Another Student-Restored 1968 Mustang To Be Raffled For Habitat For Humanity
Here is another story regarding some students who were able to restore a 1968 Ford Mustang. This black beauty will be raffled off next spring with all proceeds going to Habitat for Humanity.
Celine Clark, A 12th grade student at Mount Royal Collegiate, proudly worked on the Mustang everyday in automotive class last year. She worked very hard on the interior and had the chance to showcase the car at the latest Draggins Rod and Custom Car Show.
“People thought I was just there cheerleading for my school,” Celine said. She mentioned that everyone seemed to be shocked that she knew so much about the Mustang. She really enjoys automobiles and learned a lot of information while working on the interior.
This car has been worked on by the students of Mount Royal for six years, says principle Dave Sloboda. This amazing project involved more than 150 students from the salvaging the frame from scraps to hand-stitching the interior.
The school has a long relationship with Habitat for Humanity, who builds affordable housing projects within the city. The students in the Mount Royal carpentry program have been helping build homes with them since 2004.
“People are pumped up,” said Sloboda. The raffle tickets are only $5 and going fast. The drawing will be held on June 2011.
