i don't know the guy but from the little interaction i've had with him he seems like the type that has no interest in the internet.

That would be too bad because to be a continually successful business in today's world you need the internet. I know some might argue that point but that would depend on your definition of successful or continually for that matter.

I believe Rudy has been successful without paying for websites, internet. Look at the money he is saving by keeping his overhead low. We (on this site) do a great job by word of mouth keeping niche businesses like Ruby's afloat. One thing that Ruby does that alot businesses have found to be a lost art......one on one customer service, that's what makes him great to deal with. He will continue to have my business

Bought part from rudy and he is a very cool guy. Quick, efficient one on one service with follow up.

i would definitely do business with him again.

one more thing, i think his exclusive lower mount alternator bracket is the best one for a '62-'67 chevy II.

Jim,
It's on your way home from the donut shop. Right near Angel Stadium. I have been doing business with Rudy for almost 20 years. It would've taken me alot longer putting my Novas together without his help.
