The Franklin County High School automotive program has repaired a 1993 Honda Civic and will sell it at auction to raise money for the program.

Students in the automotive technology and automotive collision classes have fixed up several vehicles in the past to raise money for their program.

"From time to time, we get a donated vehicle," said instructor Jeff Heinbaugh. "We can fix it up, sell it to the highest bidder, and put the money back into the program."

The class gets their fixer-uppers from public donations. "A lot of them are not able to be repaired enough for sale," said Heinbaugh.

The civic has a new clutch, new break job and a fresh cleaning, but will need new tires and a windshield.

It is a 5-speed with 187,000 miles and is being sold "as is."

Interested buyers should call in their bids to 540-489-2036. The auction will run for 10 days. The person with the highest bid gets the car.
