Jerry, don't know who Ruby is. That Cruiser is a 3D model I found on the web, taken into one of my programs where the color and chrome were added, the pose tweaked and the model cleaned up. Image rendered, sent to FedEx printing for application to some t-shirts for our club. Only three were ever done. Unless I wanted to make thousands, the cost was just too high!
That "Ruby Begonia" phrase was Used by certain comedians during the Burlesque era. It quickly turned into a very popular catchphrase. It simply translates to "do you remember this person or thing". In this case, your club t-shirt.
Do you all still meet at any of the local burger joints?
Jerry, best I could find was 'Ruby Begonia' was started on the old 50's Amos n Andy show and was then used by Flip Wilson in the 70's on Laugh-In. A couple of us still gather at Eddie's and then there is the Dream Cruise. I do one day with the PT and one day with the Magnum.
I actually googles and saw that one for sale. XXL is too big for me, but I'd love to get that in another size. I wish someone still had those, or the iron-on at least and I could make my own. Oh will. I'll keep looking on eBay.
