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

The Old Photos Keep on going

These early unknown bodies look more like a stage coach than a car.

Hunting for Gas, the caption says.

The next 2 are very early Packard production

The desription says an early GMC truck. If you put riens and horses in the same picture, the drives position would be identical

Before the times of regulations about over loading, would you think?

Guess where. Alaska.

Aston Martin, ties and suits every where

I wonder which has more horse power

A night at the local dance. Third from the left, a 28 Chev.

A very advanced fan for a veteran / vintage car

The caption said travelling hobos

Probably a staged photo. As the last Packard is made before the plant moves to another location, workers pull up the line after the last car.

Radar, 1954 version

Early transporting of ready mix concrete

Flood coming, simple. Just drive the jalopy up the front steps.

Women with guns. A bit of a worry

Who would be the most comfortable. I'm not sure.
