Automotive Skills Project - 1926 Model T Pickup
The Red Flag Horseless Carriage Motor Tour is partnering with DMACC Automotive Program and other educational organizations to restore a 1926 Model T Pickup.
As the automotive industry moves to increased levels of technology there are certain basic skills that the entry level professional needs to have – process knowledge, basic tool skills, mechanical aptitude, sheet metal, painting, testing along with results-oriented training. Technology levels and knowledge are important, but the basic skills can be taught on the vintage and earlier automobiles.
This project will allow students to tackle a project from beginning to completion, manage the planning, process management, expenses and testing. The added benefit is for students to be a part of the project where their work can truly be tested, and performance measured.
