A team of students from Eastern Oklahoma County Technology Center have advanced to the Hot Rodders of Tomorrow national competition.

From Sadie Heath’s article on The Oklahoman website:

The Eastern Oklahoma County Technology Center Aeromotive engine build team advanced to the national competition after ranking fourth out of 45 teams at the Hot Rodders of Tomorrow Aeromotive qualifying event in Lenexa, Kansas.

The Hot Rodders of Tomorrow is a nonprofit with a mission to develop today’s youth for the aftermarket racing, performance and automotive industry.

High school teams from across the United States compete against a clock to tear down and rebuild a 350-cubic-inch Chevy engine. The teams with the quickest time and points proceed to the national championship in Las Vegas for a chance to compete for the title and scholarship funds. The organization has awarded more than $15.5 million in scholarships.

Getting nostalgic about the good old days is easy, but many forget the struggles of the day.

Last month, I purchased a 1982 Chrysler New Yorker for $1,500. The car was previously owned by a technician who was moving to Arizona. It had 67,000 original miles. It would be my “beater with a heater” for this winter.

Under the hood is a 318 V8 with a Lean Burn feedback carburetor with a rudimentary engine control module attached to the air cleaner. The system could adjust the spark advance, change metering in the carburetor and even open a solenoid to vent the evaporative emissions from the fuel tank.
