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

Day 2 - 28 Chev Ute Restoration (28th April 2015)

Radiator off, headlight bar and bumper off, and about a dozen frozen nuts and bolts gently persuaded to leave the car with a cold chisel and mash hammer.

Chassis very rusty as I suspected, but does not appear to be structural.

Both front chassis rails have had a decent hit some time back, both are bent, and a bit of TLC will be required.

Todays pictures are as follows
