SFCC NEWS RELEASE
Santa Fe Community College’s Automotive Technologies student car club – the Broken Parts Club – is hosting a car show from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Friday, April 21 outside the Automotive Technologies Center on campus, 6401 Richards Avenue. Those who would like to show their automobile should register as soon as possible by contacting the Director of Automotive Technologies Julia Furry at firstname.lastname@example.org or by phone at 505-428-1177. Space is limited to 36 vehicles. The public is invited to attend the show.
“This event has turned out to be a lot of fun. We ask the car owners to explain what’s special about their vehicle. The winners primarily get bragging rights, some prizes of tools and a special trophy that will be made by the SFCC welding department. They are using pistons from engines to make the trophies,” Furry said.
Winners will be in the following categories: Domestic, European or Japanese. Lowriders are welcome. The student club’s members are studying Automotive Technologies at SFCC.
A 17,000 square foot state-of-the-art Automotive Technologies Center offers a well-equipped space that provides students with the background and knowledge to earn the Automotive Service Excellence (ASE) Certification in up to eight competency areas: Automotive Engine Repair, Auto Maintenance and Light Truck Repair, Automatic Transmission Transaxle, Automotive Heating and Air Conditioning, Brakes, Manual Transmission and Drive Train, Steering and Suspension, Electricity/Electronic Systems and Engine Performance. Students can also earn an A.A.S. in Automotive Technologies.
The Automotive Technologies program has recently earned accreditation from the National Institute for Automotive Service Excellence (ASE).
