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

28 Chev Ute arrives in Moe

From Grant Fowlers Blog 8th December 2015

Not sure if I posted this at the time, so here it is again...... maybe

1928 Chev Ute Arrives in Moe

My good friend of 25 years Gerry rings me the other day, "I brought an old 28 Chev ute and its coming down on the weekend etc"... Well it arrived on the trailer from northern Victoria and yes it is all complete and very original, the engine starts and runs smoothly with most things in the right place including the rear old wooden tray, I love it and can just see it getting around town after a good tidy up of the running gear etc, then a few cans of WD40 thrown over the top of it and a quick rub down with a scouring pad so the patina can shine through..
