The car has been restored to resemble the Model-T that Feaster’s grandfather drove in Missouri when Feaster was a boy. Students from CPTC’s Automotive Collision & Restoration and Automotive Technician programs have spent countless hours over the years to restore the vehicle to like new condition.

“Clover Park put out the call for someone to help with this project and I answered,” said Pendress. “Working side by side with students in order to restore this great old car has been a fun experience."

“The training I received from Clover Park enabled me to have a successful career, said Feaster.” I wanted a way to give back to the college, and donating this car seemed like a good long-term project for the students.”

“The car has become a mascot for the automotive programs,” said instructor Wayne Bridges. “It is a great symbol of the quality of work our programs and students are capable of delivering.”
