Western Iowa Tech Community College (WITCC) will hold its eighth annual Show & Shine open house event to display outstanding vehicles and related technologies on Wednesday, May 10, from 5 to 8 p.m.
In conjunction with the Tri-State Cruisers, auto enthusiasts club, the event will be held at WITCC’s main campus in parking lot 4 at 4647 Stone Ave. in Sioux City.
Highlights of the event include the unveiling of two WITCC project cars, 1933 Ford Roadster and 1966 C10 Chevy truck. These projects are a cooperative effort of students in several programs: auto body, automotive technology, and audio and video production as well as the official start of raffle ticket sales for last year’s project car, a 1977 Corvette.
The 1933 Ford Roadster raffle will begin at the 2018 Show & Shine. However, the 1966 C10 will not be raffled off. This truck WITCC will keep and be utilized in parades and displays as part of WITCC’s Project-Based Learning initiative. WITCC has also been invited to bring the '66 C10 truck to the SEMA show in Las Vegas this fall to put on display. The automotive programs are very excited for the opportunity to showcase its students’ hard work on a national level.
Tours of the auto body facility will be available, as will demonstrations of the paint simulator. Food and refreshments will be available for purchase. Proceeds of all fundraising will go to WITCC automotive student scholarships. The Show & Shine is free and open to the public. All are encouraged to bring their own car or motorcycle. All makes and models are welcome.
