Line 120: This isn't a pointer, so why are you dereferencing it?
Line 126: You have a pointer here, so why aren't you dereferencing it?

You will definitely want to look through your code for similar pointer issues.

You have bracket mismatches on the following lines:
161 (close brackets missing)
171 (close brackets missing)
173 (open bracket missing)
182 (close bracket missing)

Good luck.

This code compiles, but gives weird answers. You might need to fix your calculations.
Thanks guys for the support and help. Will work on it a little more and see if i can get it running now. Will let ya know how it goes! Just got out of the hospital so back to what i like lol
Run-Time Check Failure #2 - Stack around the variable 'vehicle' was corrupted.
Okay so I am having no success it getting this error to leave and don't understand or maybe just not seeing it, I thought it had to do with pointers and too much info assigned to variable but I don't see the issue with mine. Help?
