Seminole State’s Automotive Department will host a microcar show on Friday, March 26, at 10:30 a.m. in the CFADA Professional Automotive Training Center showroom on the Sanford/Lake Mary Campus.
At least 12 of these restored, vintage cars will be on display, and microcar owners and enthusiasts will be on hand to provide information about the cars.
