New exhibit items include new color card displays for the many PPG custom color cards. These displays will include the recently introduced Hot Wheels Spectraflame colors for use in automotive refinishing. This new co-branded Hot Wheels/PPG Industries paint line was created by PPG and Mattel, Inc. color stylists to emulate the eye-catching and vibrant Spectraflame‚ colors featured in Hot Wheels toy cars.
Other new items include a chip book counter rack designed to hold a history of PPG color information, and a telescoping flagpole to fly the U.S., PPG, and event flags. A new coloring book will be available, with a fresh cover designed by PPG custom paint instructor Paul Stoll, and, of course, the Kid’s Coloring Contest will be held at every event, where children in six age groups compete for cash prizes designing a color scheme for a street rod.
