Gunn High School students chose to create a replica of the Pizza Planet delivery truck made famous by Pixar's “Toy Story” as their LeMons entry.
“I try to keep it interesting with cool projects like the ‘Pizza Planet Truck,’” said Mika Camicia, Gunn High School’s auto tech instructor.
Camicia and his wife are both Sports Car Club of America (SCCA) champions and something of racing legends themselves in the San Francisco Bay Area.
Camicia would also like to thank Almost Everything for sponsoring the team once again. “It's very hard to find funding or support for this kind of stuff,” said Camicia.
Frank Barnard, Almost Everything general manager, said, “Kids that learn to build and race cars for the 24 Hours of LeMons better understand the need for safety, the potential and limitations of cars in general, and the potential consequences of an accident. It's a great education.”
