As the nation’s biggest horsepower festival rumbles back to life with the 34th Street Machine Summernats in January 2022, PPG is once again set to be front and centre!
Colour totally rocks at Summernats, and that makes it a natural environment for PPG. With entrants having had two whole years to prepare their cars, next year’s event on 6 to 9 January is promising more colour, noise and excitement than ever before. Exhibition Park in Canberra will heave to a huge program of events, but just be sure to set aside time to visit the PPG crew at the traditional onsite location at “PPG Corner”. Features will include vehicle displays and fascinating exhibits according to Sam Minter, custom vehicle enthusiast and PPG NSW CT Manager.
“We are offering plenty of reasons to drop into the PPG marquee, but perhaps the most important is the opportunity to chat one-on-one with one of our expert PPG team. Not only can you get the benefit of their knowledge and advice to help tackle your latest build or dream project, but they can also guide you through the colour selection process to get the exact finish you are looking for – and colour is something that there is no shortage of at PPG!” said Minter. “For example, one of the fan favourites is our “Retro Colour Wall” display, which brings to life some of the iconic muscle car colours from Chrysler, Ford, Holden, and so on. This includes ‘Silver Mink’, as seen on the Holden HK GTS and ‘Yellow Glow’ (complete with GT stripes) from the 1971 Falcon.”
When it comes to incredible custom colour options, you can’t go past the PPG Vibrance Collection range. Whether you are looking to give your project a vibrant but subtle lift or you are after something totally wild, you will find the solution. “Today’s Vibrance Collection is actually a complete package that includes specialised primers and a custom-focused clearcoat to take your project from start to finish. To give visitors a better insight into the step-by-step processes that go into creating an epic custom paint job, we will have a series of panels that follow the actual process from preparing a bare metal surface, through priming and colour application, to the completed clearcoat,” said Minter.
Summernats co-owner, Andy Lopez, reckons the return of the legendary event will reunite likeminded friends and fans. “Summernats is as much about seeing friends in the scene as it is about the cars, and many people are really looking forward to this annual opportunity to catch up with mates in what has been a strange and difficult time.”
