Jay Leno Visits PCT

On May 3rd, 2015, Mr. Jay Leno visited the campus of The Pennsylvania College of Technology, in Williamsport, PA. During his tour of the campus, Mr. Leno was shown around the auto restoration department. The students demonstrated various restoration techniques they employ. Mr. Leno was shown two cars that have ties to the Swigart Museum. The first was Pat Swigart's Wolfwagen. The students were finishing work Pat requested to have done to the car. Last year, the car won an award at The Elegance at Hershey. The second car was our 1916 Scripps Booth town car. Last year, the Scripps Booth was on display at The Petersen Museum in Los Angeles, CA. After it was returned to us, our museum was invited to show this car at the Elegance of Hershey on June 12th, 13th, and 14th of 2015. Since the car had not been driven in many years, we asked Penn Tech to inspect the car to insure it was roadworthy. The students were finishing additional work on this car before Mr. Leno's visit. Mr. Leno was shown the Scripps Booth and the Wolfwagen. Mr. Leno requested a test drive of both vehicles. The students were happy to grant Mr. Leno his request. Mr. Leno drove both cars, the Scripps Booth and the Wolfwagen.
