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

A great 1932 Chev from the USA that belongs to Francis Holtz'

Francis Holtz' 1932 Chevrolet, PA, USA.

"I started this body off restoration June 2012 with an original paint body that was stored since 1952. The 23 month of hard enjoyment was worth every minute. I rebuilt the engine, all chrome triple chromed, new mohair interior, new tires, stainless exhaust. Top quality materials used. No short cuts!!!!!
Motor rebuild included Valve guides, valves grinded , resurfaced head, magiflexed, rebabed rods, wrist pins, rings. I have 400 miles on the ...engine and just change the oil today, it looked good. Good power on hills. Engine temp runs just above the cold line, radiator is new recore. New water pump from The Filling Station that has bearings. I adjusted the steering and put a new horn / bushing in the column, horns work. The brake shoes are good and adjusted, but pulls a little to the left when first applied, then stops good. The wiring is all new original cloth and everything works. New old stock gas tank and the gauge works. It was painted one year ago."
