Week four started with the same question asked every week: “What car is under that cover?” The kids are all curious and fascinated by the many cars sprinkled throughout the shop, but the one that has garnered the most attention is the one under the cover: a 1967 Chevy Impala. The owner has chosen to store this very long car at the shop to protect it from the elements. Other favorites continue to be the Aston Martin and the Lamborghini:
Students observed both body work and painting in action. This picture below shows a person restoring a front end that is giving him a bit of a challenge.

Each week the parts related to the TSS Hot Rod increases in number. This week, students were introduced to tire wheel control arms, spindles, tie rod ends and other suspension hardware.
It was another great visit to Altezza Restorations. The kids are ready to get their hands dirty and help install this engine when the time is right.
