ppG GALLery PRo GolFER PlEAsuRE When professional golfer Kenny Perry, a 14-time winner on the PGA tour, is on his game, he's concentrating on his swing, drives and putts. But when he puts his clubs away, he focuses on his passion for classic Chevys and muscle cars—like his restored and customized 1955 Chevy 2-door. the Chevy sports an 800-horsepower Reher-Morrison racing engine, an Art Morrison performance-quality frame, rack-and-pinion steering, and a lot more. Perry is quick to add, "the paint job is the prettiest part of the car. it's completely PPG finished—primer, basecoat and clear. PPG is the only paint we use. it's awesome." A true car buff, Perry has a stable of restored Camaros, a 1,000-horsepower '98 Pontiac Grand Am and a 2009 Corvette, among others. the '55 Chevy has been tested in a few drag races. As muscled up as the car is, it's also Perry's everyday, around-town ride. And if you ask Perry, he'll probably tell you it's more fun to drive than a golf ball.
