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

Pakenham Picnic 2013

The weather forecast we woke up to this morning was to expect rain, however I am pleased to say the conditions remained perfect all day for the annual Pakenham Picnic in the Park car show, for vehicles 25 years and older.

Everything from a veteran Fiat through to a Falcon GT HO is indicative of the great turn out of  cars and people that made it an enjoyable event for all.

The theme this year was a 100 years of Morris cars display, with a great cross selection of cars, going back to a couple of Bullnose models.

The Dandenong Valley Historic Car Club did an excellent job organizing the day, and congratulations to all involved.

Being known for taking the odd picture or 2, this year was no different, and lets just say I am off to buy a bigger memory card for my camera this week.

To make it easier to navigate through the pictures I have broken them down into groups, which I trust will make it easier to see the cars of interest to you.
