The truck’s entire 2017 schedule was recently announced by PPG. The appearances include car, truck and hot rod shows and events sponsored by the Goodguys Rod & Custom Association and other prominent automotive enthusiast groups.

The show truck, a 75-foot 2016 Freightliner Cascadia tractor-trailer rig, sports a striking paint scheme created by Steve Breakfield and his creative team at Motorhead Racing and Design Co. in Charlotte, N.C. The unique motif is reminiscent of the American flag’s stars and stripes and displays the spirited colors, radical graphics and matchless special effects PPG’s products inspire and deliver. Gerber Collision & Glass in Grand Rapids, Mich., executed Breakfield’s design using premium PPG Delfleet Evolution products including F3995 Epoxy Primer, the DBC Basecoat System and F3921 2.1 VOC Clearcoat.

This year, PPG’s Keith MacDonald will guide the truck. A veteran driver with more than 30 years of on-the-road experience, MacDonald slides into the driver’s seat, taking over for the recently retired Chad Hook who had been at the wheel since 1999. MacDonald will cover approximately 30,000 to 35,000 miles annually, steering the truck coast to coast.

PPG is inviting truck and car fans to visit the show truck wherever it stops. Amateur and professional custom car painters, builders and buffs will find the truck to be a great opportunity to learn about PPG’s array of paint products and the variety of techniques available to create outstanding finishes.
