Mini mechanics given a new project

IF YOU’RE looking for your car, Kyabram P-12 College may have it.

Kyabram Police have donated a Mitsubishi Solara which was impounded after a Stanhope police pursuit in April to the VCAL and VET automotive students.

The car, which is currently without keys and a rear left-hand window, was found dumped the day after police attempted to stop its driver back in April.

The owner never came forward and there was no answer to the mobile number which was scribbled on a piece of paper advertising the car for sale.

And Ky P-12 got it at a steal, saving themselves $1000 (which said poster was advertising the car for) and saving police the hassle of taking it to the wreckers.

The car will be worked on and brought back to roadworthiness with the possibility it may one day be used for a driver education program.

And the students were straight into it, no more than 10 minutes after the car was off Salter’s tow truck it was on dolly wheels and in the workshop.

Automotive teacher Jamie Harding said it would be about three weeks before the car would be running and in an almost roadworthy state.

“The students can do everything in the workshop here, on the Falcon ute they’ve taken out the gearbox and replaced the clutch in it,” Mr Harding said.

“We had a horse float in here which they replaced the wheel bearings, the brakes, the rear lights and rewired the electrics for the brakes and lights on it.

“They can do everything like a regular workshop would.”
