Refurbished Car Sale a Soaring Success

On Saturday, May 10, 2014 at Thomas Edison High School, approximately 40 students demonstrated their acquired professional skills at the Montgomery County Students Automotive Trades Foundation (ATF) refurbished car sale. The sale ran from 9:00 - 11:00 a.m. During this time, students assisted customers to test driving cars, as well as communicating about the cars they reconditioned. At 11:00 a.m., the automobile lottery drawing occurred to determine the order of purchasers for the 26 cars that were available for sale. Many of the cars available were sold, but a few still remain availible for purchase.


The remaining inventory of cars will be sold by the Foundations Office, 12501 Dalewood Drive, Silver Spring, MD 20906. Interested buyers should contact Mike Snyder at 301.929.2164 or Michael_C_Snyder@mcpsmd.org .


Additionally, the Automotive Trades Foundation relies heavily on support from the community. The ATF is always in need of used cars. To donate a vehicle or monitor, please contact Mike Snyder for cars. Please visit our informational page for car donations at www.cars2donate.org
