PPG says it’s planning for an upbeat presence at the 2010 SEMA show in Las Vegas, Nevada at the Las Vegas Convention Center Nov. 2-5. PPG will have displays both inside — at booth #24813 — and outside — in the Silver Lot #9. A retro 1950s theme and décor will set the tone for PPG’s participation in the four-day event. Celebrity painters, an expansive variety of custom vehicles, custom-painted guitars, industry classes, the new Vibrance Collection waterborne midcoat and more will be featured, the company says.

Celebrity painters Gene Winfield, Charley Hutton and Dave and Jody Perewitz will be in attendance at the PPG indoor and outdoor exhibits. Winfield, regarded as a living legend, is one of the world’s premier custom car painters and builders. Hutton and Dave Perewitz are recognized for their spectacular custom paint schemes. Jody Perewitz, Dave’s daughter, is blazing her own distinctive custom paint path. All four will be on hand to sign autographs and discuss their techniques for painting with PPG Vibrance Collection custom finishes and Envirobase High Performance waterborne coatings.

The PPG indoor booth will display two PPG-painted 1959 Cadillac Coupe DeVille show cars — “WildCad,” a purple model customized by Gene Winfield and a custom restoration, this one yellow, by Todd Lewis of Xtreme Restorations, Slatersville, R.I.
