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

1932 Chev Moonlight Speedster

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

There is much debate about the actual number of 1932 Moonlight Speedster survivors. Here is a definate that did not survive! This beauty was photographed on the side of the road in Sydney in 1962 by early V.V.C.A.A. Member, Bill Spraggon. The car CJT-691 was for sale at the time but apparently did not sell and was in the scrap yard two weeks later!

  1. My grandfather used to talk about this 1932 Moonlight. He used to say that he craved to own one, but unfortunately they didn't have enough money to buy one. However, years have passed and they bought a 1932 Chevy Coach. I think both cars are beautiful in their own rights.
