Students from Methacton High School and Temple University prepared electric cars for this year's Philadelphia Auto Show.

Methacton Electric Car Club

Students from Methacton's Electric Car Club created an eclectic 1969 Spitfire from scratch, using two donated cars from Auto Dealers Association of Greater Philadelphia.

They are also presenting a Lomax-style car from the 1930s called The Lorax.

The Lorax has been part of the school's program for more than 20 years.

Temple Formula Racing

Student organization Temple Formula Racing has prepared its 2023 race car for this year's Auto Show.

The car placed 24th overall out of 121 teams competing at Michigan International Speedway, which made it the top team in Pennsylvania last year.

CHOP & Charity

Since 1986 the Black Tie Tailgate Gala at the Philadelphia Auto Show has raised more than $10 million for Children's Hospital of Philadelphia.

The partnership between the hospital and the Auto Dealers Association of Greater Philadelphia has contributed to groundbreaking work at the hospital and impactful changes for the doctors and nurses who work there.

And that is just part of the charitable impact the More Than Auto Dealers Association takes part in throughout the year.
