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. His first appearance was at the Grand National Roadster Show in Pomona, Calif., Jan. 24-26.

“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, Tenn., in 1991 and has been turning out award-winning vehicles ever since. Known as “the master of black,” Alloway uses PPG products exclusively and relies heavily on the Deltron brand line.

Alloway was 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.

“When you talk about talented, successful and respected street rod builders, Bobby Alloway’s name is right at the top,” said Randy Cremeans, marketing director for PPG’s collision segment. “We’re very happy to know he thinks so highly of our products. It makes for a solid relationship.”

Alloway has appeared with PPG at the SEMA Show in Las Vegas and at various custom car shows around the country. A schedule of his upcoming appearances is as follows:

 March 8-9  Nashville, Tenn.  Hunters Custom Auto Show
 May 16-18  Nashville, Tenn.  Goodguys Nashville Nationals
 July 11-13  Columbus, Ohio  Goodguys PPG Nationals
 July 31-Aug. 3  Louisville, Ky.  NSRA Nationals
 Sept. 5-6  Pigeon Forge, Tenn.
