Charley Hutton greets a fan.Famous painter Charley Hutton of Charley Hutton’s Color Studio was all smiles yesterday as he signed autographs for his legion of fans at PPG booth 24501 in the Racing & Performance section.

Skeletons driving cars and riding motorcycles painted with PPG products overlooked his shoulder as Hutton signed posters in PPG’s Western-themed display. Tumbleweeds and cattle skulls completed the "Watering Hole" look designed to draw attention to PPG’s DPLV 2.1 VOC-compliant series of epoxy primers; two new waterborne primers, Envirobase High Performance EPW115 and Aquabase Plus P950-5505; new colors for the Ditzler Big Flake line; and colors and effects for the Vibrance Collection.

Hutton has accumulated an array of notable honors during his career, including two Ridler awards, several Street Rod of the Year and Custom Rod of the Year awards, and an America’s Most Beautiful Roadster award. He gained national recognition through the Discovery Channel’s "American Hot Rod," TLC’s "Overhaulin’" and on Hot Rod TV. His shop, Charley Hutton’s Color Studio, is located in Nampa, Idaho, where he uses PPG Automotive Refinish products exclusively.

Other celebrities who will be signing autographs at the PPG booth this week include Bobby Alloway (Alloway’s Hot Rod Shop), Dave and Jody Perewitz (Perewitz Cycle Fabrication), and Tom and Mitch Kelly (Kelly & Son Crazy Painters) – all of whom are well known for their unique custom paint designs for cars, trucks and motorcycles and have racked up numerous awards for their work. NHRA champion drag racers John Force, Courtney Force, Mike Neff and Robert Hight from the legendary John Force Racing team will also be on hand to greet visitors and answer questions about their winning ways.
