The purpose of this Blog

This blog is to detail my 43 years (1973 - 2016) with a 1928 Chevrolet tourer, affectionately called "The Red Chev".

The acquisition, restoration, improvements and my experiences over the years are covered in as much detail as I can remember.

Some of the later postings include car club outings and other vintage car items that I hope will be of interest to people.

If you have the time, scroll back to where it all began in 1973 and follow the journey so far.

Thanks for dropping by.

Regards Ray Dean

47 More Photos for Your Viewing

A bit of a worry that this is the main street into town, some where USA. Will he make it?

Don't think so, look at the amount of mud around that back wheel.

If he ever gets out of that mud, here is a novel car wash, just for the underside of your jalopy

I may not be a Ford fan, but you have to admire Henry's innovations, way back then.












Must be a very early photo, note the combination of blacksmith and auto repair, and a dead give away is the amount of horse manure on the road.





How many men does it take to assemble a steam locomotive. Don't know, but make sure someone does the brakes.

Who forgot to adjust the brakes!!


Cant wait till they invent heaters


Now if someone comes the other way I think I may be in trouble.



Yeh, my car is the one with the soft top, just over there.

Could you imagine the trouble you would be in if you tried this now?




The next 2 photos are of the same car, during the first world war.



Love the outfit


Some nice vintage pedal cars

And a pedal car test track



This was a parking demonstration


The photo is marked 1928. If the boy is still with us he would be at least 90.








This would be the biggest vintage car I have seen so far

Look at the size of the thing.

Would not have a clue.
