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 - 8th August - 109 Mile Club Run - No Problems

As late as 6.30 am this morning the threat of bad weather almost persuaded me not take part in a planned club run from Narre Warren to Warragul, a round trip of 109 miles from my house in The Basin.

I decided to take a gamble and it turned out to be perfect weather all day. Not a drop of rain or the storms that were predicted.

My club, the Dandenong Valley Historic Car Club   did a run to Warragul to meet up with the West Gippsland Vehicle Restorers Club at their new Warragul club rooms.

Travelling up in convoy at about 45 MPH, and returning home on my own at about the same speed, the Chev did not miss a beat. Very good confidence building.

Well done to the DVHCC for organizing a great run, and thanks to the West Gippsland boys and girls for the hospitality, and allowing us to enjoy our BBQ lunch in the club rooms.

The West Gippsland club meets each and every Saturday morning. Its just as well their not close buy.
