MCC Street Rod

MCC Street Rod at show

The project that started in the summer of 2014 is a 1933 Ford Redneck Street Rod.

Auto Collision Technology and Automotive Technology students were instrumental in making the decisions for color, interior, engine and transmission. MCC faculty led the discussions and directed the students in their installation processes. The Precision Machine Technology and Welding Technology programs were called upon to design and create some special components for the Street Rod.

This project created many challenges for the students to overcome not the least of which was learning to work as a team on a given project. The body had to be removed and prepared for painting. The chassis and running gear were cleaned and prepped. The brakes, engine, automatic transmission and all components needed to be installed. Wiring the car was a major undertaking started at the South Omaha Campus and completed at the Applied Technology Center. The AC as well as the finishing touches were done at the ATC completing the project.

We are very excited to bring this new project to students through the generosity of a private individual, said MCC President Randy Schmailzl in 2014. “Bringing hands-on training to the classroom is what community colleges do best. This is yet another opportunity to provide education that sets us apart from other institutions.”
