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

Would a Battery Kill Switch have preventred this?

Not a big Hot Rod fan, but its a shame to see someone's pride and joy burnt out due to a battery fire under the back seat. Would a battery kill switch have prevented this?

I know of several fires in vintage cars that did significant damage in the few seconds from when smoke or a fire was noticed, till the seats and floor were removed to kill the battery.

That's why the Red Chev has a kill switch right under my legs, reachable in about 2 seconds
