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

The Red Chev's Big Day out in Warragul

The following is from Grant Fowlers Blog

And tells the story of the Red Chev's 120 mile round trip on the 30th April.


Saturday afternoon and you could not of asked for a better sunny autumns day here in Oz, and just as well because old Monty and Ray Deans "The Red Chev" were on call for a few photos in leafy Bowen Street, Warragul for my daughters Deb Ball with her friends from school.


When the camera's stopped clicking Ray then chauffeured the two of them out to the event at Lardner Park. Sadly ole Monty had to pass on the chauffeur duties due to the lack of roof, messy windblown hair is not an ideal look for a gathering like this.
Once they reached their destination Ray then made the 100km trip back down the Hwy to Melbourne and from all reports The Red Chev never missed a beat and the kids were very grateful for the lift.
Great effort once again Ray and many thanks for the use of your immaculate 28.
