LAS VEGAS, NV, November 5, 2008 - BASF today announced that it launched its new Foose Signature Line of automotive refinish colors during a press conference held at the SEMA (Specialty Equipment Market Association) show in Las Vegas, Nevada. The 12 Foose-inspired automotive refinish paint colors combine BASF's superior coating technology with colors formulated personally by the legendary car designer.

"For years, BASF paints have helped take my projects to the Ridler Awards, to this show (SEMA), to the cover of magazines, and to television with Overhaulin'," said Foose. "And now, thanks to my partnership with BASF, I'm thrilled to introduce to you my very own signature automotive refinish colors."
