Held August 23 at MTEC in Morgantown, WV, the event, which served as a fundraiser for the school, featured antique, classic, and advanced technology vehicles.
MTEC has been an NAFTC consortium member since 2010.
NAFTC Director Bill Davis and Graduate Assistant Heather Sammons attended and displayed the NAFTC’s Chevy Volt plug-in hybrid vehicle and Nissan LEAF battery electric vehicle.
“Supporting MTEC in their efforts to provide services to the community is something we are happy to do,” said Davis. “It was interesting seeing the old and new come together, all the great classic cars and our alternative fuel vehicles. We’d like to thank MTEC for allowing us to work together on this endeavor.”
There were more than 50 cars on display and games and activities were available for children. Prizes were awarded to the owners of the cars on display and a raffle was held.
“The MTEC car show was a great opportunity for the NAFTC to interact with the public and educate them about alternative fuels and alternative fuel vehicles,” said Davis.
