Today’s image is a press photo that appears to have been taken in the early-sixties of a high school Auto Shop class and garage; the name of the school and its location are both unknown. The instructor of the class is standing with his back to the camera at a work bench just to the left of the 1957 Ford two-door hardtop hood. The young man across from the teacher with the white short sleeve shirt is a look-a-like of the late racing car driver Dale Earnhardt.
At the far-right of the bottom of the image are an o.h.v. straight six-cylinder engine and behind it appears to be a Ford Motor Company Y-Block V-8 engine? On the left side of the photo are work benches with boys working on sub-assemblies and at the rear engines and short blocks.
