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

Car Club Run to Drouin Speedway

Good old fashioned stock car races were on order for the Dandenong Valley Historic Car Club run today at the Drouin Speedway. Well done and thanks to Les Francis and Ian Clark for organizing the run.

A great overview picture taken by Narelle Francis

A special feature was the Ace of Spades classic stock cars with DVHCC member Simon Wilshire competing in car 93.

Below are a few pictures of some club cars and members. I had taken a lot more however due to a technical problem the ones below are the only ones useable.

The round trip from The Basin was 103 miles (165 kms) at 80-82 kph.
The Red Chev ran fine and the water usage was zero.
