July 24, 2015—Bobby Alloway’s 1937 Chevy Coupe featuring a deep black PPG Finish was named the 2015 Classic Instruments Street Rod of the Year at the 18th annual PPG Goodguys Nationals.

The car, owned by Chuck Rowe of Millington, Tenn., was a crowd favorite at the event held July 10-12 at the Ohio Expo Center in Columbus, Ohio.

The Chevy was built by Alloway at his Hot Rod Shop where he uses PPG products exclusively. The car featured  DELTRON DBU 9700 Basecoat and DCU 2002 CONCEPT Clearcoat finish. This is Alloway’s third time winning the award. He won in 2001 with a ’33 Ford and again in 2013 with a ’32 Ford.

“The whole thing is nerve-wracking,” said Alloway. “It’s an honor to win, but you’re competing with the top builders in the world, so you can’t relax or get overconfident. You do the best you can, make the car look great and hope the judges recognize your work. I’m thankful they did.”
