PPG Announces 2010 Show Truck Schedule

PPG has released the 2010 schedule of appearances for popular show truck – a traveling exhibit of PPG paint displays and products – which will make 21 stops across the country from March through October at prominent truck, car and hot rod shows. These include events sponsored by the GoodGuys Rod & Custom Association, National Street Rod Association, Antique Truck Historical Society and other truck- and car-focused organizations.

The 75-foot 2007 Freightliner Coronado tractor-trailer rig is custom-painted in PPG Vibrance Collection colors and features what PPG says is some of the best flame design work ever seen. The truck’s finish was applied by a crew from PPG’s Refinish Training, Product Marketing and Color Technical teams.

PPG driver Chad Hook will steer the Freightliner to all its destinations starting with the 1st annual Spring Nationals in Scottsdale, Ariz., March 12, and concluding with the 17th annual Southeastern Nationals in Charlotte, North Carolina, Oct. 29. Stop by any of the year’s listed events to get a closer look and learn more about the Vibrance Collection paint and techniques used.
