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

2016 Picnic in the Park - Scoresby

Great event today with the Federation Scoresby Picnic

The numbers may have been down a little on last year, but all attending appeared to have a good day out, and the mix of cars catered for all motoring tastes.

From a Veteran T model Ford right up to the latest Mustang.

With the venue being the National Steam Centre there was the added bonus of viewing both static and working steam engines and vehicles from a long gone era.

Well done to the  Dandenong Valley Historic Car Club who ran the event.

Not forgetting the Cars, the Tractors, the Machines, and of course the people who made the event an outing not to be missed on the car enthusiast calendar.

With the theme of the event being the Changing Face of Ford in Australia, here are a few examples of some nice Blue Oval badged cars

Not to be outdone, a few nice Chevs were also on display

There was a good mix of classic and post classic cars also

Some really nice tractors

The nippers enjoyed the Baby Animal Zoo

But to me, the attraction will always be the Vintage cars


See you there next year!
