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

DVHCC Club Run and Birthday Party club run Sunday 8th July.

At 10.45 this morning I was picked up by Les and Jan Francis and had the pleasure of being a passenger in the first public appearance of their 1938 Lasalle.

Great car Mr Francis

We then motored in great comfort to meet up with other club members at  the Sandown Park Greyhound Track Taberet, where a fine lunch was enjoyed by all.

After lunch we moved on to the Dandenong Show Grounds for an afternoon tea to celebrate the 90th birthday of Reg and Margaret Clarence, both senior members of the DVHCC.

The birthday couple arrived in style in a stretched limo, and were greeted by family, friends and a number of people from the various clubs they have been associated with over the years.

I had to take a few shots of this 1920 Austin Twenty, which I have not seen before. I love the twin spare wheels at the rear.

Thanks to all who were involved in organizing the run, and also to the Clarence family for allowing us to share their special day.
