White Automobile Questions

Post by alsfarms » Sun Sep 08, 2013 3:19 pm

I have not found any information about a White Club for antique autos. Does one or even a registry exist? I have a few questions about White automobiles, gas not steam.

You mentioned gas not steam. I know of a club in Great Britain that caters
to steam automobiles. The steam car club of Great Britain. On their forums
they discuss White autos quite a bit, now they're steam but Owners of a paticular
make usually possess knowledge beyond their year and may know about
a gas counterpart as well. When it comes to registries you could always start
your own. After all the White motors only produced steam cars up to 1911 so
the window isn't very large in terms of steam. If a collector wanted to acquire
a White it would have to be gas. Good luck.

Would like to know what vintage gas white you are talking about? I know of no white car club out there that is not steam. Rollin White ventured out of steam cars and went into tractors. The company was Cleveland Tractor Co. (Cletrac) In 1924-1925 he started again building auto's at his tractor plant to offset slow tractor sales in the winter months. He couldn't compete with Old Henry on price so shut down. If you are talking about the 'Rollin' I have a lot of info. on them as I have a 1925.

There are lots of gas powered Whites around. What questions do you have about your White? You might also be able to find information about your White at the Horseless Carriage Library. Their website is at http://hcfi.org
