Rylan Raynard and Brantly Carson have spent their grade twelve like most students, learning math and reading textbooks. However, they also spent the last year rebuilding a car.
"It had its ups and downs like any car build would go," shared Reynard. "But overall, I think it went good."
"Amber Fornwald, one of the teachers here at Lampman School, she actually inherited the car from her grandfather who passed away. So she had it sitting in her garage and it was last year around this time that she asked me and Brantly if we would work on it and fix it up for her as a project and get credit."
Reynard figured it couldn't be that hard, but the boys quickly discovered just how much work it was going to be.
"The biggest challenge would be all the wiring that had to go into it. There's a lot more wiring than you would think in an old car like that."
He added that nearly the entire car had to be rebuilt.
"From the ground up, except for the motor and the transmission, the whole drivetrain was good. Basically everything around that."
"We did a little bodywork as well, but we had taken it to Cactus Autobody. And they painted it also."
He added that finishing it and driving it around is the best part of the experience.
The two have completed their final exams and are now setting their sights on the future.
Reynard is looking at taking classes to become a heavy duty mechanic or maybe take a year off, while Carson is looking at taking the year and then going to school for Agriculture heavy duty mechanic.
They wanted to thank their teachers, Ms Fornwald and Mr Fieber for their help and the opportunity to complete the project.
