The purpose of this Blog
This blog is to detail my 40 years (1973 - 2013) 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 started in 1973 and follow the journey.
Thanks for dropping by.
Regards Ray Dean

Anyone Going to be around Rocklea Qld on the 12th August
The Club's swap meet is held on the second Sunday of August each year. We had over 1,300 participants pass through our gates on 14/8/2011. We'll be there again on 12th August in 2012. Year 2012 will be our 41st swap. We are known as the Chev Car Club Swap but parts for all makes of vehicles are welcomed. Stallholders sell a variety of goods, not all vehicle-related. Held at Rocklea Showgrounds with stall-holders' entry through gate in Goburra Street, Rocklea. Gates open at 5:30am. Sites are free and size of site is not restricted. There are no powered sites available. Entry $4.00 per person. Food tent is located within the swap area and is conducted by the Lions Club which has exclusive rights to the sale of food at the swap. Free parking is available at the Rocklea State School also on Goburra Street. Only a short walk from the carpark to a pedestrian entry in to the showgrounds. A special area within the swap oval is set aside for the safe parking and the display of collector cars. The main gate on the service road which runs parallel with Ipswich Road is for pedestrian entry only - parking on the grassed area opposite the showgrounds is illegal and is policed vigorously. The closest ATM is at the Rocklea Markets. Dogs are not permitted. The Club has a tent manned by Members who are always happy to welcome visiting Members and provide information about the Club. Phone 0412 183 804 for more information in need.
