The star at last week’s Philadelphia auto1 show wasn’t a sports car or an economy car. It was a sports-economy car. Performance and practicality under a single hood2 - car buyers have been waiting decades for this.

Anything goes 0 to 60 in four seconds - that piques3 my interest.

Yeah, I don’t think you could do that with a hybrid4.

I like it. It does get 51 miles to a gallon and on soybean bio-diesel to boot.

This is fabulous5 that they've done. I think they did one hell of a job.

So, who do we have to thank? Ford6? Toyota? Ferrari? Nope! Just Victor, David, Cheeseborough, Bruce, and Kosi, these high school auto shop students along with a handful of other kids from West Philadelphia High School, built the car as an after-school project. It took them over a year, rummaging7 for parts, configuring wires, learning as they went.

All these rubber mouths, mount the motor to the frame.

Impressed? Teacher Simon Hauger says, wait till you hear this: we have a number of high school dropouts, we have a number that have been removed for disciplinary reasons and they end up with us.

Kosi Harman was in a gang at his old school, a punk and a terrible student.

Agree. I was just getting by the skin of my teeth, C’s and D’s. I came here, and now I’m a straight-A student.

Really?

Yes, sir.

Take the brief or put the Proper.

If you give kids that have been stereotyped9 as not being able to do anything an opportunity to do something great, they will step up.

They are clean, brake fluid are cool.

Obviously, this story says a lot about the potential of our young people. Unfortunately, it also says a lot about our auto industry. (Yeah.) Now start playing hybrid catch-up to the Bad News Bears of auto shop.

Yeah, it hit me that, look, we made this work, we are not geniuses, so why aren’t other people doing it? Kosi thinks he knows. It’s big oil companies. (All right.)

They are making billions upon billions of dollars, right? And when this car sells, then their billions upon billions will go down to low billions upon billions.

stereotype8: decide unfairly that a type of person's inability to do sth due to their race, sex or social class. stereotype sb as sth
