      Ralph Ludden

      Hello, my name is Ralph Ludden and I have been at Schmelz since April 2009. I love meeting new people and my favorite thing to hear is that my customer loves their new car. Cars are too expensive to drive something you do not love. I live three minutes from the dealership and I have the world's greatest commute. I married my wife Sue in October 1996 and we now have two girls who both want Beetles when they turn 16. When I am not working I enjoying spending time with my family and I am a golf nut.
