South Elgin to SEMA| 06/30/2017

High School Auto Shop classes are not as commonplace as they once were, but thanks to Schertz, South Elgin High students have had many opportunities to grow their wrenching skills. Current and past programs that the students have taken part in include the Hot Rodders of Tomorrow Engine Challenge, Skills USA, Ford Triple-A Challenge and the OTC Carburetor Challenge. Steve’s crew recently caught our attention when we received info on the school’s latest project, a pro-touring 1937 Chevrolet truck.
