SALEM, N.H. - Vocational students at a New Hampshire high school will get some valuable hands-on experience thanks to a car dealership in Massachusetts.

McGovern Ford of Lowell delivered a brand new Lincoln Aviator to the automotive department at Salem High School Monday morning.

Students will be able to take the SUV apart to learn how it works and how to repair it. Typically, students learn on cars that are ten years old or older, which means the information is outdated. 

The dealership said that learning about the newest cars is incredibly important because of recent electronic advances.

"We're trying to make sure they're working on cars that we're working on currently, so that when they come to the dealership, they know what's going on and they have information and experience with electronics," Rose Cray, the Service Director at McGovern Ford of Lowell, told WBZ-TV.

This isn't the first car the dealership has donated. Last week, they gave a brand new Ford Mustang to Greater Lowell Technical High School.
