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

Goldilocks comes to the Red Chev

Pleased to say the rear spring situation has had a happy ending.

For the first 30 odd years the Red Chev had reset springs that I think were commercial, very hard, very thumpy.

Late last year I changed over to another set, which initially looked great turned out to be way to soft and bouncy.

Cleaned up and fitted a set of 8 leaf springs, perfect, the ride is great, not too hard, not too soft.
