Event Details

During a time of community unrest and uncertainty, specifically in the community in which Simeon Career Academy is located, Drive Our Future has answered the call to action by creating a workshop that will teach applicable skills needed in car restoration and uplift the Simeon Career Academy community. Participants in this workshop will help keep the community pride alive and promote unity where current events have threatened to divide, as they learn and apply several specialty skills used in the car restoration process today, to our restoration of “Blue Machine,” a 1983 Mercedes Benz Turbo 300D donated to the Drive Our Future Program by an Alumni of Neal F. Simeon Career Academy. Specifically, participants will replace sheet metal panels, learn how to fabricate floor panels, door bottoms, and replace rocker panels. Additionally, participants will learn basic MIG welding techniques.


(Wednesday) 9:00 am - 1:00 pm
