Representatives of the Gettysburg Region of the Antique Automobile Club of America, many of them in classic cars, traveled to Penn College on Friday to showcase their vehicles; meet with the Institutional Advancement Office; and interact with students, faculty and administration from the School of Transportation & Natural Resources Technologies. The opportunity was embraced by automotive and collision repair majors, who took advantage of the closer look afforded by the generous and trusting owners. The club’s visit –  timed to a scholarship fund established  by its members – also coincided with an end-of-the-week cookout for students, and included lunch at the Thompson Professional Development Center and tours of instructional labs.
