A PPG-painted custom 1932 Kugel Muroc captured the 2020 America’s Most Beautiful Roadster (AMBR) award at the recent Grand National Roadster Show (GNRS) held at the Pomona Fairplex in Pomona, CA.

The car’s owner, Monty Belsham of Houston, British Columbia, turned to Squeeg’s Kustoms in Chandler, AZ, for the great look. 
 
Painters Doug Jerger and Moose Graczyk at Squeeg’s used an array of PPG paints to give the roadster its striking black finish with fire-hot flames. 
 
Paint included DELTRON® DBC Basecoat Black and DCU2021 CONCEPT® Urethane Clearcoat, along with a rainbow of tangerine, apple red and magenta RADIANCE® dyes and pearls to ignite the fiery flames. The result was a rich, gleaming finish with dynamic highlights---and the coveted AMBR award.
 
The all-metal, limited-production Kugel Muroc was sold in the early 2000s as a package comprising bare body plus chassis. It was up to the buyer to finish the rest of the car.
 
This was Squeeg’s second AMBR win. His first came in 2011 for a 1934 Ford roadster.
 
Other show winners also featured dazzling PPG finishes.
 
The Refinery, a custom paint shop in Manteno, IL, owned by Adam Krause, took the historic Al Slonaker Memorial Award for an eye-catching 1936 Willys pickup owned by Ron and Vicky Ernsberger of Holiday City, OH.
 
After the preparation and bodywork was done by Krause and his brother Tyler, Adam sprayed PPG’s ENVIROBASE® High Performance basecoat with ECS65 and ECS67 A-Chromatic Sealers and GLOBAL REFINISH SYSTEM® 8152 clearcoat on the body and Global Refinish System D8115 Matte Clearcoat on the inside of the truck bed and bottom side of all the panels to give the truck a classic Ferrari Rosso Mugello (red) finish.
