Hoping to encourage more teenagers to become automotive technicians, an area car dealership has donated two 1997 Jettas to Venice High School. "We were having a real difficult time finding new technicians," said Dennis Erickson, the service manager at Volkswagen Santa Monica Corp.

"They need more technical knowledge today but they don't get any credit."
