PPG today announced the 2018 appearance schedule of its popular show truck. The bold red, white and blue PPG tractor-trailer rig — a rolling exhibit of premium PPG products — will kick off its coast-to-coast excursion on March 9 at the 8th annual Goodguys Spring Lone Star Nationals at the Texas Motor Speedway in Fort Worth. The truck will make a total of 18 appearances, concluding its tour season Nov. 16 at WestWorld of Scottsdale in Arizona. Tour stops include the top national and regional car, truck and hot rod events sponsored by the Goodguys Rod & Custom Association and other major auto groups.

The colorful show truck serves as a mobile PPG exhibit designed to give custom car builders and painters — professionals and hobbyists alike — a chance to learn about PPG’s innovative products, hottest colors and dazzling special effects to create show-stopping finishes. At each location, PPG representatives will be on hand to present the truck’s large pop-up display, welcome the public and answer any questions visitors have about any of PPG’s brands including Deltron®, the Vibrance Collection®, Global Refinish System®, Envirobase® High Performance and Aquabase® Plus.

“We’re very proud of our show truck,” said Cristina Murray, PPG director, customer engagement and communications. “With our truck at the shows and visiting our distributor locations, we’re trying to make sure everyone involved in automotive refinish and commercial markets can learn more about our PPG products. The truck displays a number of cool items painted with PPG — from motorcycle half tanks and helmets to baseball bats and more. Just as PPG has something for everyone, our booth also has something for everyone, even a coloring contest for the kids and a collectible coloring book illustrated by artist Tony Squindo.”

The truck’s complete tour schedule follows. Truck and car fans are invited to visit the show truck at any of the scheduled stops.
