Sherwin-Williams, Barrett-Jackson Sponsoring Contest for Custom Cars Featuring New Planet Color Line

The new Planet Color Barrett-Jackson Collector Color Series paint line from Sherwin-Williams Automotive Finishes Corp. (SWAFC) aims to provide muscle car enthusiasts with 25 classic vehicle finishes and colors.

“Barrett-Jackson has provided us with valuable information on re-styled vehicle colors from the iconic muscle car era, as well as the hottest colors in demand by today’s top custom-car restoration builders,” says David Kidd, Sherwin-Williams Automotive OEM Business Development Manager/Planet Color. “The result? New custom finishes that perfectly match the rich vibrant colors of the classics, teamed up with unparalleled durability, clarity and a brilliant appearance.”

To celebrate the new color offerings, SWAFC and Barrett-Jackson are encouraging restorers to paint their vehicles using the new palette and enter them in the new Color Your Classic competition. Any vehicle – cars, trucks, motorcycles, watercraft, etc. – finished with colors from the new Planet Color Barrett-Jackson Collector Color Series palette are eligible to enter.

Winners receive two VIP tickets to the Barrett-Jackson Scottsdale Auction to be held in January 2011. The prize package also includes airfare and deluxe hotel accommodations (three days, two nights) and rental car in Arizona.

“We’re excited to team up with Sherwin-Williams Automotive Finishes Corp.,” said Steve Davis, Barrett-Jackson president. “We believe this relationship will provide automotive enthusiasts, collectors and true artists with some of the finest products to either re-create the classic car colors they remember or create new designs limited only by their imagination. We hope this contest will inspire amazing creativity and innovation with this new palette.”

The online competition, which was announced Nov. 4 at the SEMA show in Las Vegas, will run through April 1, 2010.

Entries can be submitted online and complete contest rules, including entry requirements and judging information will be posted online. The Web site will allow visitors to view and vote online for the vehicle of their choice.
