The truck, a 75-foot 2007 Coronado Freightliner tractor-trailer rig, is decked out in a vibrant paint scheme that incorporates the colors, special effects and graphics PPG products make possible.

The truck will begin its cross-country tour in March with veteran PPG driver Chad Hook at the wheel. He will guide the truck to 18 major events including car, truck and hot rod shows sponsored by the National Street Rod Association (NSRA), the Goodguys Rod & Custom Association and other automotive enthusiast groups.

Hook has worked with PPG for 30 years in several capacities and has driven the show truck since 1999, covering 30,000-35,000 miles annually. Prior to this assignment, Hook was a member of the PPG Pace Car Team, transporting vehicles from race to race. He has driven trucks for more than 42 years and had accumulated more than 2 million miles before he stopped counting about 10 years ago.

“I enjoy driving and I enjoy cars, so this is a great job for me,” Hook said. “I get to meet a lot of people along the way, and it’s always good to see the PPG reps at each of the shows; we’re all like one big family.”

Despite the fickleness of weather and a sometimes tight schedule, Hook has never missed a show or arrived late. He will usually get to a city the day before an event just to be sure everything can be set up in time. PPG representatives will greet him and help prep the trailer for public display. On occasion Hook will pilot the truck to a PPG Platinum Distributor’s location for a special event.

Hook's first stop in 2014 will be March 7-9 in Scottsdale, Ariz., for the Goodguys Spring Nationals. From there he will take the truck to 12 other states before returning to Arizona for the season-ending Southwest Nationals in November.

Truck and car fans are invited to visit the show truck wherever it appears to learn more about PPG automotive refinish products and the painting techniques used to create the truck's remarkable finishes. Custom car painters, builders and buffs may find the truck to be an inspiration for developing their own artistic designs. The complete tour schedule follows:
