 NWTC students fuel annual Car Show and Swap

 5/1/2014

Northeast Wisconsin Technical College welcomes auto enthusiasts and their rides for the NWTC Auto Club’s 28th Annual Car Show and Swap Meet Sunday, May 4 from 10 a.m. – 4 p.m. on the Green Bay campus (2740 W. Mason St., Green Bay). The daylong event features hundreds of automobile makes and models, food, contests, music, and activities for all ages.

Attendees can vote for their favorite ride in 18 car and motorcycle categories. Several other competitions - including contests for loudest stereo, exhaust, as well as a creeper race – take place throughout the day. Door prizes will be offered from 10 a.m. – 2 p.m., and include gift certificates, tool kits and apparel.

The NWTC Car Show and Swap Meet is organized by NWTC’s Auto Club.  All proceeds benefit the club, and support service-learning opportunities for automotive students. At noon, the NWTC Auto Club will present a rehabbed 2006 Ford Fusion, purchased with funds from last year’s show, to House of Hope, a Green Bay shelter for homeless pregnant and parenting women. Napa Auto Parts donated hundreds of dollars of free parts for the car.

More than 7,000 people attended last year’s NWTC Auto Show and Swap Meet. Approximately 500 cars were on display.

“The event just keeps on getting bigger and better,” said Mark Ledvina, NWTC Automotive Technician instructor and club advisor. “The attendees have a blast, and our students get a great learning experience. They put a lot of work into the event and fixing up the donated car. They get to pay it forward by helping someone in need.”

Admission is $3 per person, and children 12 and under and seniors are free. To receive $1 off, attendees are encouraged to bring a non-perishable food item that will be donated to NWTC’s Shared Harvest Food Cupboard. The event will take place rain or shine.
