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 70 - 28 Chev Ute Restoration (25th November 2015)

Today was all about cleaning up the differential housing.

Removing 87 years of rust on the outside, grease, oil and "muck" on the inside.

After several work overs with a powered wire brush inside and out, a couple of high pressure cleans, a liberal spray of WD40, finished with a flush out with petrol, the end result was very pleasing.

Happiness is a diff housing clean as a whistle
