Alloway’s Hot Rod Shop

A quick look to the South and we see what’s happening at Alloway’s Hot Rod Shop in Knoxville, Tennessee. Alloway always has plenty going on, whether it be Corvettes, El Caminos, Tri-Fives, or early hot rods. Remember, his shop builds the Shades of the Past–hosted Hot Rod Roundup giveaway roadster every year.

After a quick look around we found a 1966 Chevelle getting ready for paint, a 1961 Chevy Impala with LS power for Diane Rowe receiving some mechanical attention, a 1970 El Camino for Jerry Rice in the body shop, and a 1959 Chevy El Camino belonging to Brian Kilgore, also in the body shop.

Two of our favorites are the 1934 Ford five-window coupe belonging to Larry Olson with the “MacDaddy” himself, Alloway, performing sheetmetal repair to the driver side door. Now, if you are a fan of Tri-Fives and big-block massive hyperpower and torque then check out George Lange’s bad boy 1956 post car with Josh Bailey working on the frontend (core support area).and the trademark Alloway wheels. We can also guess the PPG Alloway black will be sprayed in due time.
