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

DVHCC run to the RAAF Point Cook Air Museum (round trip of 82 miles)

Another great day out with the Dandenong Valley Historic Car Club.

Meeting up at the outward bound service center at the foot of the West Gate Bridge, I spent about 30 minutes getting dirty and greasy, but solving a problem which I will cover in the next posting.

We set off for Point Cook for a tour of the RAAF Air Museum , which covers the history of military flying in Australia.

On arrival at the museum we were briefed by one of the volunteers and then checked out the several hangers of historic combat aircraft and displays. I was surprised to see how big the Mirage and F111 jets were in real life.


We then made our way to the historic Point Cook Homestead for lunch and a tour of the grounds



Don't know if the regulars were happy to receive visitors on a lazy Sunday afternoon

For those who love rusty old Oz farm implements, there was something for them also

 And oh yes, the cars. Below are some of the cars that attended the event


 Thanks to all who organized today's outing, much appreciated.
