Get college credits for restoring cars!

Templeton Hall houses the nationally recognized Automotive Restoration Technology Program. The spacious 33,000-square-foot facility is equipped with specialized equipment and tools to support the unique curriculum of the auto restoration program.

America’s Car Museum (ACM - LeMay Museum) has established a partnership with McPherson College to promote both institutions and their work in automotive preservation and education.

Through the alliance, ACM, set to open in June 2012, will provide vehicles and educational opportunities for McPherson College, a liberal arts college located in McPherson, Kan., that offers the country’s only four-year degree program in automotive restoration

The relationship provides an outlet for ACM to expand on its educational mission, as the museum will offer regular internships to McPherson College students providing practical work experience with more than 500 vintage cars at ACM. The museum will also supply cars to McPherson College for on-campus use in automotive restoration and preservation courses, including work on project vehicles.
