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

1924 Reo Bus

Came across this today a few k's from home. The latest addition to the Bluemoon hire fleet.

Very sweet........................


  1. Ray, thanks for the Bus pictures. It"s been many years ago now, I drove a 36 White School Bus. It needed to be double clutched until I got the hang of shifting it without the clutch. Thanks for the fond memories.

  2. Hi Don,

    Thanks for your reply, and how is your Chev restoration going.
