About Ronny Shaver, Proprietor
Ronny began working on Rolls-Royce and Bentleys in 1979 under the tutelage of his father, JR Shaver - a factory-trained Rolls-Royce and Bentley mechanic. Prior to that, Ronny was working as a Schwinn-trained bicycle and moped mechanic and joined with his father when he opened JR's Classics Ltd. Years of twisting wrenches during the day and restoring cars at nights and on weekends with JR and crew, Ronny continued his automotive education to achieve status as a Jaguar Gold Level Technician and ASE (Automotive Service Excellence) Master Technician. Then, in 2005 when JR wanted to retire, Ronny took over the helm of the family business and changed the name to Ronny's Garage.
Today, Ronny carries on the tradition of quality, old-world style craftsmanship and working closely with private collectors, some with significant luxury marque collections, and owners of fine and distinctive classic collectibles in caring for their respective piece of automotive history.
Ronny is a classic car owner too with a 1953 Bentley R-Type Standard Saloon. Ronny is also a proud member of the Rolls-Royce Owners Club of Southern California (RROC) where he serves as both a Director and Technical Chairman. Ronny has received the RROC's Sam Levin Award for outstanding contributions to the club, and in March 2011, he received the prestigious Marji Simon Award for outstanding service by a Director. Ronny often hosts free educational seminars at Ronny's Garage for club members, writes monthly service articles for their newsletter and enjoys participating in industry and club events.
When asked, how do you want to be remembered? Ronny answers simply, ldquo;I want to be remembered as an honest and helpful steward of this collectible car industry.rdquo;
"One of my greatest joys is achieved when I can take a dilapidated old car and resurrect it back to its former glory"
