Woman wins PT Cruiser in contest

STEUBENVILLE, Ohio (AP) -- She couldn't hold it any longer.
After spending nearly 21 days in a PT Cruiser, Delores Milewsky left the car Thursday morning, stating, "I don't think I'm going to make it ... I really have to use the restroom."
Milewsky, 74, of Wintersville, gave up her spot, leaving Cathie Llewellyn the last woman standing -- or sitting -- in the competition for the convertible.
The two women became friends as the contest crept on. They outlasted three other competitors who dropped out a few days after the contest began on June 3.
With only four five-minute breaks each day, the women passed time in the car with crossword puzzles and books.
Milewsky and Llewellyn, 57, of Steubenville, both said they were looking forward to showers and hot meals when they get home.
The contest was sponsored by a car dealership, the Fort Steuben Mall and a local TV station.
Steubenville is 95 miles southeast of Cleveland.
