"Aurora Junior High-built super car gets 358 miles per gallon"
The Junior High students managed to beat High School students from across the state.
A pull of a string and it's all engines go. "We have a four stroke engine. It's hooked up to a gear box," said Aurora SuperMileage Team member Nate Basham.
The driver, aptly known around the shop as "Rodeo," straps in and #17 takes off.
"I'm pretty proud of it because it took a long time for us to make it," said Aurora SuperMileage Team member Brett Schellen.
The car it isn't just a toy. "We were just nervous about our car looking the coolest I think," said Aurora SuperMileage Team member Caleb "Rodeo" Baker. ...
When asked what it was like competing against boys older than them, Scheller replied, "At first it was a little intimidating, but once we saw how they were doing it made us feel better."
Awesome. Go to it, Occupiers! ;-)
Many of the students worked on the car after school, on snow days, even on Saturdays. The Junior High Students even beat the state record by more than 30 miles per gallon. It was previously held by the Aurora High School team 4 years ago.
Just awesome. And incredibly hopeful. I have to believe, I do believe, that stuff like this is going on all over the country. It's just not part of the narrative, which is designed to keep us fearful, and consuming the goods and services that enslave us.
