Michael Rucker has been repairing cars since he was old enough to trade in his rattle for a wrench. He grew up around vehicles and went to trade school soon after graduating from high school. After working for numerous dealerships, Rucker decided to go it alone by purchasing A Auto Haus-Barron Automotive, a family-run establishment that had been around since 1985. Today, he calls upon more than two decades of experience in the auto industry and adds a personal touch to services that range from maintenance and smog checks to major engine repair. Whether the vehicle is American, Japanese, German, or a rocket-powered bumper car, Rucker is likely to know his way around it.
