This Month's Feature VW

In memory of a Good Friend Randy Perez

I first laid my eyes on "Ruby" in 2016 which was owned by Randy Perez, a coworker, a friend and a mentor. He had passion restoring and fabricating vintage cars in his garage in Fremont, CA. He had collections of vintage vehicles including this beauty, a 1952 Zwitter Bug Firefighter Red. He named her "Ruby".

Randy bought Ruby from Franklin's VW Werks in Washington and made it to Fremont, Ca in 2016 and the rest is history. It took a year of restoration and fabrication which included his trademark Lowrider suspension (adjustable independent suspension) and his personal touch of Harley Davidson exhaust fishtail tips which I have to say is "One of a Kind" and it sounds amazing. Every single detail in the vehicle was part of who he was a "Perfectionist".

I met Randy while I was working as a Paramedic and he was a Fire Engineer at one of the busiest Firehouse in Silicon Valley. I was fortunate to able to work side by side with him when I became a Firefighter. He was highly respected in our department because of his excellent work ethics and passion for the job. He's diligent and organized, kept his Fire Engine immaculate condition like his cars.

Randy passed away unexpectedly last year, his legacy and love of cars will live on. His wife Maddy wanted to Ruby to go a good home. I was honored to be Ruby's new owner.

What so special about Ruby? To have one of Randy's masterpiece and continue were he left off, more modifications and upgrades. And the time I will be spending with my kids and wife working on "Ruby" and making it perfect family project for years to come. Randy's Bomb Shop will live on and never be forgotten.
