SIOUX CITY, Iowa (KCAU) – Students at Western Iowa Tech got to show off their hard work Friday night, including cars they built from the ground up.
Friday evening was the 10th annual Show and Shine open house at the Sioux City college. The event lets the autobody students display the work they’ve done restoring cars. A 1955 Chevy Bel Air and an 1972 Chevy Blazer restored by the students.
Siouxlanders also got to bring their own cars and motorcycles to show off, giving students a chance to talk shop.
“Well for them to even have an opportunity to kind of socialize and meet all these other guys who have been doing this for years and for decades it’s just great for the kids, a great opportunity for them. It’s just fun for us as instructors to see all the hard work that goes into these projects that these kids do and kind of see the final result,” WITCC Automotive Instructor Shane Sampson said.
Even though the event was free, the refreshments that were available for sale at the event will go to student scholarships at the college.
