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

1917 Chev V8 Engine

Just to show nothing is new, here is a V8 engine, 97 years old.

In 1917 Chevrolet manufactured the Series D V8 engine with 288 cubic inches, overhead valves, crossflow heads, 55 HP… and it was manufactured 38 years before the small-block Chevrolet engine.
