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

Red Chev goes to the beach (well sort of)

Took the Red Chev out for its first run for about a month, also wanted a long trip to make sure the 6 to 12 volt convertor was working ok for the GPS.

Ended up doing a 94 mile round trip to Rosebud.

Freeway most of the way, sitting on a blistering 45 MPH, yes I know, speed demon.

Thought I would grab some breakfast at Rosebud. Bad idea, prices through the roof, must be the start of the high (summer) season. Chicken wrap and coffee at Maccas was the outcome. No way this little black duck is going to pay over $20 for Bacon & Eggs.

Chev ran very well, converter no problem, max voltage showing on the muti-meter was 13.4

Roll on summer, we are both ready for ya!
