2009 PPG Vibrance Collection® show truck schedule announced

STRONGSVILLE, Ohio – February 4, 2009 – PPG has announced the 2009 appearance schedule for its Vibrance Collection® show truck. The truck, a 75-foot 2007 Freightliner Coronado tractor-trailer rig, custom-painted in crowd-pleasing PPG Vibrance Collection colors, will make 21 stops at truck, car and hot rod shows and events in its March to November tour. PPG driver Chad Hook will be at the wheel guiding the truck to its cross-country appearances.
