Goodguys Street Machine and Street Rod of the Year winners Crowned at the 19th PPG Nationals

The 19th PPG Nationals just wrapped up in Columbus, OH! The signature Goodguys event of the year awarded two of the season’s top cars. Capturing Goodguys 2016 Classic Instruments Street Rod of the Year was Billy & Debby Thomas’ Ridler-winning ’39 Oldsmobile convertible. Built at Customs & Hot Rods of Andice, the landmark rod named “Olds Cool” was restyled, molded then coach built by the CHRA under the watchful eye of shop manager Michael Kaiser, CHRA stylist Levi Green and an assist from former GM Design specialist Christian Dotson. The build was six years in the making. It rides on a custom modified Morrison chassis and gobbles up ground courtesy of a 455c.i. Olds V8 that was one of the last engines ever built by the late Joe Mondello. The exquisite leather interior was house-stitched at CHRA and the Kona Brown PPG paint was laid down by Charley Hutton.
Driving off with Goodguys 2016 PPG Street Machine of the Year was Tim and CiCi Spencer in their ’69 Ford Mustang by Goolsby Customs. The Glasurit “Goolsby Grey” Mustang created a stir at the SEMA Show last November when it captured the prestigious Mother’s Shine award. The low-slung stance of the Mustang is courtesy of Detroit Speed Aluma-Frame front and QUADRA Link rear suspension sprung with JRi shocks. Nutek wheels and Michelin rubber add modern performance while the classic body lines were subtly refined with shaved drip rails, extended rear quarters, one-off side vents and 3D printed taillights. M & M Hot Rod Interiors stitched the Relicate leather upholstery.
Both of these stunning cars will have in depth features in the November issue of the Goodguys Goodtimes Gazette.
