High School Build Project III

My name is Jeff Ferguson(Farmtrucks) and I teach Auto Mechanics at Hancock County High School in Sneedville, TN, where I have taught for 20 yrs.

To try and get my students and more students interested in my classes, we are doing another project build.

Build plan is going to be a 72 c10 "Patina" pickup, 5.3 LS, 4l60e, A/C, suspension swap, and various other things(keeping paint work to a minimum, because we don't have a paint booth)

Sponsors will be recognized in build thread. After completion the truck will be auctioned off on E-bay. All proceeds will be going back to my class fund, so hopefully we can keep doing this ever year.

If you have an interest in helping with this project, please let me know.

We have had success with the last two years project trucks. Here are the links:

Re: High School Build Project III

This year will be a challenge, because this group of students are VERY VERY green - most of them are freshman.
In one class I raised the hood -- and 1 girl said "WOW that a straight 6" and I turned to the rest of the class and asked them what did she mean by that - and they didn't have a clue.
This semester I have 5 girls and 20 boys that will be working on the truck.

Re: High School Build Project III

Awesome man... Looking forward to this! I have an idea, maybe you could come up with a parts needed list so if a member happens to have what you need it could be donated. Im sure people who cant afford to send cash would still like to help out if they have what you need.
