The induction was held in conjunction with the National Auto Body Council (NABC) Recycled Rides Luncheon and Gifting, where five deserving families received fully restored vehicles donated by insurance companies and restored body shops nationwide.
Michael Albert Anderson was inducted into the Collision Industry Hall of Eagles for his dedication to the collision repair industry. Lauded for his knowledge and his willing to share it was undoubtedly some of the reasons why he was chosen to be a member of this collision Hall of Fame. Anderson is an industry consultant, coveted keynote speaker and writes a monthly column for Autobody News.
Since its creation in 1989, the Hall of Eagles has established itself as the most prestigious honor any collision repair industry professional can ever receive. Only a select few distinguished individuals are inducted into the Hall of Eagles through the nominations and vote of two-thirds of the current active members of this organization.
NABC has now donated a grand total of approximately 2,200 vehicles since the inception of the Recycled Rides Program back in 2007, with 50% of all the donated cars going to military veterans. This year, the NABC’s goal is to donate a total of 400 vehicles, which will surpass last year’s numbers significantly and make it an all-time record.
