RCC class transforms student’s future dream car into reality

After taking RCC's Automotive Body Repair class, Tommy Alderin is driving his dream car.

ASHEBORO (Jan. 4, 2021)

Tommy Alderin found his dream car in Yanceyville. He just didn’t know it yet.

For years, Alderin drove his rusty 1968 Mustang to church. One day, the pastor at his church, who was taking an auto body class at Randolph Community College, suggested that Alderin sign up for the course, and fix up his Mustang.

“I said, ‘Yeah, but they’ll laugh at me.’” Alderin, 58, said. “He said, ‘No, they won’t. That ain’t the way it is.’ So I went over there and took it and then, wham ... I stayed with the course. There’s a lot of work involved, but it pays off in the long run.

“I wasn’t a real car buff either. The [Richard Petty Education Center] is nice. You’ve got a paint booth. You’ve got a lift. You’ve got all the materials you need. I just enjoy being around the guys. They’re talking their car talk and I’m learning. Steve [Smith] is a very good instructor.”

Two years later, Alderin is driving around in his restored Mustang — and hooked on RCC’s auto body classes.
