PPG Automotive Refinish presented its popular “Best Use of Color” awards to three spectacular customized cars at the NSRA’s 46th annual Street Rod Nationals Plus. The event was held August 6-9 in Louisville at the Kentucky Exposition Center.

The three cars, each sporting a uniquely distinctive paint job, were a 1934 Chevy built by Mark Giambalvo, owner of Creative Rod & Kustom in Womelsdorf, Pa., a 1931 Ford Model A from Dave Tucci at Tucci Hot Rods, Marcy, N.Y., and a 1965 Mustang convertible out of Dustin Foust’s Classic Restorations of Southern Indiana LLC in Floyds Knobs, Ind.

The ’34 Chevy is owned by Jack Maloney of Highland, Md. Giambalvo called on his paint technician Jason Dunkelberger to give the car its rich and deep two-tone burgundy and black finish. Dunkelberger applied a variety of PPG DELTRON® products including DPS3055 V-PRIME™ Acrylic Urethane Surfacer, DBC9700 2000 Black Basecoat, DBC 2000 Basecoat, Garnet Red (code 926174) and CONCEPT® 2021 Urethane Clear to produce the standout look.

Dave Tucci’s winning entry started out as a stock 1931 Ford Model A two-door sedan. Tucci rebuilt it as a street rod for owner Dean Lombardo of Bronxville, N.Y. Then John Ramsey of John’s Auto Restoration in Rome, N.Y., turned to Deltron and used DBC 2000 Basecoat, Tigereye (code 911865) and DC4000 Velocity Premium Clearcoat flattened with ONECHOICE® SU4985 Universal Matting Agent to produce the dramatic flat brownish finish.

Todd and Stephanie Foust, of Baton Rouge, La., entrusted their Mustang, “Black Diamond,” to cousin Dustin Foust for customizing. Once Dustin remade the Mustang, his team went to work on the finish. They chose the Deltron line’s DPX171 Non-Chrome Self Etching Primer, K38 High Build Primer Surfacer, DCC9300 CONCEPT® Acrylic Urethane single stage gloss black with no clear. The accent color (center of hood, tail light panel, etc.) is DBC Tuxedo Black (code 918644) with DCU 2060 FLEXED "N" FLAT™ Clear.

An estimated 70,000 enthusiasts attended the four-day event. The PPG award-winning cars were part of a field of more than 11,000 entries comprising street rods, classics, custom cars and trucks manufactured no later than 1985. While the judges faced a daunting task in evaluating so many cars, the quality of the winners’ paint jobs noticeably stood out.

The NSRA’s Street Rod Nationals Plus is the world's largest automotive participant event and is complemented with ten NSRA divisional nationals. NSRA gatherings are a combination of games, activities, exhibits and shopping opportunities with everything geared to family entertainment. PPG has a long-term association with the NSRA.


PPG Automotive Refinish is celebrating the 20th anniversary of the introduction of its OMNI® refinish system. Introduced in 1995, the OMNI system was quickly recognized in the industry as a reliable resource for value-minded collision centers. At that time, the OMNI brand offered a range of economical refinish products that repair shops could use to deliver high-quality results while enhancing cycle times and profitability. Two decades later, the OMNI system is better than ever and consistently providing the performance that cost-conscious collision centers rely on for their repair and refinish operations.

Since its debut, the OMNI brand has expanded and improved significantly. The OMNI Plus lineup was launched in 2005 as an extension of the OMNI basecoat system and has grown to include high-strength toners, special effect pigments and diamond toners—all designed to elevate the color-matching accuracy, hiding power and performance of the entire OMNI line. In 2009, the OMNI LV compliant refinish system was added to address refinish requirements in regulated North American markets. Today, with its all-inclusive range of products from pretreatments to topcoats, the OMNI platform is capable of blending topcoat qualities with a wide choice of primers and clears to create a unique and efficient process.

“The PPG OMNI system has changed and improved considerably over the years,” said Jennifer Boros, PPG marketing director, collision segment. “In response to customers’ requests and as the result of our ongoing research and development, we’ve taken the steps to put the OMNI brand at the top of the value category. We take great pride in what the OMNI brand has become, and we’ll keep advancing it so it continues to be the smart choice for shops that want to produce quality finishes efficiently.”

Boros points out that new OMNI products are regularly introduced as they are developed to ensure system versatility. These include the recent addition of EUROPLUS clearcoats as well as production clearcoats to the OMNI LV lineup and the OMNI brand Color Deck assuring that the OMNI paint system continues to provide a high level of performance.

STRONGSVILLE, Ohio - September 10, 2015  PPG-painted 1962 Chevrolet Bel Air Bubbletop was named the2015 Barrett-Jackson Cup Ultimate Best of Show winner Aug. 8 at Circus Circus in Reno, Nevada. The award was presented during the final evening of the three-day Barrett-Jackson Reno Tahoe collector car auction. The car is owned by Randy and Lisa Wilcox and was built by Andy Leach at CAL Automotive Creations in Bennington, Neb. The Chevy’s gleaming silver finish was applied by Charley Hutton of Charley Hutton’s Color Studio in Nampa, Idaho, using PPG Automotive Refinish products exclusively.

Hutton, regarded as one of the most accomplished and talented painters in the custom car world, used several PPG brands to attract the judges’ eyes. ENVIROBASE® High Performance Basecoat, Magnesium Silver (code 904978) and DELTRON® DCU2021 Urethane Clear gave the car its exterior luster. The engine bay received Pepper Grey (code 931611) and finished with GLOBAL REFINISH SYSTEM D8115 Matte Clearcoat, and the interior was painted with custom-mixed Envirobase High Performance coatings to match the oxblood leather.

With his contribution to winning the Barrett-Jackson Cup, Hutton can add another prestigious award to an impressive collection of honors. He has won the Ridler Award three times—in 2005, 2007 and 2013—and has received several Street Rod of the Year, Custom Rod of the Year and America’s Most Beautiful Roadster awards along with many other top prizes. Hutton established his painting credentials early in his career with appearances on the Discovery Channel’s American Hot Rod, TLC’s Overhaulin’ and on Hot Rod TV.

The Barrett-Jackson Cup was established in 2013. The Ultimate Best of Show award brought with it a prize package worth almost $60,000. Cars entering the competition were reviewed over a three-day period by a trio of well-respected custom car world personalities including builder and PPG devotee Bobby Alloway, hot rodder Pete Chapouris, and Bob Millard, general manager of the International Show Car Association (ISCA). The three judged an extremely competitive field and announced the Bubbletop’s victory in a ceremony on the Barrett-Jackson auction block.
