Penn College Classic Cruisers, a student organization whose mission includes promoting interest in and preservation of vintage automobiles, did just that through a Saturday car show on the Carl Building Technologies Center parking lot. “We appreciated the support from everyone who showed up that day,” said club President Riley E. Mahl, of Easton, an automotive restoration technology student. About 50 people were on hand to appreciate the 25 vehicles displayed on the grounds; the gorgeous day included food, awards and giveaways, and optional tours of instructional labs.
