High School Auto Body Class Transforms Car into ‘Greased Lightning’

Where some people saw an eyesore, the auto body students at Crocus Plains Regional Secondary School in Brandon, Manitoba, Canada, saw potential.

There was a tree growing in the old 1950s junker. That’s right, a tree. Then again, it had been sitting in the middle of a field for a long time. But where some people saw an eyesore, the auto body students at Crocus Plains Regional Secondary School in Brandon, Manitoba, Canada, saw potential – potential to turn it into a prop for the school’s production of “Grease.”

The grade 9 and 10 students took the car, which was donated by a local salvage company, cut it in half and did everything from the body work to paint and wiring – and, of course, a wicked flame job.

Instructor Jeff Kasprick said that roughly 1,000 hours of work was put into the vehicle over a two-month period. Fellow instructor Carl Decosse said the students were used to putting cars back to pre-accident condition, so this project was unusual in that they were able to cut corners and cheat because it was only a stage prop.
