Celebrating a Millionaire moment
Celebrating a Millionaire moment

A collaborative project between Penn College students and their Williamsport Area High School counterparts entered its final phase Monday morning, as a 1979 Lincoln Continental Mark V was adorned with the Millionaire logo to accent its new finish in cherry-and-white school colors. The car was donated to the high school’s automotive department by a Williamsport Area School District employee last year, and, with financial support from the WASD Education Foundation, has been given new life as a showpiece for parades, Homecoming and other events. Collision repair students from the School of Transportation & Natural Resources Technologies worked on the car for nearly a year, painstakingly painting and clear-coating the luxury coupe. Vinyl decals of the high school’s emblematic top hat, gloves and cane were fabricated in the college’s graphic design lab and affixed by faculty and students from the high school’s Career and Technical Education program. Penn College students from Shaun D. Hack’s Introduction to Non-Structural Collision Repair Applications class visited from an adjacent lab to watch the application. After some final touch-up of the vehicle’s trim in College Avenue Labs, the once-blue car will be returned to the district, where automotive students will be in charge of maintaining the “Millionaire-mobile.”
