The colors will be screaming in the PPG booth at this year’s SEMA Show Oct. 31–Nov. 3 at the Las Vegas Convention Center. The SEMA Show attracts automotive industry professionals from around the world, and all are welcome at PPG booth 24601, where an array of spectacular custom cars and other items presenting the hottest trends in paint finishes will offer show-stopping treats. Display cars include:

  • Steve Frisbee’s dazzling Ridler award-winning candy-apple red and black 1933 Ford Roadster “Renaissance Roadster”;
  • Bobby Alloway’s “Wicked Ride,” a stealthy 1955 Plymouth Savoy sporting his renowned signature classic black finish;
  • Hot Dog Finlan’s “Bully,” a wild 1930 Model A Ford sedan that’s making its flamboyant debut at SEMA

PPG booth visitors will get a chance to mingle with the custom car world’s brightest stars. The artists who are responsible for the ingenious paint schemes that win some of the biggest awards at car shows across the country will be on hand to sign autographs, offer tips and talk about their PPG product preferences:

  • Charley Hutton, Charley Hutton’s Color Studio
  • Bobby Alloway, Alloway’s Hot Rod Shop
  • Tom and Mitch Kelly, Kelly & Son Crazy Painters
  • Hot Dog Finlan, Hot Dog Kustoms

In addition, PPG’s Jeremy Seanor will put on a pinstriping demonstration and noted automotive artist Kenny Youngblood will display his popular illustrations and sign his one-of-a-kind renderings of PPG’s 2017 show cars.
 
The racing world will be there too, represented in the booth by Brad Keselowski, Team Penske Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series driver, and the John Force Racing Team. Keselowski currently drives Team Penske’s No. 2 Ford Fusion. The John Force Racing Team, National Hot Rod Association drag racing champions, will make a special guest appearance to kick off the show. Keselowski and John Force Team members will be ready to share their racing adventures.
 
PPG will also host a Facebook Live Fan Q+A with Charley Hutton, Bobby Alloway and Collision Hub’s Kristen Felder. Fans are invited to submit questions for Hutton or Alloway for a chance to win a PPG SEMA T-shirt and a poster autographed by one of these standout painters.
