PPG Takes Home Top Awards at Goodguys Nationals
A PPG-painted car was named Street Rod of the Year and PPG’s DITZLER DSC5250 Satin Clear Kit won the inaugural Best New Product Award in the Paint & Car Care Products category.
The Street Rod of the Year went to a 1939 Oldsmobile, “Olds Cool,” painted by Charley Hutton and owned by Billy and Debbie Thomas of Corpus Christie, Texas. The competition is open to all cars through the 1949 model year. The winning vehicle was painted with a variety of PPG products including Vibrance Collection VP2050 High Build Primer, Envirobase High Performance waterborne basecoat and ECS Sealer, Global Refinish System D8152 Performance + Glamour Clearcoat. The car was also painted with a special custom mix of tints and toners to achieve the “Kona Brown” finish.
The Vibrance Collection DSC5250, the winner of the Best New Product award, features a quart of VC5250 Ditzler Satin Clear and a half pint of VH72750 Ditzler Satin Clear Hardener. The low-gloss customer clear gives a smooth and uniform satin finish with superior mar resistance.
PPG Dream Car Awards are also given out during the Goodguys Nationals. This year, two cars earned that distinction: a 1929 Ford Model A owned by Dale Spangenberg III of Willoughby, Ohio, and a 1971 Oldsmobile 442 convertible owned by Ed Pienta of Wilkes-Barre, Penn.
