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

A few more frozen moments in time

Found these today, thought you may find them interesting.

Take the car to the people if the people don't come to the car. This was from a Chev sales campaign back in 1922. Hope no one asked for a test drive. $275 and its yours!

Please note the name of the business is Hope & Son, who specialize in wreck rebuilding and frame straightening. Very fitting as I think they would have had their work cut out on this little number.

A 1952 Chev going through a water test. What a shame they never thought about a floor rusting test?

1959 Chev assembly line, installing 6 cylinder engines. How would modern OH&S feel about the guy in the pit.

Me, well I have only seen 1 woody in the flesh during my 59 years on the planet. How many have you seen?
