Along the way, they learned the importance of teamwork, critical thinking, paint material processes, and spray gun techniques.

We are still considering what to do with them. They will likely be sold to benefit the students in the program. Stay tuned!

Do the students get to keep their pedal car or are they sold or donated somewhere?

Great Job....the colors are Awesome...!!

Now thats an excellent way to generate some cash flow for the program! Custom built pedal cars! Dang sign me up! Id place an order for 2

An excellent downsized way to challenge the students' abilities and then show their results ! Very cool. Now I just need to get my ShrinkRay gun working...

Nice work, my auto upholstery shop in New Jersey is looking for skilled individuals to take over an almost 90 year old business. Anyone interested?

The one class no matter how many times I measured and took my time it still came out looking like garbage.

At least one AMC fan there.
