From Rich Harbert’s article on the Wicked Local Plymouth website:

Students in the technical studies program at Plymouth South High School are punching their way back in time, rivet by rusty rivet.

With a ball peen hammer, a center punch and plenty of 1/8-inch drill bits, the students in the automotive collision and repair program are slowly disassembling a Model T Ford that came off the assembly line 91 years ago.

“Think about it,” collision and repair instructor Chris Baker said as freshman Dan Hadfield went to work on an impossibly rusted bolt from the car’s deteriorating cab. “The last time anyone put a tool on that was 91 years ago. It’s kind of like archeology, isn’t it?”
