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

1937 Chevrolet Truck from Queensland

From the website of the Veteran & Vintage Chevrolet Association of Australia (Qld)

Anne has sent us photos of her 93 year old Dad's pride and joy. 15 years ago he rescued the vehicle which reminded him of a similar Chev that he drove in his youth and restored it to the standard you will see in the following photos. He replaced the tray back with one he constructed from 18 gauge galvanised iron with a zincalum interior. The rear mudguards he constructed from copper sheeting with stainless-steel beading. The truck has been painted Coolangatta Cream. Sadly, Ron who lives in Forster NSW realises it is time to hand over custodianship of the truck and would like to see it go to a new loving home.
