SEVEN CLASSIC sex-symbol cars will have their curvaceous bodies covered with bloody limbs and gaping jaws in today's Liberty Region Corvette Club Show at Katie O'Donnell's Irish Pub in Northeast Philadelphia. The eerie entries in the EmpireCovers Halloween Car Cover Contest - try saying that with a mouthful of candy corn - will be scattered among the street rods and muscle cars in the pub's parking lot on Woodhaven Road near Franklin Mills Boulevard. Among the dozens of local student-artists entering solo and group creations to win the $250 to $1,000 prizes, Holiday Campanella, 25, of South Philly, was shocked when she first saw the size of her blank canvas.

Carli Lloyd was just 40 minutes from Delran High School, where the midfielder first started to make a name for herself by playing soccer. She was 85 miles from Yurcak Field at Rutgers, where Lloyd played in college and was last year inducted into the Hall of Distinguished Alumni. And 38 miles away is the Universal Soccer Academy in Lumberton, where the 32-year old has trained for years with James Galanis. For all intents and purposes, PPL Park in Chester is like a home field for Lloyd.

It turns out that Chester County is an auto-body trainee's idea of utopia. High-income residents, expensive cars, and winding rural roads add up to a lucrative place for collision-repair specialists to make six-figure salaries. And 45 students at Technical College High School (TCHS) Brandywine are on their way there, learning the magic of making dents - or worse - disappear. But along the way, the teens are doing a good deed. Students at the Downingtown school are the first high schoolers in the nation to participate in a program that repairs older vehicles to be donated to needy families and charitable groups.

The anonymous caller who dialed the Philadelphia District Attorney's Office last year had a disturbing tale to tell: A woman was dead, and someone was trying to steal her home and Buick LeSabre. That tip led to a yearlong grand jury investigation that culminated Thursday with charges against six men - including a lawyer, a real estate agent, and two funeral directors - who prosecutors say schemed to steal the dead South Philadelphia woman's rowhouse and car. "The facts in this case are disturbing and extremely sad," District Attorney Seth Williams said.

As they flock to urban areas, members of the so-called millennial generation are discovering that they prefer to get around by public transit, biking, or walking instead of driving, according to a report promoted Wednesday at Rutgers University's Camden, New Brunswick, and Newark campuses. "It's basically just saying that transportation investment should be used to accommodate us millennials much more, because we're going to be the people using them in the future," said Rutgers-Camden freshman Samantha Buchner, 18, a member of New Jersey Public Interest Research Group, which held the campus news events.

THE MEN on 15th Street near Erie Avenue in Tioga yesterday did everything they could to lift the 1979 Buick LeSabre off the little boy's bent, broken body after the car ran over him, pinning him to the street. One of them, who police said was the Buick's driver, brought out a jack to try to lift the car as the others tried to shift the weight of the massive vehicle off the child. But it was too late. The boy, 6, was dead under the mud-brown car. Medics pronounced it officially at 4:13 p.m., police said.

Continuing problems with communications software have further delayed the delivery of refurbished PATCO commuter railcars, officials said Wednesday. The faulty software deals with automatic train control for the cars, so it must be working properly before final operating tests can be completed, said Mike Venuto, chief engineer for the Delaware River Port Authority, owner and operator of PATCO. The final tests, which will involve running fully loaded trains for 500 miles without problems, have been delayed until later this month, Venuto said.

PARIS - On Avenue Montaigne, the heart of this city's fashion district, sits the Hotel Athénée, where rooms start at $1,820 a night. On this particular sun-laved September afternoon, there was a Bugatti Veyron parked in front of the hotel entrance. The Bugatti is the fastest, most powerful production car on Earth. When equipped with the 1,200-horsepower, 16-cylinder engine, it will top 250 m.p.h. - and $2 million. Parked nearby were five chauffeurs in white shirts and black German sedans, awaiting the return of their employers.
