Crooked Garage




1912 Overland
Currently owned by Graham and Marjorie Crittenden of Kingaroy, Whitey was recently refurbished by family members to celebrate the 100th anniversary of its Australian Speed attempt on the beach at Southport in 1916. This famous car was rescued in the early 1960’s and restored by the Guthrie family. The wreck had fallen to an ignoble fate of being used by a farmer for pulling stumps because of the great engine power. Owned by current owners since 1966, Whitey was refurbished last year to its former glory through information gained from historical documents and advice from the original riding mechanic Mr Wally Webb (dec). Whitey was owned and raced by Mr Fred Z Eager during its racing period.
