PPG will feature appearances by celebrities from the custom car, motorcycle and drag racing worlds, a display of customized cars and motorcycles, paintings by up-and-coming automotive artists and an array of custom-painted items including guitars with remarkable color schemes. In addition, PPG will highlight new automotive refinish products.

Visitors to the PPG booth will have the chance to meet celebrity painters Bobby Alloway (Alloway’s Hot Rod Shop), Dave and Jody Perewitz (Perewitz Cycle Fabrication), Charley Hutton (Charley Hutton’s Color Studio) 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. Each of these painters will be available to sign autographs and to discuss their painting techniques and the PPG products they use exclusively. 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.

Customized motorcycles will have their place in the PPG booth as well. Bill Steele (Steele Kustoms), Jeff Theisen and Dave Call (Gunslinger Custom Paint), and Dave and Jody Perewitz will exhibit examples of their award-winning work, also achieved with PPG products.
