The day before their Oct. 26 arrest, the brothers bought a blue 1967 Buick Skylark. Although they didn't have legal documents for the car, the brothers planned to drive it to Mexico without having to stop at any U.S. gas stations.
They filled 21 jugs with gasoline, which they placed in the back seat of the vehicle and in the trunk
.

Thank goodness they didn't make it to the Sack O' Suds.

/Yes, I know that was a 1964 Skylark.

There is no way that these jugs of gasoline were inside a '67 Buick Skylark convertible. These jugs were inside a 1963 Pontiac Tempest.

The brothers had no GPS, so they plotted their route using paper maps

Oh My God
How in the name of FSM did they manage to do that?

"paper maps" ? Is that a thing?

Boy those were the days. "Hey mom and dad, we're going camping for a couple days". "Ok son, be safe".  Socal mountains to tijuana, south to rosarito, got a motel in ensenada. Always tip the armed guard generously. Hussong's, the donkey thing, great food, and brought home a nice sack of 100 m-80's. Of course this was 1980...

But they've got such a long way to go to make it to the border of Mexico so they've fly like the wind.

It's why they needed all the gas.

That scene, and several others, were filmed in Montecello, Ga.  Years ago I was on a bike cruising on GA11, a wonderful and relaxing road, and came into the town square and had the craziest Deja Vu.  I went around the square three times because I knew I'd seen it before and was 100% positive I'd never been there.  It wasn't until months later when the movie came on TV that I figured it out.

Google Bearlax, lol.  It's an old ad painted on a building near the courthouse.

Maybe they thought gallons are smaller than liters, or that Canadian cars couldn't run on US gas.  They are very very stupid, so who know what kind of weird things they thought

That is some of the douchiest facial fuzz I've seen in, well, ever.

Even after all these decades it's still too soon for a hitler mustache.
And it always will be.

The gas part seems like the dumbest part. Did they think they needed metric gas for their Canadian car?

Sat there for six and a half hours saying nothing and staring straight ahead?

$5 says they were waiting for something to wear off before talking to the cops. Even a gobsmacked idiot will say something by hour 3.

Nope, it's kind of boring until you think it HAD to be from the expression "Does a bear shiat in the woods?"  Much like a current tp ad on TV.

Did they really think they could drive from Maine to Mexico without tags and not be stopped?  That's a good way to get lead poisoning.

I think gas might be free like healthcare up there. Kids probably just stocking up for the big adventure into the heart of darkness.

I go through Monticello sometimes when I want to avoid Macon and I-75 coming from or going to Savannah. The Sac O' Suds is out on Ga. 16, toward Jackson.

Yea, to be begrudgingly fair, when we were that age such preparations would have been adequate.

Barely.

As long as you hadn't also forgotten US dollar money.  And kept the bankroll stashed.

CSB:

Twenty five years ago when I was managing a microbrewery we had a driver who was possibly one of the dumbest people I've ever met. The kid (Paul) was always stumbling from one disaster to the next but always seemed to get by on blind luck. One weekend Paul and his friends decided they wanted to get some firecrackers, which are illegal here in Canada. On the spur of the moment they all piled into a car, and drove to Florida (never mind that there were probably closer places to get firecrackers). No luggage. Nothing to indicate they had a legitimate purpose in Florida. Just a car with four guys in their early 20s.

In those days Canadians could visit the U.S. without passports and the U.S. was generally less suspicious about visitors, so they made it across the border without incident, and drove straight down I75 stopping only for gas etc.. When they got to Florida they found someplace that sold firecrackers (Thunder Bombs IIRC), bought about 20 bricks, and headed straight home, again stopping only for gas.

When they arrived at the border crossing in Sarnia Ontario they were asked the standard questions like where they had been, how long had they been gone, etc., which they answered honestly. In what shouldn't be a surprise to anyone reading this, the border guards suspicions were raised when told that a carload of four young males had been in the states for less than 2 days and had somehow managed to travel to Florida and back. The car was searched, 20 bricks of illegal fireworks were found, and they were all arrested in what was probably the easiest smuggling case ever uncovered.

Also missing from that list:

One .45 caliber automatic; two boxes of ammunition; four days concentrated emergency rations; one drug issue containing: antibiotics, morphine, vitamin pills, pep pills, sleeping pills, tranquilizer pills; one miniature combination Russian phrase book and bible; one hundred dollars in rubles; one hundred dollars in gold; nine packs of chewing gum; one issue of prophylactics; three lipsticks; three pair a nylon stockings.

Two bags of grass, seventy-five pellets of mescaline, five sheets of high powered blotter acid, a salt shaker half full of cocaine, and a whole galaxy of multi-colored uppers, downers, screamers, laughers... and also a quart of tequila, a quart of rum, a case of Budweiser, a pint of raw ether and two dozen amyls.

A fella could have have a pretty good weekend in Vegas Mexico with all that.

I didn't think the actual story could be as stupid as the headline

and I was right

the actual story is MORE stupid than the headline

// for anyone assuming these were dumb kids driving from the US into Mexico without passports (something you were able to do before 9/11).

These are dumb kids that were driving from Canada into the US and then planning to drive into Mexico ... without passports.

TL/DR ... they never even made it out of Canada.
