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

1925 Chev found in a chicken shed

Posted by the Filling Station on Facebook

Ron Ludford's 1925 Chevrolet, California

This great looking old Chevy was found in a chicken shed in 2006. The owner put it in the shed in 1953 after his tour in Korea. He planned to fix it up but never got around to it. We had to cut down a couple of trees that had grown in front of the chicken shed door to get her out.

I overhauled the engine, put a new clutch plate in it, scrounged some used tires, re-upholstered the seats, and replaced the running... boards.

A little history; the car was built in Oakland, went to its first owner in Foresthill, California, and then came to Auburn in 1953. I am now the third owner and we enjoy taking her out for a spin often.

We recently took her to the Race of the Gentlemen here on the west coast in Pismo Beach, 16th October.
