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

Car Club Run to the Robin Hood Inn

Situated in Drouin West (Gippsland Victoria) the Robin Hood Inn was one of the stopovers for the Cobb & Co Coach in the late 1800’s and early 1900’s.

Built by Henry Dickens in 1870 the Robin Hood remains much the same as it was then.

This was the perfect venue, and lunch stop, for the DVHCC
monthly run, which in the case of the Red Chev was a 101 mile round trip

The starting point for those who wanted to travel as a group was Bunnings in Narre Warren

We headed off for the mid morning stop at the Longwarry Market

This is where the writer gets to show his slight bias towards Chev 4's by asking the question

"How do you like your 28's, original or restored"

DVHCC members cover both preferences.

After an hour or so at the market we meet up for the short trip to the Robin Hood.

Now did a few of us get lost, or did we just want to drive around and view the beautiful scenery?

Don't ask me, I was just following the car in front, he was doing the same, and the car behind was following me.

Anyway we soon pulled up at the Robin Hood Inn for a great lunch and a good chat.

Thanks to all involved in organizing another great day out.
