A carefully refurbished 1965 Ford Mustang, the genesis of Penn College’s automotive restoration technology major, is back on display at the Antique Automobile Club of America Museum in Hershey. “We support the future of the automotive restoration industry and we are pleased to include this exhibit,” museum officials noted in a newsletter announcement. “The Mustang featured in this exhibit was restored by Penn College students as part of our ongoing collaborative partnership.” The award-winning work by students, performed during the 2009-10 school year, directly led to a popular associate-degree program through which the technicians of tomorrow research and restore the priceless vehicles of yesteryear. The exhibit is sponsored by the Members 1st Federal Credit Union.
