Auto Restoration: ‘A Melting Pot of Industries’

Mike Spinelli’s “/Drive” channel visits main campus in a newly produced video that showcases Penn College’s automotive restoration technology major. The 10-minute piece features interviews with students Andrew B. Switch, Joseph M. Kretz and Sean M. Hunter, as well as instructor Roy H. Klinger, who discuss the research involved in restoring a vintage vehicle. The production also includes a peek at the technological advances – waterborne paint and additive manufacturing, among them – that give vintage vehicles a 21st-century rebirth.
