Scripps-Booth Model D

Students, from front, Ian M. Bachleda, Ryan J. Bollinger, Eugene J. Toner and Ryan J. Haslett, all enrolled in Penn College’s automotive restoration technology major, polish a one-of-a-kind 1916 Scripps-Booth Model D at the Elegance at Hershey, a world-class invitational of rare collector cars. At the request of the vehicle’s owner, the William E. Swigart Jr. Automobile Museum, the students restored the car – which hadn’t been driven since 1959 – to drivability for the event.
