Refurbished Car Sale a Soaring Success

On Saturday, February 21, 2015 at Damascus High School, Old Man Winter huffed, puffed, and let the snow fall. However, the Montgomery County Students Automotive Trades Foundation (ATF) conducted its second refurbished car and computer sale of the year. In order to keep customers, students, and staff safe, the sale was shortened and ran from 9:00 a.m. – 10:15 a.m. due to the worsening road conditions. During this time, students assisted customers to test drive cars. At 10:30 a.m., the automobile lottery drawing occurred to determine the order of purchasers for the 23 cars that were available for sale. Despite having to close the sale early, the majority of the cars were claimed.

The remaining inventory of cars and computers 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 for cars.   

There is one more sale scheduled for this year on Saturday, May 9, 2015 at Thomas Edison High School from 9:00 am – 11:00 am.  Please check  www.cars2purchase.org at the end of April for a list of the cars that should be available to purchase at the sale. 

Additionally, the Automotive Trades Foundation and Information Technology Foundation rely heavily on support from the community. The ATF is always in need of used cars. To donate a vehicle, please contact  Mike Snyder for cars. Please visit our informational page
