The purpose of this Blog

This blog is to detail my 46 years (1973 - 2019) 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

Building up a Spare Engine (1927) for the Red Chev - On Hold Till Further Notice

With the engine needing a rebore, pistons and rings, and that not on the agenda for a while, I stripped off the 28 head, manifolds and carby to put back into storage and the engine (or part there of) was packed into the corner of the garage until the project fires up again.

I will restart the project once I sell off a few of the 27 parts not required. So if any 27 Chevs out there need the following bits and pieces, here they are waiting for a new home.
