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

2011 - June - Vintage Car Meets Vintage Train

The DVHCC  organized a club car display at Mount Waverly station today as part of the commemoration of 81 years since the first rail service to Glen Waverly.

After a brisk (40- 45mph) and windy run down the Monash Freeway from Narre Warren we arrived at the station and very quickly jumped on board for a steam train ride.

Big Toys for Big Boys (and a few girls also)

The passing crowd on their way to and from the Steam Train rides enjoyed the good turn out of cars and viewed them with great interest.

A good day was had by all.

I think I will stick with vintage cars. Those steam engines look so big to work on, and what would the neighbours say?
