Students at Park Vista Community High School Automotive Academy in Lake Worth, FL, are restoring a vintage 1987 Cadillac hearse.

From Jan Engoren’s article on the Sun Sentinel website:

After their classic car show in mid-December, the Park Vista Community High School Automotive Academy students have joined forces with their peers in the medical and digital media academies work together on their latest project – restoring a vintage 1987 Cadillac hearse and renovating and retrofitting it to become a state-of-the-art ambulance.

“This project will be good for the academies here at Park Vista,” automotive academy instructor Steve Moldoff said. “It will help get the word about what we have to offer here and we will be able to showcase the work the students do here at school.”

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.
