Not everyone can say their car is displayed at one of the largest auto auctions in the world, but our students at the Alex Xydias Center for Automotive Arts (AXC) are experiencing it first hand!

Our auto students, alongside L.A. Roadster volunteers, built a beautiful 1932 Hi-Boy Roadster. Car enthusiasts will instantly recognize the car as one of the first in hot rod history. It’s fitting that our students chose this model, as Alex Xydias (the namesake of AXC) was one of the founders of the hot-rodding industry. 

Watch the car auction live Saturday, Jan. 30th at 8:30 p.m. MST on the Barrett-Jackson website! All proceeds from the sale of this automobile will benefit The Learning Centers at Fairplex.

The Alex Xydias Center for Automotive Arts is a two-year program that gives tudents the necessary confidence and hands-on experience needed to enter the automotive industry. Students explore concepts and build skills in basic mechanics, diagnosis and service, auto body, metal fabrication and restoration. To learn more about AXC, click here
