Pinstriping Charity Auction at the 500 World of Wheels Car Show: February 9-11, 2018
Each February, over 20 pinstripers come together from all over Indiana and surrounding states to create custom artwork that is auctioned off at the 500 World of Wheels Car Show. They pinstripe anything from panels to guitars to barrels to bowling pins. If it has a smooth surface, they can paint it! You can bring an item to be striped or you can bid on a one of a kind piece during one of the five live auctions.
