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

Barn Find in Maryland USA


Taken from

Some car hunters have all the luck, take this guy, who found several barns in Maryland. The barns housed more than a handful of classic cars. The seller has nearly 20 vehicles currently listed from just this one location. They found a wide variety of vehicles, ranging from Convertibles to a Model A Tractor.


The previous owner of all these vehicles was obviously a hoarder who stashed them all over their estate. There appears to be at least 3 barns full of cars, plus a number parked outside. The owner was also hoarding automotive memorable, which is also for sale. Most of the cars are in rough shape, but there are a few worth saving.

Take this 1957 Ford Fairlane Thunderbird Special for example. It has a 300 horsepower V8 and looks to be in nice shape.


This guy must have had a fondness for Convertibles, especially the 1966 Ford Galaxie 500 Convertible, which they had three of. They also have a variety of Pontiacs, including a 1951 Pontiac Eight and a 1955 Pontiac Star Chief Convertible


There are also several Buicks and an Oldsmobile. This 1955 Buick Roadmaster has some rust in the floors, but looks solid overall. A 1956 Buick Century two door can be seen in the background, but is in rough shape.


The cars that were stored in this fully enclosed barn appear to be in much better condition than the ones outside. They are all going to require extensive restorations, but we’re sure a few are worth saving. Take a look at all the cars listed and let us know which ones you would like to rescue.
