LAWRENCEVILLE — The challenge was rolled out on Tuesday in front of a group of some of the best students at Maxwell High School of Technology.

Take a 2003 Chevrolet Impala with 155,000 miles on it — valued at $3,000 — and turn it into an award-winner. The silver sedan was introduced to 14 Maxwell students who were hand-picked to participate in a nationwide vehicle restoration contest put on by Quaker State. The school also conducted a baseline horsepower test on a portable dyno for a pre-competition starting point.
