    • Minnesota West Auto Body auction

    • A crowd of more than 200 people were on hand at the Minnesota West campus in Granite Falls on Saturday as Fitzner Auctioneers sold, piece by piece, the various tools, equipment and supplies from the school’s now shuttered Auto Body program. Included in the sale were a car alignment rack, a car frame straightener, a large paint and paint drying booth and a school-owned 1929 Ford Coupe with a Model A body design. Many of the bidders were former Auto Body students as well as area and regional auto body shop owners and employees. The sale also included seven machines from the school’s Machine Tool Technology shop and other unneeded school equipment.
