"I'm not sure if it can run yet, but it turned over." The seventh-period class received a 1922 Studebaker from the Plumas County Museum last school year, with the hopes of getting the classic car running. The plan is to restore the car so it can be used as a show car in parades. So far, the task has proven to be more difficult than the class originally anticipated. Last year, the projected date of completion was June 2014. Last week, Kelsch projected a more reasonable date of June 2015. One of the problems the class faced this past year was a lack of available parts. Currently, Kelsch is in talks with a junkyard in Kansas that may have the parts QHS' students need to complete the restoration.
