Local museum works with school to restore old car

DAYTON, Ohio (WDTN) – A partnership between Ponitz Career Technology Center and Packard Museum are working restore a 1928 Packard.

The museum pulled it from a barn in Cincinnati and has not run since the 1970’s.

This is the oldest vehicle the Juniors and Seniors from Ponitz auto tech class have worked on.

“Modern cars have their challenges and old cars have their challenges. I wouldn’t say that one is easier or harder than the other. It’s just a different skill set and a different approach to solving problems, and I think it was fun to help make those connections,” Daniel Badger from the Packard Museum says.

The Packard Museum says there is still a market to restore old cars and the auto class teacher would like the students to work on one again.
