H.S. students carry '87 Camaro up 3-flights of steps for prank

30 High School seniors carried a 1987 Chevrolet Camaro up three flights of concrete steps and deposited the car in the school's outdoor entryway, blocking the front doors.

"Apparently, some kids might have gotten rambunctious, end of school-type thing," Deputy Chief William Keehner said Thursday. "At this time of year, you do see some pranks."
The white muscle car lacked an engine, transmission and interior and was used in auto shop class. In the dark of night, the seniors rolled the chassis from the back of the school building to the main entrance. With the help of a few 2x4s, the teens managed to lift, push and pull 2,000-plus pounds at a 45-degree angle up the first flight of steps.

Then came the second level, and after a rallying speech from one senior demanding that they finish the job, they tackled the final, third flight. Police got a call about 12:40 a.m. Thursday about youngsters loitering around the high school. When officers arrived, no one could be found.
