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

1926 or 1927 Chev Truck

This poor soul is in need of a giant dose of TLC.

Can it be reclaimed?

Is it too far gone?

Well the running gear is complete, the engine is complete with most hang ons, and sealed from the weather.

Very unusual so see an old banger like this still so mechanically complete, even down to carby and plug wires.

Who knows, a sand blast, build a cab, build a tray, and you have a Chev truck.
