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

28 Ute Restoration - Day 93

With other priorities that have seen no activity since 16th February 2016, there was a small flutter of work yesterday.

For the first time since the ute was stripped, it is back on 4 wheels, be they "push around the yard" only wheels.

What started as a garage clean up yesterday may be the start of some night time activity over summer.
