Auto Body Students Rebuild Police Cruiser Smashed During 2016 Cavaliers Championship Parade

Over the past year and a half, students in the auto body program at Max Hayes High School have been dismantling and rebuilding the cruiser, using donated materials from Sherwin-Williams and other companies in the Cleveland area.
