On the Road
Meet Bobby Alloway
Larry Jewett - March 08, 2014 12:56 PM
Renowned custom car painter and builder Bobby Alloway has begun a series of appearances at some of the nation’s foremost custom car shows to display his work and promote PPG Automotive Refinish products. Alloway is transporting several of his vehicles across the country in a special tractor-trailer rig painted with PPG products and bearing Alloway and PPG signage.
“Doing this was my idea. I wanted to display my cars and to recognize PPG as the company that helps me do such great work,” said Alloway. “PPG products allow me to give my cars the look I want. The paint is terrific, the clears are fabulous, and the support and service they have provided are incredible.”
Alloway has been producing timeless street rods since 1978. He opened his own shop, Alloway’s Hot Rod Shop, in Louisville, Tennessee, in 1991 and has been turning out award-winning vehicles ever since. He has been inducted into the National Rod & Custom Car Hall of Fame and named Detroit Autorama Builder of the Year. His long list of awards includes Classic Instruments Street Rod of the Year, America’s Most Beautiful Roadster, Goodguys’ Street Rod and Street Machine of the Year and the highly-prized Ridler trophy.
