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 43 - 28 Chev Ute Restoration (19th September 2015)

What a great day. Headed off to Trafalgar at 4.30am, meet up with Grant Fowler and a friend of Grant's,  Eden, the local Metal Polisher, who not only loaned us his car trailer for the day, but also his time.

The destination was Maffra at 8.15am to collect a 1928 Chev rolling chassis and a trailer load of spares.

By lunch time, after a mandatory stop at the Heyfield bakery, and a talk with the local publican who came over for a chat, the parts were safely tucked away in storage at Trafalgar.

Now what to do, what to do?

But in the meantime Grant and I have a good stock of spare parts.

Thanks again to Grant and Eden for your assistance.
