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

Auction in Nebraska on 17th July last year.

The following is from

Maxwell Auction

Anyone up for a road trip? We might be after getting this tip from reader Pat T about an upcoming salvage yard auction in Nebraska. The auction contains about 200 classic cars, ranging in age from the 30s up to the 70s.

Maxwell Auction Henry J

Some of the more notable cars being offered include: 1952 Henry J. Corsaire Deluxe, 1952 Pontiac Woody Wagon, 1958 Chevrolet Yeoman 2 door wagon, and a 1972 Toyota LandCrusier. We are sure there are a few more good finds at this auction, since this salvage business has been accumulating cars for the last 50 years. Can you guys name any of the other notable cars in the pictures?


There appear to be quite a few cars that are in fair condition, but given that it’s a salvage yard don’t be surprised if many of the cars have been picked over. However, if you’re looking for a parts car or a new project this auction might be the place to get one.


The auction was held on July 17th in Maxwell, NE which is a few miles east of North Platte.


Below we have included a few of the photos that the acution company took of the emblems. Not particually useful if you are wanting to purchasing a car, but they are interesting to look at none the less. Enjoy.
