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

Out to Rokeby In Monty the 1928 Chev

Out to Rokeby In The Chev

Gidday,

Misty rain mixed with a strong east wind today but still surprisingly warmish so I flipped open the bonnet, checked the oil and then rolled the Chevy out the driveway and headed off down the Princes Hwy towards Warragul and then out across to Rokeby to catch up with a friend, have a coffee and chat and also to have a look at a few of his early 19th century vintage cars and motorbikes which are all just lovely, rare and all very much road going and drive able.

I lost my hat on the way out there due to the wind from a passing log truck, so I had to stop on the way back and grab it, and while I'm there on the side of the road grab another photo of the Chevy which is always a must do to and add to the collection, you can never have to many :)

Old Monty ran very well again, the little 4 cylinder is not a big fan of the strong head wind but always just keeps plodding along and gets me home at a steady 45mph, although this time it was a little damp on anything that sticks up above the top on the windscreen..

Out along Bloomfield Road, just north of Nilma.
