* place to spend the night and work out the details.

Awesome the way a call can come in and local people are out to the scene and helping out so quickly..

Great job guys..

Thanks Tracy, but I believe that Jeff is already putting them up. I hate to ask / say it but they may need a place tomorrow night.

The motor had 235k miles on it. It lived a good life.

As for the SHO, they would need new backrests
