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

Monthly Sunday "Breaky" Car Club Meet - Gippsland 12th January 2014

A great few cars in this posting from the blog of Grant and Monty the 1928 Chevrolet


What a great turnout it was again on a lovely Sunday morning, I would think that close to 80 or so classic cars of all makes, models and ages gathered around the public car park in the Warragul town centre from 8am onwards for a few hours of banter and bullshit with the owners and like their cars, the ages of the owners varies a lot which is great to see... A great bunch of blokes!!

Today I laid my eyes on a couple of 1920 Sunbeams, yes big old cars indeed with one soon to get the restoration treatment again after its last 1960's makeover which no doubt will come up a lovely after talking to the new owner.

And the other Sunbeam, well not much to say really except "bloody hell"....

Its originally from New Zealand and comes complete with an aeroplane engine hanging out both sides of it and it sounded just amazing as it "taxied" into the car park and came to a stop and after a quick chat with the owner, I was told that when cruising at legal highway speed which is 100kph the massive engine is just ticking over at 1100rpms... How Nice!!
