Geoghe­gan fam­ily col­lec­tion

mag­nif­i­cent shots are cour­tesy of Nanette Geoghe­gan. Her late hus­band Ian and brother-in­law Leo were quite handy be­hind the wheel, you know. They dove­tailed their rac­ing with op­er­at­ing Geoghe­gans Sporty Cars. Son-in-law An­drew is some­thing of a col­lec­tor of pe­riod deal­er­ship shots and the fam­ily’s own ar­chives are a trea­sure trove that he was keen to share with AMC read­ers. The images here de­pict the smaller Bur­wood yard, circa 1964, and the larger, glitzier Haber­field site, also on Parramatta Road, but closer to Syd­ney’s CBD. An­drew’s best guess is “late 1960s” for the Haber­field shots. Also in­cluded is a promo race for Grace re­moval vans at Oran Park in­volv­ing Pete.
