Rudy Rodriguez works completely alone. In the last few decades, he worked as a Volkswagen and Porsche mechanic during the day and built hotrods at night. Several years ago, the late nights morphed into a full time operation at home. Recently, a lack of space and growing workload have driven him to open a shop. He was an underground hero to anyone growing up in Orange County California in the late 1970’s and early 80’s. Through the 1990’s his work included bikes, customs, and hotrods. Now, he is openly praised by industry heavies like Roy Brizio. Through it all, however, Rudy remains the same humble mechanic he was 25 years ago.
