College’s Restoration Camp Featured in National Classic-Car Blog

Penn College’s second annual Automotive Restoration Camp, to be offered June 17-20, is featured in a recent edition of Hemmings Daily. As instructor Roy H. Klinger points out in the article, “auto restoration spans a range of disciplines,” and the camp is the best way to give those considering a future in the trade a sampling of each. The overnight camp – among the array of engaging opportunities to be held on campus – will include introductions to upholstery, metalforming and sheet-metal working; hands-on instruction in pinstriping and use of the paint simulator; and a spin in the college-owned Ford Model T. Attendees will also enjoy a field trip to the Eagles Mere Auto Museum in nearby Sullivan County, which houses roughly 75 cars from the 1950s and ’60s, and, in addition to knowledge gained, can take home their upholstery and metal-shaping projects.
Automotive Restoration Camp is filled, but a waiting list is being compiled should vacancies arise.
