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

Nothing Like a 198 k run in a 1938 Lasalle

I was recently invited by my mate Les Francis, to join him for a run through Gippsland, an offer I could not refuse.

Travelling in comfort as the passenger, with the sound of a powerful V8 just burbling in the background.

We stopped off for a quick look at the Old Trestle Bridge, near Noojee, then headed towards the "Tool Shed" bistro in Noojee, where we had a great lunch, just a few metres from a roaring open fire.

Checked out a few roads and hills on the way home, all of which the Lasalle handled perfectly in top gear.

After a mandatory visit to the Alpine Trout Farm for Les to pick up some Smoked Trout, the Lasalle was pointed homewards, via Yarra Junction.

Very nice way to spend a winter afternoon, but mind you Les, a heater would be better next time.

Below are a few pictures from a great outing, thanks Les.
