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

Set The Time Machine to 1942 (for some serious car parts shopping)

Hundreds of junked cars were denied to the war effort by the Lennox Motor Company in Maryland. The owner refused to sell at the established junk prices. (May 1942)

The sad thing is most of these cars aren't even 10 years old in this photo. Unlike cars today that are junked there was plenty of potential to give them new life, but alas, in those days people always wanted the newest thing. Though I imagine if they saw what cars would look like in the late 1980's they'd be scrambling to put these cars back on the road
