For the past 18 years, students in the Automotive Technology program at East Syracuse Minoa High School, have been involved in a very unique project. Each year, students have purchased a classic vehicle to restore and gain hands-on experience. When the vehicle nears completion, raffle tickets are sold and the the lucky winner announced in July each year.

The funds generated from the raffle are utilized to keep the restoration and raffle process going each year. A portion of the proceeds are also used to provide awards for students that pareticipate in the build.

Students are responsible for the build from start to finish. Learning life skills in areas such as budgeting, advertising, creative thinking, communication and collaborating. It goes without saying that he mechanical experiences students encountered touches each and every system within the vehicle.

We are very appreciative for all of our supporters over the past 18 years. There is no doubt, that without your support, what we do would not be possible. We are very grateful for your continued support.


Automotive Service Technology's goal is to give students the opportunity to learn the technical knowledge and skills necessary to enter into the automotive service industry. Coursework is designed to be at least 50% hands-on. Students are exposed to real-world projects.

Each year, a car/truck project provides students with a hands-on learning experience.
