From GWINNETTDAILYPOST.COM:

The challenge was rolled out on Tuesday in front of a group of some of the best students at Maxwell High School of Technology.

Take a 2003 Chevrolet Impala with 155,000 miles on it — valued at $3,000 — and turn it into an award-winner. The silver sedan was introduced to 14 Maxwell students who were hand-picked to participate in a nationwide vehicle restoration contest put on by Quaker State. The school also conducted a baseline horsepower test on a portable dyno for a pre-competition starting point.

“It’s more fun to get the experience and also to represent Maxwell,” senior Brandon Szczesny said. “It’s going to be more fun than it is work.”

Added junior Layla Ponce-Pena, “I don’t think we look at it like work. I think we look at it like the experience of learning and developing our teamwork.”
