BASF Sponsors Automotive Educational Day

BASF Automotive Refinish Solutions recently cooperated with Autorama and the International Show Car Association – which sanctions the largest group of indoor car shows produced in the United States and Canada – to host an educational day for Michigan area students who participate in automotive classes.

According to the ISCA, 3,300 students representing more than 60 high schools and community colleges throughout Michigan and a few out of state institutions attended the 2008 event held at Cobo Hall in Detroit.

The goals of Autorama Educational Day are to expose students to opportunities in the specialty automotive aftermarket industry; allow students to view talents of the participants who have handcrafted many of the vehicles being shown at Autorama, provide a forum for students to view firsthand many of North America’s finest show vehicles, many of which have been featured in magazines and television programs; and provide an opportunity for students to visit with many of the car owners and builders.
